Dresdner Robin enhances service offerings within geospatial analysis and resiliency planning

Dresdner Robin on Tuesday said it has expanded its services to now include resiliency planning and geospatial analysis and mapping, utilizing geographic information systems, or GIS. This move reflects the Jersey City-based firm’s commitment to providing solutions that address the evolving needs of clients in the fields of urban planning, environmental science and infrastructure development.

“Our further expansion into geospatial analysis and mapping, along with resiliency planning services, is a testament to our commitment to innovation and client-centric solutions,” Tony Ianuale, chief operating officer and chief financial officer of Dresdner Robin, said. “These enhanced services will enable our clients to navigate complex challenges and achieve their project goals with greater precision.”

GIS is a computer system for capturing, storing, checking and displaying data related to positions on Earth’s surface. It helps users understand patterns, relationships and geographic context and is a crucial part of spatial data infrastructure. The firm’s geospatial analysis and mapping services will support projects ranging from indoor racetracks to mixed-used developments to stormwater drainage. Specific services will include contaminant and groundwater modeling, environmental assessment, 2D and 3D modeling and insight for recreational space remediation.

“GIS technology plays a pivotal role in shaping the future of urban development and environmental planning,” Frankie Albin, GIS manager at Dresdner Robin, said. “We’ve seen success in projects where our team had already implemented GIS and are thrilled to expand the service offerings to all clients, regardless of the project. Our team is dedicated to harnessing the power of GIS to create resilient and sustainable solutions for our clients.”

Alongside geospatial analysis and mapping, the company is also offering enhanced resiliency planning services to assist communities in being proactive about coping with threats related to extreme weather and other climate change patterns.

2021 updates to the New Jersey Municipal Land Use Law require communities to incorporate a climate change-related hazard vulnerability assessment as part of their Land Use Element of the Master Plan. This new service is aimed to support those requirements by helping clients identify potential hazards and threats, and then establish adaptation, mitigation and recovery plans.
