WILTSHIRE, UK, August 3, 2007 -- A landmark comprehensive coastal protection and restoration plan for the state of Louisiana has been unanimously approved by Louisiana's state legislature.

It represents a year of work by the Louisiana Coast Protection and Restoration Authority, and their contractors. Halcrow has played a crucial role in this team, providing direction on the plan formulation process and the approach to prioritizing plan implementation.

The high-profile plan integrates hurricane protection and ecosystem restoration to protect the fragile coastal environment at the mouth of the Mississippi River, as well as the people and properties in the state of Louisiana.

Halcrow has received high praise for its work on the plan. The authority's feedback gave Halcrow scores of five out of five across the board in categories such as 'quality of deliverables', 'meeting your need and responsiveness to your requirements' and 'professionalism, expertise and technical standards'.

The feedback form stated: "This project integrated hurricane protection and ecosystem restoration in a way that had not been previously accomplished -- Halcrow's previous experience in the UK, creativity, and ability to adapt was central to our success in creating the first plan of its kind in Louisiana."

The authority highlighted the exceptional work of project manager Adam Hosking, stating: "The quality of deliverables consistently exceeded expectations... we thoroughly enjoyed working with Adam... he brought great insights into the planning process".

The plan can be viewed online at www.lacpra.org.
