Arcadis’ pro bono program donates the design,
engineering and consulting expertise of Arcadians
to community projects across North America.
Inspired by our people’s passion to create positive impact in their daily lives, Arcadis North America launched our pro bono program in 2018.
The initiative provides the expertise of Arcadians at no cost to community-led development projects that demonstrate the potential of improving quality of life for others.
To be considered, Arcadians submit project proposals and an Arcadis executive committee selects the winners annually.
Arcadis is partnering with Russell: A Place of Promise to transform a former cigar manufacturing facility located on an abandoned five-acre property known as the Madison Street Warehouses into a vibrant community hub offering safe housing, business and job opportunities, much-needed banking and food choices, and positive entertainment options for residents and visitors.WATCH THE VIDEO

Arcadis—together with Life Remodeled and its partners—worked to repurpose a historic building into a community innovation center focused on entrepreneurship, employment, education and community. The Durfee Innovation Society officially opened in April 2018, and provides recreation, after-school programming, and new and effective career pathways and real-world educational experiences for Detroit public school students.WATCH THE VIDEO
Focused on turning “gray to green” in the second largest city in the U.S., Arcadis collaborated with The Nature Conservancy’s Urban Conservation Program to promote the use of natural infrastructure to solve pressing urban environmental challenges such as stormwater management. Arcadis supported the development of a desktop tool to identify, analyze, prioritize and demonstrate the best places to locate green stormwater infrastructure projects that will maximize benefits, including biodiversity and public heath impacts.READ THE NEWS RELEASE
