Marstel-Day staff have prepared over 100 Installation Complex Encroachment Management Plans (ICEMAPs, REMAPs, ECPs) for the U.S. Air Force and Marine Corps. These plans assist leadership and decision-makers in preventing encroachment challenges, reducing impacts on missions, and enhancing sustainment through training of installation and community personal on encroachment issues and on management frameworks, in addition to engaging internal and external stakeholders on promotion of compatible landuse partnerships.
Marstel-Day has deployed its Environmental War Gaming (EWG) methodology as an interactive simulation of events, strategies, policies, positions, and attitudes following a scenario played out by key stakeholders. We use EWG to bring together military, civic, industry, political, administrative, and nongovernment leaders and other diverse stakeholders, to assess and respond to disruptive change from previous planning paradigms.

We’re living in a challenge in real time. Particularly from an evolutionary perspective. The COVID-19 pandemic is causing immense change and disruption to every industry, not the least of which is the AEC industry. But is there a silver lining? We think so. It puts us out of our normal comfort zone to test ourselves with new technologies and new ways of doing things. Adapting to new ways of doing business. So, as you program, plan and implement your infrastructure projects, take advantage of this moment to drive innovation. Tune in. We have a lot to say.
