- What is STARR?
STARR is a JV comprised of two proven leaders in DFIRM mapping, risk assessment, risk communication, and mitigation planning: Atkins and Stantec. Under this alliance, STARR partners work as one in a common vision and purpose to reduce the loss of life and property caused by floods.
