Maritime transportation and security play a critical supporting roles in the economic success of our port cities. Infrastructure such as piers, wharves, bulkheads, and other waterfront and coastal structures must be planned, designed, and maintained to create cost effective and efficient infrastructure for the maritime community. Working with both public and private clients, our waterfront engineering team understands the implications of changes such as the expansion of the Panama Canal, the limitations of aging infrastructure, and concerns around climate change and resilient design.
With access to transdisciplinary knowledge, our marine engineers collaborate with planners, environmental specialists, and GIS experts to take a holistic approach to developing solutions. From conceptual design of ports or shipyards to detailed design of piers, wharves, and drydocks, our waterfront team aims to provide design solutions that are economical, constructible, and promote long service lives for waterfront facilities.
