Quality, delivered

BMT is well established in its geotechnical and civil engineering capability, further supported by in-house master mariner and naval architecture expertise that can effectively perform mooring, navigation and marine traffic risk studies with proprietary and internationally recognised simulation tools.

Having all needed engineering disciplines in-house, BMT provides efficient, end-to-end engineering design solutions.  Our extensive track record testifies our capability to manage major engineering design projects effectively, and with quality deliverables. 

As technology transforms the way ports and terminals are designed and operated, we continually explore and exploit its possibilities to reduce cost and time and increase safety.


Engineering design services for marine facilities

At BMT our focus is singular - on delivering successful outcomes that unlock each and every site opportunity.

Bulk materials handling and consultancy

We have built a worldwide reputation for designing bulk materials handling systems which help our customers get their commodities such as coal and iron ore onto vessels more quickly and safely, day in day out.

Coastal dynamics

Wind, waves, currents and human activity are constantly reshaping coastlines. Beaches are eroded and rebuilt, nearshore seabeds and river channels remoulded and sediments carried to the coast

Cartography and drafting

Information and data are valuable commodies, so we believe that the clear and concise communication of data is important to our customers.

Specialist dredging consulting

Establishing new port channels and basins and managing the build-up of sediment can present a major obstacle to ports and boat harbours. Removal of seabed material often requires specialist dredging equipment, which is often limited in availability and costly to mobilise.

Floating platforms engineering

Floating structures can provide a cost-effective and innovative alternative to land-based structures.

Risk management and safety case

Our experience in using effective tools and methodologies to manage risk helps customers verify and optimise design early on, when costs are still manageable.

Coastal and Maritime Structures

From building jetties to prototyping new offshore communities, our expertise in designing and managing the construction of coastal structures can help you overcome the complex technical challenges of such projects.
