Worldwide, 2.5 billion people (40% of the world’s population) live within 100 km of the coast, increasing pressure on coastal ecosystems.
Coastal development impacts may be directing such as landfilling, dredging, and coral and sand mining for construction, or indirect, such as increased run-off of sediment and pollutants.
The construction of a variety of infrastructures such as properties (commercial and residential), roads, ports, and breakwaters completely dominate the natural habitats and leads to further rapid coastal damage.
We implement and maintain management systems compliant with internationally recognised standards for health and safety, quality, and environment management. We offer a wide range of services for the construction and maintenance of coastal infrastructures, with particular expertise in:
Well planned, critical infrastructure is essential. By providing investment and planning support throughout the initial stages of infrastructure development, we aim to help you build your growth on solid foundations.
We have a wealth of experience in preparation of plans and strategies for coastal management and we are leading the way in providing expert consultancy services to local governments and decision-makers
We provide vital port-related engineering and environmental planning services, including complete project management from conception to completion.
Establishing new port channels and basins and managing the build-up of sediment can present a major obstacle to ports and boat harbours.
Choosing the right site for your development means taking a clear-sighted view of how each proposed location scores against your key ambitions for the project.
We study baseline water quality conditions, marine ecology, coastal processes, and shoreline erosion to offer port planning impact assessments and specialist dredging management.
With experience across a wide range of geographies, species and groups, we provide expert aquaculture environmental services that are always highly innovative, practical and relevant.
We acquire and analyse wind, weather and sea state data to inform design, engineering and operational decision making.
Industry leading hydraulic modelling software for flood, urban drainage, estuarine and coastal assessments.
Using a marine navigation simulator to investigate complex piloting and manoeuvring procedures in a simulated environment can enhance maritime operations, improve marine pilot decision-making and reduce risk.
Our search and rescue software helps save lives. It combines the experience of world coastguard agencies with our expertise in marine environmental software systems.
