Deep-water marine ports are the backbone of shipping, manufacturing and processing industries – vital shoreline facilities that require reliable infrastructure for safe and accessible operations. Our experienced civil engineers are uniquely qualified to address the complex needs of marine port facilities, developing robust, cost-effective and sustainable solutions for wharves, piers, bulkheads and mooring structures and other assets – all with minimal disruption to normal operating conditions. Our regulatory expertise and knowledge of geotechnical and structural engineering helps ensure that high-demand marine ports remain viable destinations for large vessel traffic both now and in the future.

Seamless Design Solutions to Ensure Availability, Uptime and Revenue for Large Vessel Port Facilities

Almost 90% of all globally traded goods are transported by water which makes port facilities critical not only to shipping, oil transport and wind farming, but also to commercial fishing, ship building and repair, and ferry/transportation industries. All of which rely on a stable, reliable and resilient coastal infrastructure.


We assess, analyze and design complex port infrastructures, including wharves, piers, mooring structures, bulkheads, and other port facility set-ups with minimal down time.


Our Clients Include:

Oil/Petrochemical Terminal • Dry Bulk/Container Terminals
Electric Power Generation • Transportation/Ferry Terminals 

Ship Building/Repair Facilities • Educational Facilities
Wastewater/Sewerage Facilities • Commercial Facilities
