A focus on coastal and marine resilience

Our teams deliver innovative solutions for waterfront and port facilities, waterways and inlets, offshore infrastructure, and coastal community and environmental protection and restoration. Understanding coastal processes and their interaction with the built environment, we offer full services in coastal engineering and design—from feasibility studies and cost/benefit analysis to design, permitting, and construction monitoring and environmental disaster planning, mitigation, and response.

We live and work in the communities impacted by rising sea levels—the responsibility to sustain critical infrastructure is personal for us.

Delving deeper

It’s estimated that between 35% and 40% of the US population lives within a community that will be impacted by sea level rise. Plus, coastal ecosystems have some of the highest species diversity on the planet. At the intersection of these two facts, our teams apply their expertise to make communities more resilient and protect the integrity of the environment. From assessments and permitting to mitigation, restoration, monitoring, and more, we keep coastal communities healthy. Read More
