Port planning and design transformed

Our specialized team combines worldwide knowledge with local project delivery to design economically viable and environmentally sustainable ports and marine terminals. Services include master planning, project management, design, geotechnical engineering, sustainability, and resiliency. We also manage permitting/regulatory approvals for container, general cargo, dry bulk, oil and gas, auto, cruise, ferry, defense installations, and small craft harbor facilities. By combining the expertise of our multi-disciplinary planners, scientists, architects, and engineers, we can create seamless solutions for waterfront developments or revitalizations.

With ultra large, post-New Panamax vessels now common place, and more stringent regulatory requirements, the maritime industry is expanding and improving port, harbor, and navigation infrastructure. We help our clients on everything from port expansion to harbor deepening, dredge material management, and environmental impact assessments.

From enhancing port profitability to integrating port activities with innovative information systems, we’re focused on resilient, economical, bottom-line solutions.
