Coastal Process Investigations
In the Caribbean climate change is reshaping your coastline under the water, with new wave patterns and coastal processes you can’t see. But we can. Before you build, restore, or renovate, let’s take the crucial steps to examine what forces are affecting your coastline.
Environmental Impact Assessment & Coastal Zone Management
It is essential to identify and quantify environmental impacts before designing in a coastal zone environment. We work with your architects and engineers to ensure you are working with, rather than against natural phenomena and mitigating risks that will affect the success of your finished project
When we design the solutions that will enable your property and shoreline to weather the storms, you want to know it will be built to the expected standard as it was designed for. Coastal Construction is highly specialized and very few construction firms have adequate expertise to deliver.
Data Collection & Monitoring
To understand how the ocean is affecting your coastline, we have developed many testing processes, to obtain accurate data so you can see the ocean’s processes under the water. Then our master modellers replicate the cause and effects so that we design for the environmental challenges your property faces.
Flooding & Storm Water Management
In the Caribbean, understanding hurricane risk is vital. Developing and using the best available methods and technology to quantify that risk is essential to ensuring your property is insurable and can withstand increased flooding and storms, before the damage means closing your property or losing business.
Marinas & Ports
Marinas and Ports are battered by underwater forces every minute of the day. Your coastal infrastrustructure is a lifeline to safety, economic activity and supply chains. We assess risks to your existing infrastructure as well as support revitalization, new development and expansion projects.
