When the coast is the question, we are the answer…

Is your shoreline ready for the next hurricane? Is it holding up as wave patterns change and sea levels rise? An assessment can help you evaluate your options so you can plan and shore up before the damage becomes too hard to recover from.

Climate change is a factor on all islands and shorelines bordering the Caribbean. There are proven sustainable environmental management practices we have pioneered across the region, that should be factored into all projects. Both public and private clients can adapt with the right plans and strategies in place to mitigate risk.

We offer ecosystem-based approaches to design:

  • Ridge-to-reef planning
  • Wetland restoration and rehabilitation
  • Constructed wetlands
  • Dune construction and stabilisation

Our approach includes soft and hybrid engineering options to address a changing climate and rising seas:

  • Coastal zoning
  • Coastal setbacks
  • Beach nourishment
  • Atrificial reefs and breakwaters
