One of the biggest threats to today's society is the impacts of climate change. Communities within coastal zones are some of the most sensitive and vulnerable to these impacts. We provide a range of technical skills, which aim to assess and help to provide mitigation and adaptation.

We specialise in coastal management and engineering, taking projects through their life cycles from coastal policy assessment to detailed design and construction supervision. Our team aims to enable coastal communities to become climate resilient, providing significant contributions to the sustainable development goals (SDGs) and improving social outcomes.

These projects include coastal resilience measures such as shoreline protection, stabilisation, beach and dune nourishment, evaluation of sea level rise, storm impacts, ecosystem enhancement, intertidal habitat creation, and waterways.

We've helped to deliver the most innovative and cost-effective solutions to some of the most challenging projects around the world. State-of-the-art modelling capabilities enable us to analyse potential problems and help you determine the best-performing solution.

Our coastal team offers the full range of services needed to plan, design and manage each project efficiently and effectively, saving our clients time and money.
