Ports & Maritime

Full Service Ports, Marine and Coastal Engineering

As a leading firm in ports and maritime planning and design projects, we integrate our diverse skill sets and custom-fit teams into every task. Our ports experts provide every aspect of maritime facility planning and design, both waterside and landside, as well as the exceptional project management expertise that has set us apart in other markets.

With engineering services provided on more than 450 marine terminals across the world, our knowledge is deep — ranging from ship docks to shoreline protection, dredging and industrial facilities, plus unique projects such as the berthing of historic ships. We offer significant experience planning and designing container terminals and have the top tier freight rail experts to complement.

Specialized Maritime Expertise

Performing port-related work requires a unique understanding of vessel, cargo load/offload and yard operations. Port facilities, wharf design and inland ports all require specialists who understand the dynamic conditions and specific needs of each facility. The community of consultants that specializes in the delivery of these types of challenging projects is relatively small, and we are proud to be among the elite providers of these services.

Ensuring smooth cargo flows, maximizing operational efficiency and achieving a competitive advantage in your industry are our priorities. We use our comprehensive technical expertise and big-picture understanding to partner with you to bring innovation and ideas together — planning and implementing your program to achieve a successful future.

As the maritime industry evolves to accommodate Post-Panamax vessels, we are working with seaports and private industries in North America, Latin America and the Caribbean to evaluate economic impacts, design the required infrastructure and accelerate construction of improvements. Our resources from around the world will position you for success.
