Coastal and waterway structural maritime design, development and construction
Maritime schemes are complex. The interaction between the land and manmade structures, the sea (or other waterways) and the elements, must be carefully managed whilst minimising the impact on the natural environment.
At R G Parkins, we design civil and structural engineering solutions for the most challenging environments. Our maritime specialists have a diverse range of experience in developing successful schemes from new large-scale maritime structures to repairing and refurbishing existing assets.
Whatever the scale of project, we will find the right solution for your difficult maritime problem. Our team can lead the design and implementation of all civil and structural works on a large harbour scheme, manage a smaller project within a larger scheme or tackle a smaller restoration project.
We can also prepare design, specification and tender documents, support you with the planning or permissions process and provide Principal Designer services.
Whatever the scale of project, our multi-disciplinary team will ensure our proposed solutions have been considered holistically to manage the complex relationship between the effects of water and the elements and your structures and operations.
