Our engineers are adept at interpreting geotechnical data and specifying additional studies needed for complete design of barrier structures, and design a workable solution to remedy the problem.
Often, as a basis for the detailed design, a hydrographic study, including assessment of water level variations, wind speeds, wind-generated waves, and wake from passing vessels is examined. We also assess tidal currents and vessel-generated currents to mitigate any future construction delays.
