Gerwick designs marinas and small craft harbors for both commercial and recreational boaters.

We work with local agencies and harbor districts to provide accessible marinas that meet boater demands and environmental demands such as wind, wave, impact, boat wake, and earthquake.

Our staff is actively involved in development and refinement of regulations related to the operational and seismic design of marinas and small craft harbors. We have been working with the local and regional agencies in California to develop a tsunami resistant marina design for piling and floats. Using our coastal modeling tools available to determine potential tsunami events and the associated loading on the guide piles and floats, we have developed mitigation measures for improved guide piling and float performance for operational and tsunami conditions.
