Breakwaters, Groynes & Revetments
We incorporate climate change projections and scenarios into all of our designs. As sea surface temperatures rise, we have been witnessing the effects of this with more frequent Category 4 and 5 hurricanes. These storms have had devastating impacts on coastal infrastructure across the region. We engineer and build resilient coastal protection by specifying economic and fit-for-purpose solutions.
A seawall might be right for an elevated coastal road, but a rock revetment might be the perfect solution for property fronted by a sandy shoreline. And what about building breakwaters to reduce the waves from offshore and allowing the natural shoreline to be the 2nd line of defence? Building a marina is likely going to require groyne or a breakwater. We will build the breakwater and then the piers and docks.
Our team has designed and/or built structures on almost every Caribbean island. Our experience allows us to identify potential hiccups from the early stages of the project and find innovative resolutions. We understand the various environmental regulations and know how to meet international design specifications and tolerances. Our design-build philosophy is to build for function, form and financial feasibility in a sensitive environment.
Jetties & Piers
For recreation, fishing or international trade, jetties and piers are our gateways to the ocean. Whether it’s a jetty to launch a catamaran trip, docks for mega yachts or berths for fishing vessels, we apply our innovative techniques to build cost-effective solutions. Our different piling solutions offer flexibility and rapid response to a variety of development needs.
We develop the engineering in-house and we couple this expertise with our experience and know-how to be cost-effective, efficient and appropriate. We have our own equipment (barge, tug, crane, dredge, excavators, loaders, etc.) fully capable for work throughout the Caribbean.
We specialize inVinyl Sheet Pile installation to stabilize land/water margins, where their high resistance to corrosion and long life make an ideal solution in Caribbean waters, where corrosion is rampant, due to the combination of high water temperatures and highly active marine organisms.
