Coastal and Marine Design Build (CoastalMDB) was created out of a joint venture partnership between two renowned regional firms in the field of Coastal Engineering Design and Marine Construction. Spawning out of a regional need, these two companies forged a partnership to deliver cost effective, innovative and Caribbean-appropriate solutions. Adaptability, innovation and fit-for-the Caribbean environment are some of our key drivers that help to deliver a streamlined experience from concept design stage, through to environmental approvals and construction. With more than 21 years of regional design expertise, Smith Warner International (SWI) and Complete Marine Services (CMS), a marine construction company formed in 2004, the partnership has been successfully delivering on projects across the region.
CoastalMDB, a St. Lucia registered company, was formed in 2015 and has since successfully completed and is currently working on large projects in St. Lucia and Turks and Caicos Islands.
