Our coastal engineers work to assess coastal erosion and submersion risks. Using available data, land and marine surveys, state-of- the-art modelling tools, aerial pictures, historical site information, environmental habitats, and social use characterization, we can harness a thorough understanding of the coastal processes at play and the associated coastal risks. Our shore protection work includes rock revetment, beach and dune nourishment, detached breakwaters, groins, cliff stabilization and bulkheads, as well as adaptation and retreat strategy development.
We employ the “Living Shoreline” approach when developing our projects. Consequently, we promote open channels of communication with oversight agencies, local environmental groups and social specialists when developing concepts, in order to maximize community support and ecosystem integration. Our projects are designed to work in harmony with their surroundings and to minimize the potential impact on environmental resources.
