Coastal & Waterfront

The devastating impacts of coastal and waterfront storm damage on infrastructure in recent years has increased demand for planning and engineering services to address the many challenges that lie ahead. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure when it comes to coastal and waterfront resiliency. The effects of climate change have wreaked havoc on the infrastructure of countless communities, resulting in costly repairs and hardships for those impacted. Careful planning is the only way to weather the coming storm.

Understanding Waterfront Environments

The key to providing successful waterfront engineering services is an in-depth understanding of the aquatic environment. This includes the forces from waves, ice and currents, the forces from ships, poor quality foundation soils, and the performance of construction materials in this harsh environment. Tighe & Bond provides this specialized type of engineering using staff with advanced degrees, and specialized training in waterfront, marine, and ocean engineering.
