Coastal design requires a balance between art and science. We use a broad range of numerical/computer and physical models to test ideas, assess offshore and nearshore processes, evaluate future coastal condition scenarios, and refine design alternatives. We blend this rigorous technical analysis with a visionary, community-oriented waterfront design approach that helps achieve broad support and endorsement. By helping our clients assess and manage their risks while they realize new opportunities, we create resilient design solutions that respond to their full waterfront context and environment. It’s an approach that has guided over five decades of enduring, innovative, and precedent-setting work.
