Coastal and Waterfront

Clients turn to Geosyntec for comprehensive and integrated waterfront improvement solutions that incorporate sustainability considerations.

Our experts understand the environmental, engineering, and regulatory challenges inherent in complex projects involving marine and terrestrial components. Geosyntec has a wide range of technical practices with dedicated staff to support waterfront-focused projects. These practitioners work with industries, municipalities, ports, private developers, and landscape architects to provide multidisciplinary technical services that holistically integrate resilient nearshore, upland, and in-water solutions.

Geosyntec communicates accurately and effectively with stakeholders to understand and integrate their vision and concerns to provide engineering solutions that address environmental conditions, coastal challenges, geotechnical challenges, and often stringent regulations.

With deep experience developing, remediating, and restoring marine and waterfront sites, we understand the complexities of subsurface conditions in upland soils and in-water sediment. This includes developing foundational design requirements for nearshore buildings and marine structures, designing marinas, designing seawalls and breakwaters, dredging and beneficially using dredged materials, and developing stormwater improvements in waterfront areas.
