Maritime and Coastal Practice

Maritime developments often pose unique challenges. They must be sensitively designed, attractive, functional, cost-effective, and environmentally sustainable. The design must consider coastal processes, including the effects of severe storms and elevated water levels, winds, tides, and currents.

A shift in the marine environment and changing user needs mean upgrades and refurbishments are a priority for our clients. In addition, legislative requirements are now demanding risk assessment, risk management plans and sea level rise assessments are undertaken for many coastal assets.

We understand that efficiency, profitability, and sustained interest from trade customers are essential aspects for a port to maintain results.

Port expansions and upgrades are often required to meet these dynamic demands. Management of aging port assets, including remediation, is a key requirement in ensuring port productivity and safety.

We help port authorities, asset owners and operators involved in bulk ports, container terminals and general cargo terminals, achieve ongoing success.

We assist clients in the control of shoreline erosion, to defend against sea level rise, in the development of navigation channels and harbors, and for coastal recreation provision.

GHD Advisory

GHD Advisory addresses the need for business outcomes that challenge the status quo in our rapidly changing environment, assisting clients to boost outcomes in the Capital (plan), Create (design and construct) and Optimization (operate, maintain and dispose) phases of their projects.

What makes the real difference is our specialist domain knowledge, so that if we prepare an economic business case for a new project, we have the ability to add value through its design and manage construction. Alternatively, if a client wants to close and dispose of some assets, we understand not only the business and financial implications, but the remediation or re-purposing process itself.

The Power of Commitment

Commitment defines how we approach each new project and how we care for one another’s well-being. We feel it. And our clients feel it too. Shoulder to shoulder, for the long term. That’s a powerful proposition. And it's how we’ll continue to create outcomes that go beyond expectations.

We’re curious about your world. We love to investigate. We dive deep to gain the knowledge required in the places you operate. Our reach is global but our need to deliver is local. It’s by staying curious that we are ahead of what you need.
