Adaptable and resilient solutions are critical for natural and built environments in the vicinity of coastal and marine systems. Geosyntec brings a worldwide team of multi-disciplinary experts to provide coastal and waterfront services and solutions.

Geosyntec’s waterfront practitioners work collaboratively with a variety of clients, including municipalities, ports, private developers, civil engineers, and landscape architects, to provide multidisciplinary, technically advanced, innovative, value- added service offerings and comprehensive cost-saving solutions for nearshore, upland, and in-water improvements projects for our waterfront clients. Geosyntec’s waterfront-focused practitioners comprehensively serve our clients in multiple technical practices areas.

We understand the strategic importance of urban development of waterfront communities and waterfront commerce and the intersection of the societal commitments required to reduce impacts in watersheds for flood control (riverine and stormwater), sea-level rise, resiliency requirements. Geosyntec works collaboratively with project stakeholders to understand their vision. We then integrate their vision and scope with engineering solutions that address environmental conditions, geotechnical challenges, permitting, and regulatory requirements.

Coastal systems are dynamic and complex. Our multidisciplinary approach assists public and private clients to implement successful coastal protection and waterfront restoration projects.

Whether addressing new marina development, coastal engineering challenges or environmental impact concerns, we apply the latest technologies and management strategies to achieve client objectives in a cost-efficient manner.

Combining environmental studies, coastal engineering, and marina procurement expertise, we develop master plans to integrate marina market, business, and planning analyses. These multifaceted services provide economically sound, operationally effective and resilient solutions.

Using a holistic perspective paired with an interdisciplinary team, the goal is to perfectly balance guest experience, utility, and economic benefit with every project.
