Coastal Engineering & Modeling

For more than 30 years, APTIM coastal engineers, modelers, and scientists have provided innovative and industry-leading solutions to government and commercial clients while navigating project constraints and environmental challenges.

The demand for coastal engineering and modeling expertise is growing as a result of stricter environmental regulations and increased variability in coastal conditions caused by climate change. Balancing project design constraints, permitting requirements, construction costs, and long-term maintenance needs, while also accounting for an uncertain future coastal environment, poses significant analytical and planning challenges for stakeholders seeking to build and maintain resilient coastal infrastructure.
