Marine & coastal development

Atkins’ specialists provide an integrated approach to the planning and management of coastal and marine environments to ensure their sustainable use and protection.

We create sustainable beach designs and assess the environmental impact of new coastline developments around the world. Our dedicated team can also provide experienced advice on the adaptive design of coastal defence structures and landforms to prepare for a changing climate.

We use innovative modelling techniques to study waves, currents and sediment movement for a variety of purposes ranging from beach tourism design, marine engineering to forecasting storm surge inundation.

Our extensive experience enables us to provide holistic solutions for a wide range of projects, seeking to help coastal conservationists, landscape architects, waterfront developers, industrial port planners and public sector clients.

More information on our experience can be found in the marine and coastal sector, or by taking a look at our coastal and marine environment brochure.
