Our coastal engineering projects and studies include structural and non-structural solutions (Nature Driven Design), coastal protection, offshore land reclamation, beach nourishment by dredging, closure of estuaries or lagoons, breakwaters, ports, access channels and coastal waterfront development.

Royal HaskoningDHV has a long and recognised track record in the implementation of flood alleviation schemes in coastal and river environments. 

We provide advice for the complete range of coastal management projects: from shoreline and coastal zone management plans, site selection and feasibility studies, to the structural design and implementation of large-scale complex works. Our coastal management solutions are developed using the following approach:

  • Thorough assessment of the technical, economic and environmental feasibility of a range of options
  • Selection of the most appropriate solution, taking into account the needs and wishes of communities
  • Design development and application for consents, licences and approvals
  • Detailed design and preparation of contract documents
