Local Engineering

McLaren’s California engineering team provides custom full-service building solutions. With experts in consultation, design, construction support, inspection, and project management.

Our local team of professional engineers, licensed structural engineers, P.E. divers, project managers, and entertainment specialists provide a trusted, innovative approach to private and public projects of every size, shape and scope.



To help protect public health and the environment, the state initiated MOTEMS (Marine Oil Terminal Engineering and Maintenance Standards) establishing minimum engineering, inspection, and maintenance criteria. Each California marine operator is required to complete periodic above and underwater inspections of their marine oil terminal to assess the facility’s fitness-for-purpose.

MOTEMS underwater inspections must be led by a California PE-Diver who is required to dive a minimum of 25% of the structure. McLaren’s California marine engineering group has been deploying underwater MOTEMS audit teams to support above and underwater audits throughout the state. These audit teams are comprised of PE and engineer divers from our specialty inspection, maintenance, and rehabilitation team.

The MOTEMS audit manual provides a structured template for methodically documenting a marine oil terminal’s characteristics and assessing compliance during MOTEMS audits.

Bathymetric Survey +
California Surveying

What is Bathymetry? A bathymetric survey is a type of hydrographic (water-based) survey that maps the depths and shapes of underwater terrain. It is used to illustrate the land that lies below.

As a result, bathymetric surveyors work to obtain an exact representative image of the seabed and identify specific elevations, anomalies, and the presence of any scour around submerged structures. Additionally, they analyze and define the surrounding shorelines, tides, currents, and waves to create a model of overall features.
