Marine Engineering

With the most advanced and reliable services available in-house, McLaren’s marine engineering division is changing the landscape of the maritime industry. Comprised of over 45 engineers, designers, engineer divers, and scientists, our firm provides unrivaled services in complex waterfront inspection, design, rehabilitation, permitting, and construction management.

Our work ranges from large-scale projects like the expansion of the NYC Ferry system, the design of complex berths and ship terminals, and the support of offshore wind development, to the rehabilitation of piers, bulkhead designs, and dive inspections led by Professional Engineers. From offices nationwide, we support clients with innovative marine engineering solutions from concept to completion and beyond.

Our Marine + Coastal Engineering Services

Marine Structural Design + Geotechnical Engineering

The design and rehabilitation of waterfront facilities require effective integration of coastal, structural, and geotechnical engineering principles. Typical services include site selection and characterization, concept design, berthing and mooring analyses, hand and computer-based analysis, regulatory permitting, marine construction cost estimating, development of contract drawings and specifications, and support during construction. The successful combination of these services and core engineering principles allows us to perform new design and rehabilitation of piers, bulkheads, floating structures, marinas and small craft harbors, marine terminals, and ferry landings in any environment.

Inspection, Maintenance + Rehabilitation

McLaren’s team of industry-leading PE-Divers, engineer divers, and technician divers are highly skilled in the identification of damage and deterioration, the evaluation of cause and significant findings, and in the development of constructible, durable repairs of waterfront structures.

The advantage of utilizing our Professional Engineer Divers lies in the fact that the same engineers performing the inspection are taking the gathered information and performing load calculations, designing repairs, performing service-life analyses, estimating construction costs, and producing contract bid documents.

With over 16 ADCI-certified engineer divers and extensive commercial inspection equipment, we are able to mobilize anywhere in the United States within 24 hours. McLaren’s team can also provide additional planning services through service life evaluation (testing, modeling, and cost-benefit analysis of alternatives) and development of computerized maintenance management systems to assist with managing the long-term planning for any client’s asset inventory.

Coastal Engineering, Permitting + Resiliency

McLaren’s coastal engineering and resiliency practice puts the focus on protecting communities and waterfront facilities through coastal flood risk management, coastal engineering, coastal restoration and mitigation, and waterfront redevelopment. Our engineers understand the dynamics and interdependencies of the physical and ecological functions that are critical to the development of sustainable, resilient solutions, bringing the system back to balance while protecting critical assets and people. We understand the complex environment where land meets water and provide solutions for shoreline protection, waterfront re-development, coastal green infrastructure, flood risk management and dredged material management.

Marine Survey + Mapping

McLaren’s in-house marine survey and mapping team is an integral first step for determining if a project in or near water is conceptually and physically feasible. In addition to large offshore or near-shore construction projects, these hydrographic surveys can also be used as analysis for flood inundation, scour and stabilization, cable route mapping, water-quality studies, waterfront facility inspections, habitat mapping, dam removals, and environmental spills.

McLaren has successfully undertaken hundreds of innovative engineering, inspection, and marine survey projects for clients from NYC to California, and waters around the world. With a portfolio spanning coastal to offshore, discover some of our most iconic marine work.
