Vice President of Marine Engineering
Hydrographic Survey + Mapping Lead

McLaren’s in-house hydrographic 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.
