Our Work in the Marine + Coastal Sector

As one of McLaren Engineering Group’s largest markets, our accomplishments range from simple pier and bulkhead designs to more complex berths and ship terminals. Our innovative ferry terminal designs were pivotal in the proliferation of passenger vessel transportation.

By pioneering the “engineer-as-diver” concept, we were at the forefront of the national waterfront renaissance by delivering professional engineering (PE) design expertise to the underwater inspection process.
