Design & Construction

Experience in tender, procurement, planning, feasibility, design, infrastructure and construction projects within the maritime ports business

IPC has worked on projects with container terminals, LNG and petrochemical facilities, cruise facilities, ferry terminals, general cargo facilities, fishing harbours and marinas as well as facilities serving Offshore Wind Farms (both floating and fixed). Technical project work has covered a wide range of issues, such as quay and jetty design, dredging, groynes, revetments, breakwaters, beach replenishment, seawalls, port design reviews, master planning, coastal remodelling, navigation simulation, mooring and berthing assessments. We’ve also worked on structural analysis and expert witness work.

We advise clients on project management development scope, manage fieldwork studies (geotechnical and metocean and more), manage delivery teams and prepare cost estimates and programmes. We also create tender documentation, advise on procurement strategy and award processes, including during construction stages of a facility.
