More than 60% of the world’s population lives within coastal areas. Living, working and playing at the waterside is becoming increasingly popular throughout the world.

Marinas and Waterfront Developments

The complex nature of these waterside developments requires an integrated approach, encompassing engineering and environmental issues on land and in the water. Therefore, our primary focus is the relationship between water, land and the urban context.
