Marine Safety and Security Impacts

Having a full understanding of regulatory and security requirements in the marine sector, along with their practical application, we are well placed to offer an analysis of impacts and to develop solutions.

Consensus Building

Success in today’s regulatory environment is contingent upon building consensus – we have the expertise to navigate the process.


Risk Analysis

Whatever the project, we offer in depth analysis of risks, actual or perceived, with the identification of rational mitigation measures as required.

Project Feasibility, Analysis & Development

Whatever your project, our knowledge of commodities along with our familiarity with the ports and coast of British Columbia will be at your disposal.

Cumulative Marine Traffic Impacts & Mitigation Measures

A frequent obstacle to new developments is a failure to offer an analysis of cumulative marine traffic impacts. We provide hand-on expertise in both analysis and mitigation options.

Commodity Specific Awareness and Considerations

As a Vancouver marine consultancy, we offer a wide range of commodity expertise in the container, break bulk, dry bulk, liquid and gas sectors.

Coordination of Stakeholder Review Processes

Review processes require inclusive collaboration between stakeholders – an area in which we offer proven expertise.
