As you will see from our projects, we are INNOVATIVE PROBLEM SOLVERS; we provide the best PRACTICAL COST EFFECTIVE SOLUTIONS to the client's coastal problems and projects - not more problems requiring more expensive studies over years while the problem continues and probably gets worse. [Good for the consultant but not the client.].
Our designs are always robust to allow for variability and are constructable with availble construction plant and expertise to minimise risk. We often work with marine contractors and dredge companies to achieve the best results. Knowing that they may have to construct their designs within budget makes our engineers very careful and accountable in the design process.
We also ensure that designs conform to regularatory approval requirements, if Government approvals are required. Thus, we are increasingly called on to design "soft solutions" using materials such as sand filled geotextile containers. As a result, we have developed design and construction methods for such designs through r&d and monitoring of these structures "in the wild!"
We are also experienced with the design and setup of temporary works for Special Events in the coastal zone.
With the extensive experience and expertise of the Principal Engineer, Angus Jackson, staff and specialist associates around the world, ICM has a proven track record in the successful provision of a comprehensive range of services from feasibility studies and preliminary costing to total "turnkey" project management in specialist fields.
