In the span of our operation, we have been at the forefront of multifunctional coastal design and construction, globally. Our small but dedicated team has significantly contributed to research and development in the field, with over 100 technical papers presented at international conferences.


These endeavors echo our commitment to delivering cost-effective, agile solutions to a wide range of projects.


At ICM, we are eager to hear from you. We want to understand your unique coastal challenges, and offer solutions that align with your needs.


We invite you to contact us and begin a conversation.  We're sure it will lead to a solution that goes beyond your expectations.


Angus Jackson
Executive Engineer & Director

Angus has over 45 years’ experience in Local Government and Consulting.  From the early 80s to mid-90’s he was responsible for management of the Gold Coast’s extensive beach and waterway systems developing a range of innovative methods and systems that helped position Queensland’s Gold Coast as a world leader in coastal and waterway management as well as climate change adaption. Angus established ICM in the mid-90’s and has worked on projects, often innovative world firsts, in Australia and Internationally, and has authored and co-authored over 65 technical papers.


Bobbie Corbett
 Senior Principal Engineer

Bobbie has over 20 years’ experience in a broad range of coastal, estuarine and waterway projects that have included very active coastlines and more environmentally sensitive coastal zones and waterways. While structural solutions can be more traditional, many have been innovative in design, multi-functional and utilise alternate construction materials and methodologies.  Her involvement often spans the full life of a project from feasibility studies to post-construction monitoring and condition assessment. She has authored and co-authored over 35 technical papers.
