Martens has experience in a wide range of coastal engineering projects involving open-ocean, estuarine, lagoon and coastal river system environments. We undertake investigations and provide engineering design solutions for coastal developments at varying scales ranging from ‘home-owner’ level (including pontoons, slipways, boat sheds, jetties, and retaining walls), through to larger scale investigations (such as estuary management, coastal flooding and inlet management schemes).

Our key service areas include:
  • Estuarine processes
    • Hydrodynamic survey
    • Hydrodynamic modelling
    • Salinity modelling
    • Pollutant dispersal
    • Stratigraphic survey and testing
    • Sedimentation processes
  • Coastal hazards
    • Coastal erosion and hazard definition
    • Environmental risk and impact assessment
    • Coastal flooding and inundation modelling
    • Risk mitigation
  • Coastal management
    • Coastal planning levels
    • Risk management
    • Sea level rise impact assessment
Structures and activities for which we provide design and investigation services include:
  • Seawalls
  • Marinas
  • Revetments
  • Groynes
  • Breakwaters
  • Training walls
  • Beach nourishment
  • Dune reconstruction
  • Configuration dredging
