Engineering for Port Dredging

Over the 30 years that Waterway Surveys & Engineering, Ltd. has been in business, we have found a well defined distinction among our port clients.  They basically fall into four prestigious groups, they are:

  • Port terminals and Port Authorities employ us to survey and manage dredging work at their berthing facilities
  • Large, engineering consultants use us to assist them on multidisciplined port projects
  • Port industries rely on us to keep their shipping berths surveyed
  • Government clients select us because we specialize in dredging
