Nowhere else is the delicate balance between man and nature more apparent or sensitive than along our coastlines and waterways. At IWC, we are stewards of the environment, and we translate this philosophy into all our projects and practices. We regularly apply our suite of coastal numerical modeling tools to assess the effect of marina and coastal protection schemes on wave, shoreline and hydrodynamic conditions. Issues such as downdrift coastal erosion, sedimentation/siltation and flushing/water quality are quantified by these tools to ensure the proposed solution minimizes its impact on the surrounding environment. By minimizing the environmental footprint, we are able to maximize the project value for our clients.
