Approximately 40 percent of the United States population lives in counties directly on the shoreline and 44 percent of the world’s population lives within 150 kilometers of the sea.
AECOM helps communities and businesses understand, maintain and design sustainable coastal environments throughout the world. Our coastal engineering experts use high-tech models and monitoring devices to understand the forces affecting coastal environments including sea level rise, tides, erosion, waves and storms surge. This understanding provides the basis for the innovative designs for sustainable coastal structures and nature-based applications that AECOM has developed for coastal areas.
From coastal restoration projects, to port planning, to storm surge modeling, and beyond, AECOM’s diverse coastal engineering professionals can provide a design solution that meets the needs of each unique coastal location.
