Waterfront Inspection

Waterfront infrastructure underpins economies worldwide and waterfront inspection is the backbone of this industry. Rising Tide proudly stands tall among the competition with an in-house staff of experienced, ADCI certified engineer-divers to conduct underwater inspections and facility condition assessments. Our service provides a comprehensive evaluation along with the added value and insight needed for future planning. By varying intensity to meet our clients' demands, our waterfront inspections may range from a cursory swim-by to an in-depth investigation. Whether in response to a storm event, as part of a routine maintenance program, or the baseline survey of existing construction, our service is tailored to suit your needs.

Construction Support

Construction Support is the culmination of our ability and commitment towards seeing a project through to the end. It's about bringing designs to fruition; ensuring that work is done safely, properly, and on time. An engineer's duty is to see that structures are built safely for both the contractors who build them and the communities that use them. Rising Tide takes that commitment and brings it to the waterfront. Our team provides the crucial link between Owners, Contractors, and Designers. We review designs, consider logistics, and anticipate conflicts before they arise in the field.
