Marina & Waterfront Design
RPS has over 30 years experience in planning and designing Marinas and Waterfront developments.
Over the past three decades, RPS has been responsible for planning and design of many waterfront development and marina schemes both nationally and internationally. We have designed and supervised the installation of several thousand pontoon berths and major floating breakwaters around the UK and overseas. Approximately, a further 3,000 berths are at various stages of design.
RPS has provided consultancy advice in waterfront developments to private companies, local and central governments, and can be relied upon to provide dedicated impartial advice to exacting standards.
