Marine Facilities

Since its beginning, Newfoundland Design Associates Limited has had a strong position in the field of engineering planning, design and construction management related to marine facilities including ferry terminals, petroleum marketing terminals, public wharves and harbour works. It had also led a study of future role and master planning for 59 coastal ports in Newfoundland.

In the field of marine service facilities, the firm has undertaken significant projects for repair and maintenance of marine craft from fishing vessels to ocean-going ships and oil rigs. The projects have called upon the integrated application of various engineering disciplines within the firm including: civil engineering for harbour works, wharves, structures, vessel-lifting facilities, staging areas and building structures; mechanical engineering for services such as steam, compressed air, oxygen, acetylene, fire protection, water, sewage, heating and ventilation; and electrical engineering for power supply and distribution, service connections for ship's power at various internationally-used voltages and for control and communication systems.

The interdisciplinary engineering resources and the proven track record of Newfoundland Design Associates Limited make it a leader in this complex field of engineering in the harsh and unforgiving coastal environment of the North Atlantic.

The following is a representative list of marine projects for which Newfoundland Design Associates Limited, except where a study is indicated, carried out engineering planning, design, contract administration and construction inspection.
