Marine Consulting

Conceptual Design


DockGuard has unrivalled technical and engineering expertise in mooring solutions. Our consultancy services have provided advice to all types of marine clients, from Port Managers to Maritime Consultants and Contractors.

Our three founding partners are all engineers with more than 40 years of marine experience behind them. With their leadership and direct involvement in every project, our consultancy teams have the ability to take a marine application from first principles, through manufacture, to the overseeing of installation.

We are never afraid to tell it like it is and have been known to guide our clients to significant cost savings by suggesting more efficient alternatives such as fender solutions that can reduce dock build costs.

Our team of structural engineers utilise state of the art 3-D graphics and Cam/Cad engineering software to deliver detailed graphical representations of any new structure that may be proposed by a Port Authority.

We can ensure that all installations comply fully with BS6349 (fender design) and fenders can be supplied tested to berthing velocity or PIANC 2002 recommendations. We have applied for BS5950 and we can provide expert personnel - to operate in a Port Authority or Consultants office throughout a project - in order to design better and more cost-effective solutions for any maritime application.
