Seashore Engineering established in February 2012, combining the staff and skills of Damara WA Pty Ltd with Shore Coastal Pty Ltd. Based in Western Australia, our knowledge base has been developed through managing numerous coastal management issues over many years in this state and beyond. This includes projects for local, state and federal government, port authorities, oil and gas and mining industry and the wider private sector.
Prior to the formation of Seashore Engineering, Damara WA and Shore Coastal had established a strong working relationship, providing extensive professional support to each other over the preceding five years. This collaboraton contributed to approximately a quarter of all projects, including large contracts like Chevron’s Wheatstone project and projects for the Department of Transport and the City of Busselton.
The establishment of Seashore Engineering has broadened the scope of services able to be provided by further enhancing the relationship between the two companies and allowing for more effective and efficient professional advice and review.
The directors of the Seashore Engineering are Matthew Eliot (BEng, BSc) and Stuart Barr (BEng). The directors are Principal Coastal Engineers with a combined experience in the order of 40 years in the field of coastal engineering in Western Australia and the wider region.
Seashore Engineering has two offices, a metropolitan office in Innaloo (5 in-house staff) and a regional office in Margaret River (4 in-house staff). The metropolitan office provides a key point of contact to support clients based in Perth or Fremantle whilst the regional office provide a key base for coastal engineering projects in the southwest (Busselton, Port Geographe, Augusta Boat Harbour, City of Bunbury).
Seashore Engineering is committed to providing consistent, timely, and high quality service to our clients. We consider it important that our services meet the needs of our client in a clear and concise manner for effective delivery and practical advice. We pride ourselves on the high technical quality of our work and the ability to understand coastal systems for application in coastal engineering, construction management and maritime planning.
Seashore Engineering is uniquely supported by the capacity to provide the services of two of the most experienced coastal specialists in Australia, Dr Bill Andrew and Dr Ian Eliot. The relationship between Seashore Engineering directors and the coastal specialists has been developed over the course of the directors’ professional careers, with the specialists each providing mentoring and technical advice to the directors over many years. The directors recognise that the experience and knowledge of these specialists is invaluable to coastal engineering and management for Western Australia and further abroad.
