Beach Improvement and Monitoring
Over the past 36 years, Baird has been involved in the planning, design and construction of numerous beach stabilization and enhancement projects around the world.
This paper presents a specific project where the marine environment has driven the entire design process including the position, size and design of the coastal structures, including structures specifically for habitat enhancement. It highlights the recent application of a range of complementary methodologies and technologies to support the design, construction and monitoring of such projects.
The final concept is focused on minimizing habitat impacts and creating new opportunities for enhancement, training, and education.
