Engineering Design

Triton provides quality design services with an emphasis on providing solutions for marine, waterfront and underwater projects.  Design and analysis expertise includes:

  • Finite element analysis
  • Vessel mooring analysis and design of mooring facilities
  • Component design using high-performance plastics
  • Structural design using steel, concrete, and timber
  • Foundation design – including piling.

Design Build Process

In many instances, it is more efficient and cost-effective to develop a facility on a design-build basis.  Triton, as the designer, recognizes the needs of both client and contractor and has participated in numerous successful projects for the U.S. Navy, and private shipyards and boatyards.  Our input into the design-build process includes:

  • Review and interpretation of performance specifications
  • Development and refinement of design criteria and parameters
  • Preliminary design for bid
  • Coordination of field investigations and surveys
  • Preparation of submittals
  • Design of temporary and permanent works
  • Field inspections and supervision
  • Close-out reports and as-built drawings

Installation Engineering

The successful deployment and installation of complex facilities and structures in a marine or offshore environment requires careful planning and engineering skills.  Triton’s exptertise includes:

  • Interpretation and evaluation of site environmental and geotechnical conditions
  • Determination of resources for installation and construction of facilities
  • Preparation of detailed procedures for transportation and installation of sub-sea structures and pipelines
  • Design of aids to installation including padeyes and rigging
  • Design of floatation devices and equipment for controlled sinking of pipelines and structures


Triton’s quality assurance programs extend beyond the office and include condition surveys of existing facilites as well as inspection and supervision of new construction.  Services and capabilities include:

  • Detailed inspection of underwater structures including piers, bulkheads, and pipelines
  • Coordination of diver inspections including NDT
  • Evaluation of sites for new construction including coordination of surveys and geotechnical investigations
  • Inspection of steel fabrication
  • Coordination of materials testing
  • General inspection and supervision of construction activities
