Foundation Design

Good foundation analysis and design solutions are essential to project completion on time and budget. Cathie Associates has developed tools such as OPILE for all offshore pile design analyses, CAISSON for suction caisson design, MUDMAT for mudmat design, JACA for jackup leg penetraton and stability analysis. Our longstanding retained support by a number of developers, EPCI contractors and survey contractors such as Total, Subsea7, Technip, Heerema, Horizon Survey, Benthic provides our best reference for this type or work.

Analysis and design experience exists within Cathie Associates for all types of offshore structures:

  • Driven, vibrated and drilled/grouted piles
  • Gravity base foundations, including with skirted mudmats
  • Suction caissons for foundation or anchors
  • Monopiles
