Conceptual Design

Cathie Associates has extensive experience in the preliminary design of offshore structures. We have delivered conceptual designs and feasibility studies for a significant variety of projects in the oil and gas and renewable energy market. Those projects are often associated with challenging environments, including:

  • Mudmats in very soft seabed conditions
  • Driven piles in weak rock / hard ground
  • Drag anchors in shallow rock sea beds
  • Quay walls and harbour extensions in soft ground
  • Suction caisson design
  • Pile group assessment in permafrost
  • Drilled piles in strong rock
