Beach Creation & Management

Home > Services > Coastal Engineering > Beach Creation & Management

Beaches in many coastal areas are one of the main attractions and in coastal areas with rocky shoreline, the addition of a beach can make an area considerably more attractive and valuable.

The construction or management of a beach can be a significant investment, so it is essential that a sustainable plan is employed. The potential consequences of a non-stable beach design are rapid loss of material as well as inland damage resulting from the erosion of this important buffer between ocean and upland development.

Cummins | Cederberg engineering staff includes leading experts in the design of beaches, which are both functional and creative. To design a stable beach, extensive knowledge about sediment transport, currents and waves are required. In some cases advanced numerical models are utilized to simulate the coastal processes as part of the beach design.
