Civil works in a marine environment are usually large and expensive. Each project has it's own characteristics which results in the fact that without experience and specific knowledge in the field of dredging and marine works, no realistic estimate of the costs of a project can be derived. The comprehensive knowledge of the partners of Blue Pelican Associates related to construction methods and planning, makes it possible to make a solid estimate of the costs of a project. A realistic estimate of the costs results in a stronger position during contract and price negotiations. This way the employer has detailed insight in costs to be expected for the realisation of the project.
