The CMS Group | Coastal, inshore and islandwide

We've spoken previously, of the fragility of our island coasts and the significant instability caused by poor, environmental management, combined with global warming.  CMDB’s coastal and marine engineering skills bring relief and optimism to this seemingly perpetual and costly erosion.

The condition inland is no less significant.

Island real estate is forever at a premium, regardless of its topography.  Sadly the dramatic nature of the coast with imminent potential for natural disaster, is no less far reaching as the loss of land through instability and poor engineering practices.  

Land slips, undermining, heavy rains, river blockage, poor drainage issues and limited understanding of ‘knock on’ effects of construction practices, have destabilised and rerouted natural water flow and soil, causing many problematic and expensive issues. 

Our human indifference to future planning, often supplements nature’s increasing storm weather; a recipe for long term disaster.

CMSCS continues to effectively re-secure land and foundation works in many areas of the Caribbean, where soil instability and super saturation are major drawbacks to construction projects large and small.

We are foundation specialists, creating reliable and durable anchors in unstable environments, using combinations of traditional timber, vinyl sheet and Ductile Iron Piling.

In doing so, we bring extensive planning, engineering and site installation experience, significantly reducing cost, construction time and staffing requirements, which meet or surpass necessary COVID-19 site protocols.

As a potential client developer, or construction professional, CMDB and CMSCS have proven construction and engineering success throughout the Caribbean and are willing to share new technology and techniques, to vastly improve the quality of regional building.

The CMS Group specialise in marine, coastal and inland engineering and construction, using detailed planning and better science, to bring durable solutions to the age old island problems of erosion and affordability.

Our regional partnerships now enable us to deliver large cargo, with excellent marine access and dredging capabilities, throughout the islands, while continuing to protect and improve our shores, waterways and complex building environments.
