When it comes to preliminary ship design, we have the experience and imagination to translate and verify the ship owner’s vision and requirements to practical engineering constructability.

We undertake preliminary requirements analysis, concept and feasibility design assessment, PRE-FEED and FEED (Front End Engineering Design) services to confirm the technical and economical feasibility of a project, identify risk profile, and to assist define the project and engineering deliverables.

As an independent consultancy, we deliver responsive, independent, and concept-neutral advice covering preliminary ship design, design review, and commercial evaluation. We can provide initial concept drawings, outline specifications, project planning or preliminary cost estimation – rough order of magnitude (ROM) estimates.

Our preliminary design processes include basic ship hull design, stability calculations, strength, and performance analysis. Concept designs meet the needs of customers and requirements of classification societies and other Naval rules and regulations.

Our specialist naval architects and marine engineers have been involved in many new shipbuilding programs for the Royal Australian Navy and other commercial fleets, both here and overseas.

Our engineers are supported by an expert design drafting team with demonstrated ability to deliver drawings from concept design through to project delivery, using AutoCAD 2D and 3D modelling systems, including customisation, creating specifications and workflows. 

We work closely and collaboratively with ship owners and design and build prime contractors to ensure the preliminary design phase is optimised and meets customer requirements.
