We can provide 2D and 3D-modelling and engineering support for all types of marine and offshore projects including concept engineering solutions for various types of ships and offshore structures. Members of the current design team are also experienced in the utilisation of state-of-the-art modelling techniques and drafting of all types of shipbuilding specifications whilst our project management teams have extensive experience in shipbuilding and offshore oil & gas construction projects.
The engineering group is currently engaged on the finalisation of design engineering and operational development of the worlds largest proposed offshore construction, decommissioning and pipelay vessel the ‘Pieter Schelte’ as well as design support for the thrusters upgrade conversion on the Allseas pipelay vessel ‘Audacia’.

Office Accommodation (Rental Units) and Storage
We continue to operate out of the large office facility comprising of over 50,000 square feet of floor space located over 5 floors which is part of the former Swan Hunter shipyard at Wallsend that is now owned by North Tyneside Council and One NorthEast who eventually intend to redevelop the site. Until their development plans are finalised and enacted, on their behalf we can arrange to offer fully serviced self contained office accommodation subdivided into units from approx. 2,500 sq. ft. to over 6,500 sq. ft. or multiples thereof on a monthly or yearly rental basis.
Located in a riverside setting only minutes from the Wallsend Metro station and Wallsend High Street, the facilities provide ample parking spaces and include full service support such as security, heating, lighting, etc. and can extend to include computer networking possibilities if required. Current occupiers include engineering & management companies, film companies and production companies. Please contact us for further information regarding availability and cost.
The Wallsend site extends to approx. 40 acres and affords very large open and covered storage possibilities. The open storage basically comprises of large fully concreted areas with high loading capacity. Covered areas include large underground stores with small temperature differences throughout the year.
