CHE specialises on the protection and restoration of coastlines and the development of port and harbour infrastructure and navigation-related projects.
Hatch Mott MacDonald president and CEO Nick DeNichilo said: “The impact of Hurricane Sandy, as well as other natural events, has underscored the importance of coastal restoration and enhancing the resiliency of infrastructure at a time when the impact of weather is more and more severe and unpredictable. We are delighted to welcome Coast & Harbor to the Hatch Mott MacDonald family as part of our rapidly growing coastal engineering and ports practice.”
Hugo Bermudez, principal coastal engineer of Coast & Harbor Engineering, said: “We are excited by the opportunity to join one of the fastest-growing and most innovative engineering companies in North America. At a time when ports and coastal infrastructure are increasingly multimodal, access to the broad-based resources of HMM will make it possible for us to compete for larger and more complex projects than ever before. Our current clients should also be pleased with the greater range of expertise we can bring to bear on their challenges.”
