Exactly what services do Beckett Rankine provide?


What sort of installations do Beckett Rankine tackle?


We plan, design and manage the construction of marine infrastructure projects worldwide. Our projects include port and harbour structures, cargo and passenger handling facilities, dredging, land reclamation, breakwaters and coast protection works.

Our projects cover the full size range of ports from some of the World’s largest new port developments to small yacht harbours. Our experience of designing ports includes work in the most demanding locations on Earth; from ice-bound Northern Siberia to the Middle East; from hurricane-prone Caribbean Islands to the land-locked Caspian Sea; from the crowded river Thames to isolated North Korea.
