New Zealand coastal land-forms vary greatly between the North and South Island

New Zealand is situated in the middle of two very different bodies of water – the mighty Pacific Ocean and the Tasman Sea. Between the North and South Island of New Zealand is the Cook Straight which coupled with a tidal race and the Roaring Forties wind can be very rough indeed. As a consequence of all this, the New Zealand coastline can be subject to severe water conditions, and lots of erosion and landslip problems.


Our LDE coastal engineers can provide you with an assessment for your coastal project using their experience and knowledge about coastal water behaviour. From alleviating coastal road erosion, to the strengthening of marine structures such as wharves and jetties, we can provide a solution that will stand up well against the force of the sea.
