Industrial Facility Engineering
With a 30 year history supporting US military installations, we understand of the needs of industrial mechanical and electrical engineering design. At Art Anderson Associates, we deliver engineering and design solutions tailored for renovation, modernization, repair and new construction of industrial commercial and military facilities utilizing traditional, design-build and design-bid-build project delivery methods.
Our personnel have extensive technical and practical experience in support of construction management projects. We apply a disciplined, systematic approach and have successfully managed construction for the federal government, municipalities, school districts, port districts, housing authorities and private owners. These services have ranged from pre-design through full third-party construction management. Our work includes building evaluation reports, prospectus development studies, design/constructability reviews, value engineering analyses and pre-construction conferences through final punch list and commissioning services.
Naval Architecture & Marine Engineering
Our broad range of naval architecture and marine engineering services means we can support your vessel from concept to sea-trial. With over 58 years of experience helping operators design and refurbish vessels, we have become leaders in understanding regulatory requirements, hull form analysis and design, trim and stability, service life extensions and meeting client needs. Art Anderson Associates extends this knowledge beyond traditional ships and boats to provide naval architecture and marine engineering services for fuel floats, barges, ferry terminals, dry dock caissons, floating bridges and floating breakwaters.
Vessel Design & Refurbishment
As industry leaders in marine structural analysis, Art Anderson Associates designs workboats, ferries, military crafts and barges. But when the life of a ship is measured in decades, success in a vessel program comes in maintaining a vessel’s mission effectiveness throughout its service life.
Our naval architecture/marine engineering practice emphasizes working within an existing ship envelope to deliver clients superior value throughout the life cycle of their vessel investment. Engine replacement and repowering, space modifications, HVAC and mechanical systems upgrades and electronic and computer system installations are just some of the types of vessel renovation projects we like to take on.
Our heavy marine civil engineers focus their practice on near-shore engineering. This practice includes fixed and floating piers, recreational facilities, transportation facilities, harbor protection, and working waterfronts such as boatyards, dry docks, and other heavy industrial shoreline projects. The nature of these projects makes them universally sensitive with respect to environmental issues and potential impacts. Our team, to be successful in engineering waterfront structures, has developed a very strong knowledge and capability with project mitigation efforts that are high value to our clients.
The naval architecture and marine engineering professions aren’t just for powered vessels. Art Anderson Associates is an industry leader in applying the lessons of the profession to floating facilities and structures. Barges and other floating structures often require unique engineering to serve a specialized need. Our combination of marine and shore side expertise brings unique value to these projects. Our naval architects and marine engineers address issues of trim and stability, structural design, marine mechanical systems, and applicable marine regulatory body standards. Our facilities architects and engineers tackle issues of access and moorage, uplands site development and utility connections, and applicable shoreline and land-based development codes, standards and regulations. Working as an integrated team through many projects, we offer a highly-integrated, collaborative environment that can address the variety of unique challenges that face non-powered floating infrastructure projects.
Vessel Construction Management
We work hard to represent the interests of our client, whether it is an owner or boat builder, to ensure a successful project outcome for all stakeholders. We understand the design and we understand the construction process assisting our clients from pre-bid to post construction. Our defined project management and quality control process ensure your design is built as intended.
