Port Sutton Dock and Shiploader



Our technical experts set the standards in many industries. From single discipline consultation to multi-discipline design, we create solutions for projects of any size. With our deep experience, we’ve found that no two clients are alike.  Our staff of licensed engineers and skilled designers produces detailed designs based on your organization’s standards and preferences.

Matrix PDM Engineering acquired River Consulting which was originally founded to serve the industry’s moving materials in the Gulf region. Through this experience, we have worked closely with our clients to address the challenges of building, owning, and operating docks and the equipment used on them to load and unload vessels.  We have three decades of experience in delivering complete solutions to our clients including designing, investigating and managing the construction of all types of marine structures.

Matrix PDM is no stranger to the issues associated with constructing marine projects.  We recognize the need to manage the permitting phase with close coordination with Army Corps of Engineers, State DOT, Levy District, State EPA, Coast Guard, and Pilot’s Associations. We know the scheduling difficulties presented by changing water levels, seasonal and weather based construction windows, environmental impact and restrictions, and in-water work windows.

Our engineers understand that the design of marine structures are driven by many factors. Careful consideration needs to be given to all of the loads and environmental factors that affect the structure. Although docks and marine structures appear simple, they need to withstand harsh environments and can be expensive to construct.  We understand the factors that drive construction cost and work with clients and contractors through all phases of design to develop structures that can meet the operational requirements for the facility while at the same time fitting within the economic constraints of the project.
