As we know in the very lucrative business of marine construction, there are many different facets of this industry that require unique knowledge and expertise. Common marine construction projects include submarine cable installation and repair, bridge construction, and dock construction. Marine construction may also include the erection of coastal structures such as seawalls and submarine tunnels, off-shore structures such as mooring systems and artificial islands, and deep ocean structures such as cofferdams and underwater mining platforms.
Just as with general construction projects, marine construction raises typical issues of contract negotiation and interpretation, supply chain and delay disputes, payment disputes, and defective construction claims. Marine construction also contemplates unique permitting requirements and regulations, local, state, and federal, depending upon the particular body of water involved.
