A global Approach

The challenge today is securing projects, ensuring their acceptance, and controlling their overall cost. Our approach helps to give us a fully comprehensive project vision, which allows us to provide interdisciplinary solutions, integrating technical, economic, and environmental aspects. There are three main concepts behind this approach:

  • Gathering the right expertise at the right time
  • Participative collaboration with stakeholders
  • Responding as closely as possible to clients’ and users’ needs

Our innovations

Innovation has always been at the core of our development strategy.
How do we respond effectively to emerging challenges and expectations? It is through innovation in our methods and tools that we provide our clients with solutions to their issues. We are actively involved in a number of industry networks, such as Pôle Mer Méditerranée and Pôle Mer Bretagne Atlantique and the Cluster Maritime Français. We also work in partnership with research labs like that of Blanes (Spain), the universities of Milan, Montpellier, Lille and La Rochelle, with IUEM, MNHN, Ifremer, and various marine stations (Banyuls, Roscoff, Concarneau).
