Huntington-Ingalls Shipyard Revitalization

Cost & Schedule, During Design

To inform their clients’ budgeting and procurement planning, Machado/Patano Engineers retained RiverCoast to assist with the upcoming expansion at Huntington-Ingalls Shipyard in Pascagoula, MS. Using P6 in parallel to the 30/60/90 designs, RiverCoast generated progressive construction estimates with production-based durations and contract packaging options. Outcomes of this “early-contractor-involvement” effort included contract times, presentation material for owner, and less-risk along the critical path.

UAS imagery and overnight 3D-modeling

FAA licensed, our UAS imagery and overnight 3D-modeling capability can quickly inform siting decisions, stockpile inventories, and construction progress.  High-resolution (4k) aerial photography “right-sizes” data-acquisition costs to inform maintenance budgets for bridges, pipelines, railroads, water-towers, high-mast lighting, and remote environments.  Instant deployment to remote areas and real-time streaming enhance inspections and emergency response.
