Sandy Bottom Small Ports Project, Bahamas

Rendel was awarded an Employer’s Representative contract for the provision of specialist marine consultancy services on three new ports facilities to accommodate the new Royal Bahamas Defence Force fleet.

This contract forms part of US$200m investment by the Government of the Bahamas to upgrade ageing naval infrastructure and its fleet of small patrol vessels.

Rendel’s services will follow the three phases of the project:

  • Procurement and contract advice
  • Detailed engineering review
  • Construction supervision

Work commenced in June 2014. The detailed engineering review will largely be carried out in the London office and we will have two permanent resident engineers on site during the construction supervision phase.
Works include the construction of three small ports, sea walls, sea defences and associated infrastructure. Rendel is working in partnership with Paul E Hanna & Associates, based in Nassau, Bahamas, continuing a relationship that spans 20 years.
