Underwater Inspection

GBA specializes in underwater inspections using a range of cutting-edge technologies and industry-certified expertise, giving you access to a complete range of underwater solutions for just about every type of infrastructure.

Specialized underwater expertise

Structures that feature marine components are exposed to a much more varied set of risks than those that are not underwater. For this reason, it is critical to ensure the engineering team you choose is qualified to work under these unique conditions.

Unparalleled underwater experience

Our divers are highly trained structural engineers and engineering technicians, ensuring that the solutions we bring to the table are well-qualified and based on our collective decades of experience in the field. Our extensive experience with state and federal safety regulations as well as our commitment to sustainable practices ensures you of a cost-effective process from end-to-end.

Carefully planned. Meticulously executed.

We provide our clients with a complete package of underwater engineering and inspection services that includes both above and below water assessment and rehabilitation.

Each underwater inspection is carefully planned and carried out according to the very specific requirements of the job. No matter what the complexity of the inspection might be, we can deploy quickly with the right solution for the situation.

When it is feasible to do so, we use equipment like underwater cameras, video cameras and sonar. These precision tools help us deliver accurate results that leave nothing to chance and allow us to go far beyond what our divers would be able to humanly accomplish, whether due to water depth or other dangerous conditions.
