Design Appraisal

Design Appraisal.

Improved performance at the design stage.

Our design appraisal teams can help you streamline the design and construction process, increasing your confidence in your ship's performance in the future.

Through design appraisal we identify critical areas for construction and through-life maintenance. But we offer far more than compliance alone - using state-of-the-art analysis tools, such as ShipRight and RulesCalc, we help to ensure that your design incorporates the very highest standards of safety, quality and reliability.

Supporting services

We also carry out type approval, providing independent third-party verification of a product's conformity with specific standards or statutory requirements, and our environmental services can help you to demonstrate a clear commitment to the environment and its protection.
