Why is heritage so important to us? We believe it’s because time-honoured traditions, buildings and landscapes help shape our social identity and provide us all with a sense of connection; to each other, to our communities, and to the past. This connection is what grounds us and gives us all a sense of direction.
Did you know that World Maritime Day has been celebrated for 36 years? In that time the importance of the maritime industry to our global economy has grown immensely, reflected by the growth of the International Maritime Organisation (IMO) from 21 member states to 170 member states.
The organisation focusses on the safety and security of shipping and the prevention of marine pollution. It places great emphasis on the ratification of maritime legislation, ensuring that conventions, treaties and codes become implemented and accepted – the theme of this year’s Maritime Day.
Our work in this sector is considered world-leading. For more than 100 years, we’ve advised clients, partners and governing bodies on some of the world’s most prestigious maritime projects, industry standards and sector innovations. We generate solid relationships wherever we operate and some of our earliest clients, like the UK’s Royal National Lifeboat Association, remain with us.
Please join us this month as we take a deeper dive into this fascinating industry and reflect upon some of its most innovative recent developments.
We’ll be looking at two potentially important joint industry programmes that seek to improve design in nearshore and offshore structures, we’ll take you on a tour of Venice’s proposed offshore terminal – a radical project designed to mitigate environmental damage and facilitate economic growth – and we’ll be updating you on progress in the world of ports, mooring and salt water prevention.
