Jorge Gutiérrez Martínez, our Global Head of Engineering, is presenting at the 37th International Conference on Coastal Engineering (ICCE). The event happens biennially, and will take place in Sydney, Australia this December. The ICCE brings together coastal engineers, academics, researchers, around a central theme; the conference’s focus this year is the Present State of the Art and Science of Coastal Engineering. 

Jorge will be presenting on ECOncrete’s innovative single layer coastal protection unit, the Coastalock. The Coastalock is part of a new trend within the industry to advance designs that provide both structural and ecological value. Historically, there have been no, or relatively small, ecological considerations when designing and building coastal infrastructure. He will share results from the 2D physical model tests conducted at the Technische Universiteit Delft (TU Delft). 

Learn more about the nature based design in his talk on December 9th at 10:20: “Physical Evaluation of the Hydrodynamic Stability of an Eco-engineered Armouring Unit.”
