Coastal Science & Engineering

Neel-Schaffer employs a highly qualified team of professionals skilled in a variety of coastal science and engineering disciplines. This multi-disciplinary approach allows for a more holistic blend of experience and services to meet every client’s coastal needs.

A local presence ensures our work is informed and coordinated with the issues, governance, and opportunities unique to that region. As a result, we have been able to form effective partnerships with government agencies, non-profits, and other private companies, administering coastal initiatives to meet their needs and those of coastal communities.

Our 12 strategically positioned coastal offices include: Houston, TX; Lafayette, Baton Rouge, Mandeville, and New Orleans in Louisiana; Bay St. Louis, Gulfport, Biloxi, and Pascagoula in Mississippi; Mobile, AL; and Maitland and Melbourne in Florida.

We continue to seek opportunities to develop innovative partnerships, and to effectively develop forward-thinking ideas that help create and maintain a resilient Gulf Coast.
