What if civil engineering focused on responsible solutions that work with the land? As a Hawai’i-founded organization, Oceanit understands both the cultural and engineering impacts that civil works have on our ‘āina. Civil engineering deals with large- and small-scale infrastructure planning and execution and is one of the oldest and most fundamental engineering professions.

Oceanit has practical experience and extensive technical expertise in all areas of civil engineering, ocean engineering, and coastal engineering.

Our diverse teams tackle a wide range of complex problems and deliver timely, cost-saving solutions to a diverse client base. Oceanit’s experience spans decades, and our capabilities encompass every step of the process from the initial investigation and environmental impact statements to permits and construction. Together with our robust roster of subcontractors, some of our varied civil projects have included pipe replacements, waterway analyses, and harbor improvements.

We have the capability to prepare EIS and environmental assessments for the National Environmental Policy Act as well as the State of Hawaii, Hawaii Revised Statutes Chapter 343. We frequently assist clients with federal, state, and local permits, including the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Sections 10 and 404, Department of Health 401 Water Quality Certification, U.S. Fish and Wildlife, National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System permits, Coastal Zone Management Act, Conservation District Use Permits, Special Management Area Permits, Shoreline Setback Variance, Stream Channel Alteration Permit, and Dam Safety Permits.
