Designing for Daily Operations

Engineers typically focus on designing a marina to be able to survive an extreme weather event, hurricane, flood, ice, etc. But this is often in conflict with the functional and aesthetic needs of the marina. Such conflict is typical 99.9 percent of the time. This session looks at the "other" design criteria and how to develop appropriate operational criteria that result in a design that is both compatible with the marina’s daily use as well as ensuring it can survive extreme weather conditions.
