Vectis consolidates advanced composite design capability

Vectis has recently completed the structural design of two new high performance and weight critical advanced composite craft thereby consolidating our in-house structural design capability in both composites and metals. These craft follow the structural design of a novel 22m high speed craft and a next-generation 8m RIB both in advanced composite materials with infused and cored structural elements. This advanced composite design capability is available to other naval architects, boat designers and boat builders.

Project Management

Government agency projects invariably require significant project management to co-ordinate and deliver the complete project. We have built up proven project management capability to support boat builders to deliver boats and supporting elements to  demanding and complex requirements.

As project manager we provide the interface between the customer and the boat builder ensuring the interests of the boat builder are protected whilst maintaining delivery to programme, quality and budget. 

This project management support can be to take complete responsibility, or to support in specific areas:

  • Project Management
  • Build Supervision
  • Owner's Representative
  • Transfer of Technology
  • Documentation
  • Warranty Management

For some projects we are asked to oversee the boat build and act as the Owner's Representative and ensure that the contractual requirements are complied with. The craft may or may not be one that we have designed, but in either case we apply our knowledge and experience to work with the boat builder to achieve an efficient project that fully meets the requirements and ensure that our client's interests are met.
