Our Practices

Our Professional Practices

We offer customized solutions focused in three Practices.

Rapid wetland loss and the increased frequency of flooding threaten the existence of our coastal communities. As industry leaders, TBS provides solutions that balance the need for coastal restoration and flood protection. Both strategies are vital to enhancing and securing coastal shorelines to protect communities within them. Our project team brings an urgency to these efforts with integrated project plans that are designed to expedite regulatory coordination and to develop and restore ecosystems.

Increased trade, capacities, and channels lead to larger vessel size and deeper ports. Updating old facilities and building new infrastructure requires information on site conditions, environmental impacts, and historical changes. TBS provides integrated services for design, permitting, construction, dredging, vessel transit, beneficial use, and monitoring at ports along the Gulf Coast.

Customer Satisfaction

We let our customers speak for us

“ As a Landman, I have worked on projects with T Baker Smith for many years. I continue to utilize their services because they are professional, trustworthy and assist me, the client, in finding the most efficient resolution for varying types of challenges whether it’s surveying or permitting. ”

Carol M. Sledge, CPL
“ What keeps me coming back to T. Baker Smith is the dedication that Kenny and his team exhibits every day; it is one of the most valuable things to me. I cannot recall one time TBS did not follow through on getting what we asked for. You get what you pay for, and with TBS, we do not have to sit and babysit or redo the work. ”
Craig Guidry

“ We have worked previously with other consultants and find that TBS’ reliability and capability are superior to their competition. They are always available to assist us at Rebecca, Magnolia, Coulon, Acadia, St. Bridget and Evergreen Plantations as well as the Bayou Lafourche Freshwater Reintroduction project, by providing surveying and modeling support. ”
