Navigating Innovative Solutions to Sustain Vital Port Operations

TBS understands the economic impact of developing ports for industrial development. 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. ”
