OUR DESIGN PHILOSOPHY

Our dedicated concept development team pulls together data from market studies, develops a deep understanding of our client’s needs, harnesses our mastery of technological advancements and our knowledge of the latest rules and shipbuilding practices to generate cutting-edge solutions for complex and multi-mission needs.

 

MARINE FIRM’S DESIGN PROCESS

First, to define the basic envelope, we use in-house tools developed specifically for vessel costing, parametric scaling, weight estimating, resistance, powering and space requirements. Next, we incorporate client specifics on relevant rules, equipment and systems to generate a first-cut solution. Then, the design spiral continues. This includes iterations, client feedback sessions, internal and external expert opinions and reviews until we find the final fit-for-purpose solution. Drawings, reports, studies and analyses come together to generate 3D visualisations for internal and external sales efforts and client approval.

To assess environmental impact requirements for many governments and offshore commercial clients, we may first develop an operational strategy to fully understand their needs. Often this process reveals critical information that was not initially given a high priority. This strategic, collaborative approach to the concept process ultimately leads to a final design. Although it may be different from the owner’s original vision, it will best meet their requirements and operations profile.

From paper sketches and two-dimensional arrangements to fully developed three-dimensional models and fly-by animations, Vard Marine takes the most relevant approach to meet a client’s needs for a new vessel or modifications to an existing asset. Depending on the level of detail required, arrangements are developed and built up in layers of ever-increasing detail, until the spacial validation exercise is complete.
