Naval Architect

Job Overview

Oil and gas exploration and production occurs not only on land but also in marine environments. These near-shore and deep-water activities require specialized marine vessels and installations to conduct exploration and production of energy resources as well as supply, transport and maintenance vessels to service these marine installations. The naval architect is responsible for planning the whole building process of a vessel, and managing all aspects from the concept to the delivery of the final product.

Naval architects are charged with designing vessels that meet the requirements for which they have been commissioned and usually work closely with marine engineers to ensure that their designs will allow for the incorporation of the numerous systems that vessels require for their operation including safety, propulsion, navigation.

Naval architects prepare plans, draft design and construction blueprints, and specifications, including any special provisions leading to the concept, design and construction of marine vessels.
