In a highly competitive era of shipbuilding, the advent of contemporary design tools in the industry was at halt a decade ago. The demand for optimization of designs and adoption of the use of 3D model in earlier stages of design was at its peak. In addition, there was great dissatisfaction amongst the clients with overlapping of traditional design stages and the budget issues faced by them. Having several years of experience in the field of ship designing, Prasad P Sawant comprehended the dire needs of the clients and incorporated Buoyancy Consultants in May 2013. The company is bolstered by a core team of Marine professionals with engineering experience of design on various 3D modelling platforms.
The company has firmly laid its foundation in the ship designing industry and thrives to deliver design services, from project specification and concept studies to detailed engineering and new building supervision. Clients receive world class services from Buoyancy Consultants, making use of the latest technology available and the vast talent pool comprising experts in the industry. Along with design services, the company renders a full range of offshore engineering services to its clients covering new build designs via class drawings and detail design. In addition, the company provides a boat design and project management service which includes preparation of ship-building contract, monitoring of finances during construction, delivery protocols and related documents and post-delivery and guarantee matters. The dearth of solid infrastructure and the challenge to prove itself in the competitive industry became a major roadblock for the company.
