About Us

Our experience includes more than 25 years of actual heavy and marine construction concurrently with more than 50 years of engineering, which gives us the knowledge of what can be built economically to solve the problem.
We have worked on projects all over Florida, and in the Bahamas, as subconsultants on marine structures. Our clients include private residents, condominiums, realtors, developers, commercial and residential contractors, heavy marine contractors, public utilities, and agencies, as well as engineering firms (as a marine subconsultant), yacht clubs, port facilities, and permitting firms.


Our philosophy is to be honest and tell it like it is so the clients understand what they are dealing with, and how we will approach the design phase. Depending on the size of the project, we can offer preparation of the bid package, plans, specifications, scope of work & bid quotation sheet for contractors' bidding and construction oversight.
