American Marine Engineering, Inc., is an American & Veteran owned professional engineering firm located in southeast Florida, specializing in the coastal and marine environment. American Marine Engineering (AME) was founded by a group of professional engineers from multi disciplines in Civil, Marine, Naval Arch, Geo and Structural backgrounds.  With Independent Certified Lab Testing, we have steadily grown to a full service coastal and marine engineering practice that can lead projects from start to finish with the proven ability to ‘turn key’ your project.

The AME team of engineers and marine scientists provides unique comprehensive experience ranging from initial field investigations, such as bathymetric surveying, tide/current/wave measurements, underwater structural inspections, environmental assessments, and soil borings, to detailed analyses utilizing complex computer models and the engineering design and permitting of coastal dredge and fill projects, marine structures, seawalls, marinas and ports. In addition, AME provides experience in contract negotiations and construction administration. This unique combination of skills allows the firm to approach projects holistically with an exceptional understanding of function and feasibility, as well as overall construction cost.
