Excellence In Engineering

Engineering services are an integral part of our organization. Our engineering disciplines are comprised of municipal, civil/site, coastal, structural, and traffic engineers who streamline and expedite projects economically and efficiently. Our engineers can assist clients on projects from the early planning stages through post-construction, including operations.

Our structural engineers work closely with in-house staff and subconsultants to design structures that can withstand the rigors of a coastal environment. Our engineers promote public wellness and safety by ensuring the structural integrity of new and existing facilities.  Learn more

Coastal engineering is a specialized discipline dealing with the evaluation of wind, tide levels, currents and waves and their impact on protected and unprotected shorelines, marinas, and harbors. These forces can be extremely destructive and can inflict significant damage. DBF is uniquely qualified to provide these services based on numerous years of practical experience using state-of-the-art design. These tools enable our firm to evaluate the complex interactions of coastal influences, and to design functional and cost-effective projects that protect from these challenges. Learn more
