About Ocean Engineering, Inc.

Ocean Engineering, Inc., a full-service civil engineering consulting firm, was founded in 2011 in Miami, Florida by Walter Lugo. After over a decade of working as a consultant for a global engineering firm, Lugo realized his dream of establishing a company that offers the expertise of a large firm, combined with bespoke customer experience at an affordable price.

Now in our second decade of serving South Florida in both the private and public sectors, our satisfied clientele include architects, real estate developers, private owners, corporations, and municipalities.  We specialize in devising and implementing creative solutions for the unique drainage design challenges in South Florida. Some of the professional services we offer include design, permitting, and construction phase assistance for residential, commercial and roadway projects.

We are proud to be part of this vibrant community and have supported the development of buildings across the tri-county area from boutique hotels, to large shopping centers, from large scale luxury resorts and condominiums, to the roads you travel on every day. If you’re local, there’s a good chance you have experienced one of our carefully planned and well-designed projects. As times, circumstances, neighborhoods and building codes change, we will continue to evolve and provide the engineering services you need for your residential, commercial, or municipal project.

We specialize in devising and implementing creative solutions for the unique drainage design challenges facing South Florida. Our commitment is to provide exceptional client services and high quality design. We strive to exceed our clients’ expectations with every one of our projects both large and small.
