Coastal Technology Corporation (Coastal Tech) was founded in November 1984 as a Florida corporation and has been continuously engaged since that time in providing Coastal Engineering services including planning and design, Coastal Geology services, Numerical Modeling services, Environmental and Permitting services, and Construction Administration services.

Coastal Tech has also provided professional services to successfully develop and implement beach and inlet management plans including assisting clients in obtaining local, state and federal support and funding. Coastal Tech has provided professional services to both private and public-sector clients and our success is attributable to the technical quality of our work products and a “service orientation” in our approach to our clients.

Coastal Tech’s main office has been located in Vero Beach since 1984. Coastal Tech’s Vice President and Principal Coastal Engineer, Charles “Tem” Fontaine, P.E., has over 16 years of coastal engineering and management experience for public and private sector clients; he has broad experience in the entire project life cycle for beach nourishment, dredging, and coastal infrastructure projects. Coastal Tech’s Quality Assurance Officer, Michael Walther, P.E., has been actively engaged in the development of regional beach and coastal resource management plans throughout the U.S. for over 42 years.

Amelia W. Fontaine, P.E., CFM has assumed the duties of President of Coastal Tech effective March 1, 2024. She brings her Civil & Water Resources practice with over 18 years expertise in Florida site development, drainage and stormwater management. Combining the coastal planning and engineering capabilities of Coastal Tech with her site civil/ water resources planning and design capabilities provides a team with even greater strengths to successfully meet the diverse coastal and environmental needs of Florida.

The Coastal Tech (Coastal Technology Corporation) staff was assembled with the goal of providing the multi-disciplinary staff of engineers, hydrologists, modelers, planners, biologists, economists and landscape architects to complement and support the capabilities of large Federal and State Water Resource agencies. That effort has proved to be highly successful, with the completion of more than 200 Services-Type contracts for Florida Department of Environmental Protection (DEP), the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the Texas General Land Office, the Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority of Louisiana, other public agencies, and municipal and private-sector clients.
