seaport engineering
and facilities maintenance division

The Port Everglades Department's Seaport Engineering and Facilities Maintenance Division consists of a staff of design and construction professionals, who direct the design and construction process for new and renovated Port facilities and infrastructure. The Division oversees projects that range from conceptual planning to construction completion, delivery and turnover.

Projects at Port Everglades begin with tenant or market driven needs that develop from the Port's 20-Year Master/Vision Plan, and evolve into conceptual plans and designs. Once projects are funded, the plans are typically turned over to the Port’s procured design consultants who develop construction documents for large scale projects and in house staff for small scale projects. When construction documents are ready, the project managers continue with the procurement of contractors and ultimate construction of the project. The end goal is to deliver to the Port’s tenants users a project that serves their needs in the time frames established for completion.


This Division is also responsible for tenant compliance, environmental studies, endangered species protection, water quality monitoring, environmental permitting for Port projects, developing various environmental studies, review of pending legislation as it relates to Ports on the local, state and federal level, and coordination with federal and state agencies on dredging issues. 

Seaport Engineering and Facilities Maintenance oversees the Port's participation in the Green Marine Environmental Program, which is a self-reporting and independently verified framework to first establish and then reduce the Port's environmental footprint.

goal statement

To provide strategic technical support for all seaport development, to maintain existing facilities and manage design, engineering and construction of new facilities for Port Everglades while protecting the environment within the Port jurisdictional area.
