Marino Engineering Associates, Inc. specializes in geotechnical and civil engineering research, training, forensic investigations and design in geotechnical and pavement engineering. Founded in 1980, by Dr. Gennaro G. Marino, P.E., D.GE the company became Marino Engineering Associates, Inc. (MEA) in 1997. Our highly qualified scientific and technical staff work together seamlessly to produce superior, on-time results for each client regardless of the project size. MEA's focus is to provide the highest standard of service and response to complex, challenging and unique projects.
Gennaro G. Marino, Ph.D., P.E., D.GE is the president and principal engineer of MEA. He has been practicing geotechnical engineering since 1973, starting as a staff engineer, graduating to a project engineer, founded MEA, and now is one of the nation’s top expert consultants on more difficult geotechnical-related engineering projects. In addition, Dr. Marino has given expert testimony on numerous occasions within his range of engineering experience. As an educator, Dr. Marino has written and delivered technical training programs. Also during the course of his career he has authored over 100 articles and research publications on advanced engineering projects and authored a textbook: Earthquake Damage: Inspection, Evaluation, and Repair.
See Awards and Honors for more information about Dr. Marino.
Dr. Marino currently holds Professional Engineering Licenses in 25 states in addition to national accreditation. He is a long-standing member of the Society of Mining Engineers (SME), the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM), and the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE).
Over the past 43 years, Dr. Marino has performed and supervised subsurface investigations as well as field and laboratory testing on soils and rocks as a practicing engineer and researcher. As a geotechnical and forensic engineer, Dr. Marino has worked on a variety of engineering projects involving earthwork including site development, foundation investigations, slope stability, retaining wall systems, soil stabilization, foundation repair, performance of pavements and subgrade conditions, and soil compaction and its associated properties.
Project focus also includes: seepage and impoundment failures, subsidence/settlement damage, ground movement, soil-structure interaction, as well as other soil mechanics and foundation problems. Forensic and engineering projects in rock include: stability and support of underground workings in salt, coal, and hard rock; grouting; rock excavation behavior and difficulty; subsidence engineering; and seepage in rock.
