What Our Clients Say About Partnering With Us


I am pleased to take this opportunity to recommend Applied Technology and Management, Inc. My experience with Sam Phlegar and staff goes back over two decades during the multi-phased redevelopment of the City of Charleston owned City Marina. As Principal of the redevelopment group, we retained ATM to support us in numerous marine engineering endeavors. I can wholeheartedly recommend ATM a very effective and professional engineering firm and as proven experts in lowcountry marine engineering.

Robert L. Freeman, Managing PartnerThe City Marina Company

The Town of Mount Pleasant hired ATM to complete various assignments over the last twenty years, including the recent Crab Bank Sedimentation Study, a project designed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. ATM's comprehensive study resulted in the Town providing substantive comments to USACE. Negotiations continue to further ameliorate impacts using ATM's work as the foundation for discussion. It is my pleasure to serve as a reference for Applied Technology & Management, Inc.'s work on this study and to elaborate on our positive working experience with the firm.
