About Us

Nativetec was formed by Robert E. Marini in 1989 with the intention of providing comprehensive environmental science, civil engineering, urban design, planning, surveying, landscape architecture, and architectural services for the issuance of local approvals and more importantly for achieving holistic design solutions.

Our offices are located in Lynn, Massachusetts and Ft. Myers, Florida with full time staff in both locations. Here we pursue the role of a design and environmental planning contributor nationwide. We coordinate those disciplines relevant to providing our clients with their desired results. Being Adaptable to all geographic regions, we shall engage both public and private concerns. Always committed to public health, safety, and welfare, while at the same time accentuating the aesthetic values of the design with the environment and history of the place to ensure that your project will endure the social and physical impacts of time.

Robert E. Marini

From 1989 to present as principal of Nativetec, Mr. Marini designed and advised on the construction of landscape architectural projects throughout Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and Florida. Representative projects include: preparing construction documents for the War Memorial known as Weymouth Civic Center, the Brighton Streetscape project, and Caloosahatchee Regional Park in Lee County, Florida, and wetland restoration in Plaistow, NH. In all his projects he met with the community to arrive at a compatible solution with clients and the community. As a wetland scientist he identifies wetland areas and prescribes approaches to restoration. Wildlife habitats and species population assessments have been regularly identified by him and his staff in the creation of indigenous preserve areas.

He received a merit award from the BSLA in 2000 for wetland restoration in Plaistow, NH. He was the first licensed mangrove trimming specialist licensed in the City of Sanibel in 1995 and continues to oversee Mangrove protection as dictated within Florida and by the DEP, Army Corps of Engineers (ACOE), and South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD).
