About AE Dynamics

AE Dynamics

A Brief History

AE Dynamics was founded in 2012 by principals Scott Higinbotham and Chris Cerminara.  Since becoming close friends at Penn State in 1997, Chris and Scott formed their first working relationship in 2007, when they teamed up on their first engineered window project.  They continued to work together on a contractual basis until 2012, when they implemented their plan to create a company that would draw on their professional experience and expertise.

AE Dynamics now works with international, federal, local, and private clients throughout the United States and the world.  Our unique understanding of the building envelope and how it interacts with the building structure sets us apart from other structural engineering firms.

AE Dynamics’ clients also benefit from our firm belief that the structure is not an isolated system within a given project.  The principals of the firm are trained and experienced not only in structural engineering, but in all major disciplines of building design and construction.  This broad understanding of the built environment allows us to adapt our designs in unique ways to work with the architecture and other building systems in order to create a truly cohesive and coordinated design.

AE Dynamics’ believes that our unique combination of specialties within the field of structural engineering allows us to provide a superior and responsive approach to our work.

We maintain a strong focus on the clients whom we serve and a passion for the profession in which we practice.
