Weiler Engineering Corporation has been the Civil, Utility and Structural Consultant to the Hawks Cay Resort located on Duck Key in the Florida Keys since 1997. The phased project included the design and permitting to construct nearly three hundred single-family homes with resort and waterfront amenities and a complete renovation of the five star hotel and facilities.
Engineering design services and services during construction were provided for nearly every phase of this project including site, stormwater drainage and treatment, water distribution, wastewater collection and treatment facilities, docks, seawalls, environmental permitting and structural design for all of the homes and common facilities.
The project is unique and complex as it required a subtle blend of the new single family/resort homes with the existing historic hotel and facilities as well as the sensitive environmental surroundings and a Development of Regional Impact that was created for a hotel complex and not necessarily single family homes.
Other design requirements that make this project unique include a wastewater treatment system located on an island adjacent to the resort utilizing the treated effluent for irrigation of the resort grounds.
