Weiler Engineering Corporation was responsible for the design, permitting and construction administration for substantial modification to this marina facility in Placida Florida.
Palm Island Marina is an 8 acre site that provides transient and long term dockage facilities, indoor dry storage units, and fueling services. WEC was contracted to permit two additional dry storage buildings (58,000 SF total) and com- plete the design of the stormwater management system in 1998. This project area had 0.44 acres of red and black mangroves on Lemon bay that required unique environ- mental consideration by WEC.
WEC has been the consultant to the marina since 1995 and has completed the engineering services for numerous phases of the marina.
The project is complex and permit intensive and required considerable coordination with multiple State and Federal regulatory agencies as well as Charlotte County, FL.
Currently, WEC is assisting the Owner with the preliminary design and permitting to expand the marina to include a mixed use community with nearly 1000 homes.
