Weiler Engineering Corporation provided complete site and structural design, permitting and construction contract administration for this 67 unit waterfront resort and 67 slip marina on Florida Bay.
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 was necessary to fill in part of the existing canals to construct the homes and to develop a solution to revive the remaining DEAD canals. WEC prepared plans and specifications to permit the means and methods necessary to rejuvenate the seagrass and benthic communities throughout the canal system and prepared the design and specifications necessary to build a number of the high end homes on top of nearly 35 feet of fill used to shorten the canals utilizing a combination of sheet piles, auger piles and grade beams.
Other design requirements unique to this project include upgrade of an existing wastewater treatment plant to 2010 BAT standards and construction of a complex underground stormwater retention area to provide necessary treatment prior to discharge to the aquatic preserve. Also; WEC worked with the local fire department to provide fire protection to the dock areas utilizing a dry line standpipe system as the density and the unique shape of the property precluded adequate access for fire protection vehicles to the docks.
