Weiler Engineering Corporation is responsible for the design of this 5.4 acre waterfront resort community in Marathon, Florida. WEC provided complete site and structural design, permitting and construction contract administration for this 25 unit waterfront marina resort and 89 slip marina and 47,000 square foot dry storage facility and marina store 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, seawalls, docks and common facilities. The project is unique and complex as it was necessary to utilize a compact site while maintaining the unique character of the marina and to preserve the existing canals and access to the marina. It was necessary to completely restore all of the existing seawalls, boatwell and docks as well as construct new structures in some areas and expand the docking facilities to enhance flushing and water quality through the marina. The project also included the design and permitting to enhance the channel access from Bone Fish Harbor.
Other design requirements unique to this project include upgrade of an existing wastewater treatment facility 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.
