DMK Land Development Projects

Bealls Department Store #59

As part of an infill project at the existing Merchants Crossing Shopping Center in North Ft. Myers, FL, DMK was selected to provide surveying, engineering design and permitting services for the 75,000 SF Bealls Store #59.

DMK worked with Lee County and South Florida Water Management District staff to ensure the proposed development satisfied all of the existing Development of Regional Impact (DRI) requirements.

Booker High School

DMK Associates, Inc. performed overall site planning which included athletic fields, a grading and drainage design with an adiCPR model of existing and proposed conditions for entire site as well as access roads, sidewalks, and parking.  Utility work included preparation of a site plan showing exisitng and proposed sewer and water lines including fire protection, gravity sewers, force mains, lift stations and connection to the City of Sarasota water and sewer systems.  
In addition, DMK provided engineering services for the School Board of Sarasota County for the relocation and re-alignment of Orange Avenue located within the City of Sarasota.  The roadway, which has been constructed, was part of the 47 acre Booker High School demolition and rebuild.  DMK designed and permitted the new roadway, water main, fire line, sanitary sewer lines and stormwater drainage located within the new Orange Avenue right-of-way.  DMK worked with the City of Sarasota and the School Board of Sarasota County to develop a design to ensure the utilities provided uninterrupted service to the City of Sarasota and the Booker High School campus throughout the construction of the project.

 

Sarasota High School

DMK provided civil engineering services for the Sarasota High School renovations which began in 2012.  The work included site design for several areas throughout the campus including the exisiting Paul Rudolph classroom building and gym and the existing administrative building.  A new gym was constructed at the end of the exisiting courtyards and is reconfigured as a campus focal point.  At the north end of the property a new CEP plant was constructed to house the new HVAC equipment.  DMK was tasked with providing the site design, grading and stormwater drainage, floodplain compensation study and design, utility design, SWFWMD permitting and the City of Sarasota permitting throughout the project.  Additional work included micellaneous site improvements at the baseball fields, staff parking lot and building #13.

 

Redfish Key Condominium

The Redfish Key Condominium Project consisted of DMK's design, permitting and construction support services for the 35 unit complex.  The site was formerly the Mad Sam's Restaurant, also designed and permitted by DMK, giving DMK historical knowledge of this ideal location on Lemon Bay.

The Project entailed the demolition of the existing buildings, parking lot and other improvements plus the design and permitting of the new site.  The irregular shape of the parcel plus the owner's desire to maximize density posed several challenges to the DMK Design Team.  However, through innovative design and by working closely with Charlotte County Zoning staff, DMK was able to meet both Client and County goals for the project.

Services provided during the project included survey (including bathymetric), civil design, permitting and construction support.

Charlotte High School Campus Reconstruction

In August 2004, Hurricane Charley, a Category 4 hurricane, came inland at Charlotte County, destroying Punta Gorda Middle School and Charlotte High School. After the relocation of students to portable classrooms, Harvard Jolly Architects was retained to design two new schools on the 90 acre campus. This new campus would accommodate a total of 3,200 students and was developed in two phases, starting with the Middle School and continuing with the High School.

DMK Associates, Inc. performed overall site planning which included athletic fields, a field house and the football field, a grading and drainage design which included an AdICPR model of existing and proposed conditions for the entire site as well as access roads, sidewalks and parking. Utility work included preparation of site plans showing existing and proposed sewer and water lines, including fire protection, gravity sewers, force mains, lift stations and connection to the City of Punta Gorda water and sewer systems.

Permitting included an ERP to SWFWMD, water and sewer line extension permit applications to FDEP, and an application for service to the City of Punta Gorda Utilities for water and wastewater improvements.

DMK also performed Bid Phase services, MOT and Construction Administration on the project which was completed in 2009.
