Port Charlotte Beach Park, Event Center

DMK is currently working on the civil design for a new 20,000 sf event space, pool with associated pool house, chiller and maintenance building to be constructed on the Charlotte County Park. This project consists of ecological services, stormwater design, parking and striping, utility design, permitting and construction phase services. This project is currently in the permitting phase. 

Previous work in this project footprint includes the design of additional beach parking, pedestrian access, and improved traffic circulation by adding a new direct access drive for boat trailers, stormwater system, permitting and additional site design for native landscaping, and an outdoor events lawn capable of hosting a portable stage for live music was included in the design.

Miniature Golf Facility on Dearborn Street, Englewood

DMK is honored to be part of this project due to its local presence and stakeholders. Our part in this commercial project is the horizontal design and construction plans for the development of a miniature golf facility with associated infrastructure: Parking, striping plan, and utility connections to Englewood Water District's potable water and wastewater collection systems. Permitting for this project included municipalities and agencies such as Sarasota County, Englewood Water District, and the Southwest Florida Water Management District. We are currently in the Construction Phase, tasked with Engineer of Record duties. Progress photos to come!

Phase 2 Lakewood Ranch Stewardship District Academic Avenue & Intersections

This project is officially completed!! Photos to come soon.

 

Phase two of this project reached its pre-construction meeting in September of 2022. Phase two of this project consisted of civil design services for an intersection design and permit assistance with the Florida Department of Transportation. The intersections were located at School Avenue Spur and State Road 64 as well as School Ave. and Uihlein Parkway.

 

Phase one included the construction of four lanes of pavement with closed drainage and a median. DMK's contract included the planning and design of utilities installed during roadway construction to include a 10” water/fire line and 6” sanitary force main with associated Manatee County lift station. Our services included surveying, design, permit assistance, bid support services, limited services during construction and closeout services with both Manatee County, SWFWMD and the FDOT.

Sarasota High School Multi-Use Recreational Trail and Fence

This project is going through the final punch lists and certifications. Final photos to come soon! The Sidewalk and Multi-Use Recreational Trail was designed to enhance the existing infrastructure for pedestrian circulation around the perimeter of the high school. Design features included ADA compliance, pavement marking and shared-use bicycle lanes. FDOT permitting was necessary along US 41 for use of Right of Way (ROW) to widen the existing sidewalk to a 10-foot width.

The security fencing that DMK had designed for the high school was designed around the entire campus. During the project kick-off meeting it was important to get input from essential personnel such as the school Principal, grounds maintenance crew, athletic department, etc. This type of collaboration is essential to design a successful project. The final design included pedestrian, utility and vehicular access points. The products used for the fencing varied, depending upon location, from decorative aluminum fencing, vinyl coated chain link, to a pre-cast concrete wall (Permacast). The Permacast wall was installed along the North property line to ensure full privacy for residents and students alike. 

Morris Industrial Park, Englewood

DMK has completed many projects throughout the Morris Industrial Park located in Englewood, Florida dating back to 1990. Currently we are working on the development of two sites. One, a 9,000 sq.ft. manufacturing facility with office space and the other a 9800 sq.ft. storage building with minimal office space. The site design for these projects includes the following: Parking and striping for 15-35 spaces, Onsite Treatment and Disposal System (OSTDS), Potable water connection to Englewood Water District (EWD), Fireline sizing, Stormwater analysis and storage, and landscape plans. Other tasks within these contracts included surveying services, permitting with the County, FDEP, SWFWMD, and EWD, construction phase services including Engineer of Record tasks. These projects are in the tail end of permitting and the other is in the infancy stages of construction.

Horseshoe Cove Riverbank Stabilization

DMK is currently contracted by Horseshoe Cove RV Resort for their Riverbank Stabilization and As Built services for additional dock construction. During this project the Braden River has been dredged and its byproducts used as the material needed for the shoreline stabilization. Approximately 1,680 LF of Eco-Filter Tube has been planted with native wetland vegetation. This project also consists of the removal of 17 existing docks and the reconstruction of 10 individual docks for residents. The surveys needed for this project consisted of Transects, Wetland Line and the Mean High Water Line. DMK is also responsible for Construction Phase Services, currently underway.

Douglas Jeep, Venice

As many of you may have noticed the old concrete piping building near Center Road and US 41 is now being converted into the newest Douglas JEEP Dealership. The dealership is contracted through JE Charlotte with Cornel Christea as the superintendent.  DMK is responsible for the programming and planning, site design, permitting and construction engineering inspection services. Venice Area Beautification, Inc. (VABI) is also partaking in this project by creating an Urban Forest. Urban forests are created by using native plants and trees to restore wildlife habitat and to create a community friendly place to relax and enjoy the surroundings.  This project is still under design and permitting.
