Minder & Associates Engineering Corporation (M&A) recently completed all of the surveying, civil engineering design and construction administration for the 1.58 acre project located at the southeast corner of Gulf Gate Drive and U. S. 41 in unincorporated Sarasota County, Florida.
The project consisted of first doing the boundary survey, location of the existing bank building, topographic features and tree location. Our client for this project was an architectural firm with offices in Tulsa, Oklahoma and Atlanta, Georgia. Because of the geographic location of our client, M&A handled all of the coordination with Sarasota County to obtain the demolition permit for the bank building from Sarasota County.
After obtaining the necessary survey field information, our firm working with our client and Longhorn Steakhouse representatives prepared the preliminary site plan, which was reviewed and approved by the Sarasota County Development Review Board.
Since the project was in an area of Sarasota County, which had been constructed some 25 years ago, the project was required by the County to meet all of the standards and requirements of the new Sarasota County Land Development Regulations. In order to meet the storm water management requirements of the Sarasota County Land Development Regulations an additional parcel of land to south of the existing site had to be acquired. M&A did the boundary survey, topographic survey and the tree survey on this additional site and then combined the two parcels into one large parcel and rewrote the legal descriptions.
M&A then did all of the civil engineering design and obtain approval from the twelve regulatory divisions in the land development business centers of Sarasota County Government. We then prepared and submit the engineering storm water management plan design to the Southwest Florida Water Management District for their review and approval.
After completion and approval of the engineering design M&A provided construction administration for the project, prepared as built drawings and obtained final approval from Sarasota County Government and the Southwest Florida Water Management District.
