Full civil site design services included preparation of construction documents depicting demolition, geometry, pavement section design and striping, grading, drainage, storm water management system design, erosion control, potable/fire water design, sanitary sewer design, and related details of the work to be performed. 

The engineering and design of the storm water management system included the preparation of calculations and drawings required to meet the regulatory requirements of Hillsborough County Development Services, the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT), and the Southwest Florida Water Management District (SWFWMD). 

In addition to the design of the traditional storm water management system, the project included floodplain impact quantification and floodplain compensation/mitigation design and permitting. The utility systems included the design and permitting of domestic water and sanitary sewer extensions within an FDOT right-of-way to serve the subject property. 

These systems consist of 710 linear feet of low-pressure sanitary sewer force main, an on-site lift station, 1,050 linear feet of water main, and removal of an existing 4" water line, along with the reconnection of existing service connection to the new water main.

Permitting services for this project included submittal of plans, calculations, specifications, applications, and securing approval from the following agencies:  Hillsborough County Development Services, SWFWMD, FDOT, Florida Department of Environmental Protection, and the Hillsborough County Department of Health.
