Verandah

Johnson Engineering is assisting with permitting, zoning approvals, land planning and overall project management for this 1,456-acre mixed planned development by the Bonita Bay Group. This project includes a combination of single-family attached, single-family detached, townhouses, retail, office and extensive recreational space.

Gulf Coast Town Center

Johnson Engineering is the lead civil engineer, responsible for the planning, zoning, design and permitting and provided landscape architecture for this 1.6 million square foot outdoor center filled with over 150 specialty shops, restaurant and nationally-known tenants.

Florida Gulf Coast University

Johnson Engineering has been involved in the majority of the recent civil engineering aspects associated with the campus development including new buildings, parking garages, and recreational facilities at FGCU. Our work covers the design and permitting for all the projects, including surface water management, environmental (jurisdiction areas and protected species), roads and utilities, landscape architecture, construction inspection and agency certification.

The Forum

Johnson Engineering’s land development group has assisted the master developer of the 700-acre Forum at Fort Myers mixed-use development, as well as developers of the individual parcels, with land planning, infrastructure design, government agency permitting, and construction services on the project. Our team provided these services for Colonnade Condominiums, Cypress Legends Apartments, Target Shopping Center, Forum Centre Shops, Galleria Office Complex, Forum Corporate Office Park, Hyatt Place Hotel, Holiday Inn Express, Promise Healthcare, First Community Bank, YMCA, Champion Ring Road Extension, and Forum Boulevard Widening and Intersection Improvements.

Charlotte County Regional Parks (North, South & West)

Johnson Engineering served as the overall consultant, providing civil engineering, surveying and mapping and environmental services for three Regional Parks for the Charlotte County Parks, Recreation & Cultural Resources Department. This multiple phase project, North, South and West Park, consist of improving 65 to 175 acres of recreation fields, basketball courts, pool facilities, golf course, nature trails, pedestrian walkways and a 18,000 square foot skate park. As part of the permitting, we conducted environmental surveys and obtained an Environmental Resource Permit (ERP) with the Southwest Florida Water Management District (SWFWMD). We also permitted with the Army Corp of Engineers for a bridge portion of the nature trail that crossed over wetlands and Oyster Creek. Our surveying and mapping team conducted boundary and topographic surveys for the permitting process and the as-builts for the completion of the project.

Lee Memorial Healthpark

Johnson Engineering has been involved with the 390-acre HealthPark Florida development since it’s inception in the mid-1980’s. We authored the original DRI, permitted 83 acres of on-site lakes and permitted many of the individual parcels for construction. In addition, we provided the master plan for all roadways, drainage and utilities within HealthPark Florida. These services were provided for each of the following individual parcels: HealthPark Hospital, Cypress Cove Retirement Community, Sail Harbour Residential Community, Hope Hospice, Encore Senior Living Facility, Day Care Center, HealthPark Care Center, HealthPark Outpatient Center, HealthPark Commons Medical Offices, Village Shoppes Commercial Center, OB/GYN Physician’s Primary Care, Fifth Third Bank, Synovus Bank and all major infrastructure within HealthPark Florida.

Naples Players Theatre

Johnson Engineering provided the site, civil and drainage engineering associated with the redevelopment of Wynn’s Market, Naples Players Theatre and Naples parking garage located on 5th Avenue South and 7th Street South. This project included the development of on-site water management facilities for storage and treatment prior to discharge into the existing City of Naples backbone water management system for Basin III. This included an analysis of the piping network north of East Lake. The hydrological analysis was done to confirm this reconstruction would not overburden the existing facility and was designed so the discharge would not occur at the same time as the regional surface water peak discharge. The drainage system was successfully installed and has operated smoothly, with no reports of flooding in the parking garage, Wynn’s Market or the Naples Players Theatre. Our team, the City of Naples engineering team, and the contractor coordinated their efforts to come up with this cost effective solution.

Summerfield Square

Summerfield Square in Pasco County, was a project that featured both civil and environmental design and permitting for over 40,000 square feet of office/retail space within the nearly 18-acre green property. This project consists of several phases, in addition to laying out spacious commercial buildings and drainage ponds in cooperation with the natural environment, we also working with the Environmental Protection Commission of Hillsborough County and the Southwest Florida Water Management District. We worked closely with these agencies to provide a plan to conserve a piece of the upland property for significant wildlife habitat preservation, a protected species survey, and a wetland mitigation design plan to ensure that sound engineering worked hand-in-hand with our responsibility to preserve the environment.
