The Challenge

Fucillo Kia of Port Charlotte, one of the largest car dealerships in the Charlotte county, was not the typical development. The owner wanted a full-service dealership with 45 acres of automobile dealership along with a 32-acre Commercial park adjacent to the dealership.

The owner also wanted a large entertainment area to hold promotional events. The project included comprehensive plan rezoning and site planning along with negotiations with the Florida Department of Transportation to coordinate offsite improvements and connections to US 41. Further planning involved the Florida Department of Environmental Protection to extend the water system offsite. This project included upgrades to existing utilities and a new lift station for Charlotte County’s sanitary sewer system.

The project development team faced several challenges during the development to include construction during an ongoing US41 Road Improvement Project, the addition of offsite turn lanes, design, and extension of offsite utilities including a sanitary sewer distribution and lift station design, along with negotiations with FDOT concerning an adjacent FDOT stormwater pond.

The Solution & Result

Comprehensive Site Planning, Zoning, and Construction Observation/Inspections

Exceptional Engineering’s project development team, through much diligence, was awarded approvals to meet the client’s needs by providing planning, design, permitting, and construction inspections for the development of the 45-acre car dealership and 32-acre commercial park, with full service and repair capabilities, a rental car agency, temporary customer and inventory parking areas and outdoor entertainment areas for frequent promotional events. This, in total, resulted in a 77-acre site along with a new road, that required, in addition to the associated site design, Charlotte County zoning, site plan permitting, Florida Department of Environmental Protection water and wastewater permitting, and access and drainage permitting, but now also roadway engineering that coordinated with Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT). Exceptional Engineering’s dedication and work ethic helped the client achieve his project goals on time and within budget, making the owner’s vision a reality.
