The Challenge

Holiday Inn Express, located in the city of Punta Gorda, challenged the Exceptional Engineering Project Management team with the task of designing an aesthetically pleasing and easily accessible 4 story hotel that coordinated its ingress and egress with the Jones Loop Road exit of I-75 with all appropriate drainage secure. Although a more moderately sized “Express” in the Holiday Inn family of hotels, the developer wanted to feature all the amenities available in a larger hotel, and also afford all guests of the 100 rooms ample and accessible parking with an attractive landscape design to create an oasis for the weary traveler leaving the offramp of the proximate highway.

The Solution & Result

Comprehensive Site Planning, Zoning, and Construction Observation/Inspections

Exceptional Engineering secured the master planning and site plan design and completed the infrastructure design, integration, and concurrency satisfaction for a secure, well-proportioned site. The site, stormwater, drainage, and utility design and permitting were also led and finalized by the firm with the requisite construction documents and final certifications met via submittals to the City of Punta Gorda Utility Permitting, Charlotte County site permitting, and SouthWest Florida Water Management District’s water management permitting. Traffic engineering was also needed to observe vehicular compliances with proximity to I-75, and Exceptional Engineering liaised with the appropriate municipal department following building and drainage codes. EEI truly became the one-stop-shop for all needs on this construction build.

Now when exiting Punta Gorda’s, Jones Loop Road exit off I-75, viewable to visitors and locals alike, is the newly constructed and beautifully architected Holiday Inn Express, located on a well-positioned 2.57-acre site. The site was designed to afford a great vantage and access from the highway to this four-story, 100 room hotel, which features all the amenities one would expect; a large pool, ample parking, and code-compliant utilities, with beautiful landscaping.
