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.
