Municipal Government Projects
The Weiler Engineering Corporation (WEC) provides a wide array of professional engineering services to municipalities and local governments. These include design, permitting, construction administration, operations and maintenance, and compliance monitoring/reporting for storm water management systems and facilities, wastewater collection systems and treatment plants, public parks and recreational facilities, airports, and other local government facilities. WEC also specializes in assistance in the procurement of funding from a variety of grant and loan funding sources. We are a locally owned and operated small business, with a staff that lives, works, and plays in this community. We are proud of our track record of offering hands-on comprehensive professional engineering services to the local governments we serve at a fraction of the cost of larger engineering firms.
A primary element in our business is specializing in wastewater utility engineering services which includes all phases of project management; design, permitting, construction management, administration, and operations and maintenance. Clients include local governments, commercial developments, waterfront resorts and marinas, and residential builders. WEC has been involved in all facets of wastewater management; from the development of large scale Master Plans, to the complete development of wastewater collection systems and wastewater treatment plants. Our vast experience with both vacuum and gravity systems in Southwest Florida and the Florida Keys makes us uniquely qualified to assist with any wastewater project in our demanding, yet sensitive, Florida environment. WEC also provides utility design and permitting services for commercial developments that tie in to existing utility infrastructure, as well as cost-effective stand alone package plants or custom septic systems for those projects where sewer service is not readily available.
Waterfront & Marina Design
WEC’s experience extends into in all types of waterfront development and marina design. WEC designs large and small marinas, waterfront resort communities, surface water/ stormwater management systems and associated utilities, docks, shore stabilization, new seawalls and seawall repair, mooring fields, boat ramps, boat lifts, dry dock storage, and beach and dune (design & planting plan) nourishment with an approved sand source. We pride ourselves with quality, creative design as well as the ability to stay within budget and within any client’s standards. WEC works well with all facets of the development of a resort; from environmental concerns, health & safety laws, to managing project and budget reporting.
WEC has a long standing reputation for excellence in Structural Engineering in Southwest Florida and the Florida Keys. Every hurricane season our structural work is “real world” tested, and repeatedly has stood up to devastating hurricanes while sustaining relatively minor damage. Our capabilities and experience include structural design and engineering services for leading resort developers in the Florida Keys. WEC provides structural engineering and analysis for a number of Residential Home builders; including more than 30 local builders in Charlotte, Sarasota, Desoto, and Monroe Counties. In the Commercial Development sector, WEC provides structural engineering services; including office buildings, warehouses, aircraft hangers, dry dock storage facilities, marinas, docks, and seawalls. WEC also provides bridge analysis and inspection as well as custom designs like the design of large commercial travel lifts for marinas.
FEMA Flood Studies: Letters of Map Revision (LOMR)
WEC has developed a reputation for getting map revision projects approved through FEMA, thereby reducing insurance rates for our clients. Our experienced staff has the expertise to complete the study in a timely manner and with the confidence that it will be approved by demonstrating to FEMA when the delineation line between VE (Coastal High Hazard Areas) and AE zones (from VE zone to limits of 100 year flood zone) can be moved to the benefit of the Property Owner. WEC also specializes in conditional letters of map revision where a coastal armoring structure is constructed the buffer the effects of waves generated by the 100-year event. WEC has recently designed and permitted through FEMA a rip rap armoring berm and a sheet pile wall which once constructed, will result in the properties being relocated from a VE zone to an AE zone.
WEC’s Engineers provide extensive expertise across a broad range of Land Development to include municipal, commercial, industrial, residential and recreational land development projects. Land development activities in Florida require a thorough knowledge of regional specific geography and environmental factors, as well as local government land development regulations. WEC has intimate knowledge of State of Florida statutes, regulatory agency rules, and Federal laws related to the wetlands, environmental protection, and endangered species. All these factors must be considered to ensure that our clients’ goals are attained, while at the same time creating communities and industrial facilities that promote responsible growth for the City of Punta Gorda and the State of Florida.
WEC has provided a wide range of engineering, permitting, and monitoring services to the mining industry since 1993. Excavations for mining typically involve a complex array of disciplines, including geotechnical engineering, transportation infrastructure engineering, material cleaning and processing, water use, water management, environmental quality compliance, natural resources assessment and mitigation, land reclamation, and public relations. WEC is uniquely qualified to provide services to the mining industry, with a proven track record of success in all of these disciplines. Services we continue to provide for our clients are: Site selection, Due diligence, Geotechnical evaluation of material reserves, Design and permitting of the excavation, Roadway improvements, Mine reclamation, Post-mining land use, and On-going mine monitoring with regulatory compliance reporting. WEC has successful experience in leading projects through the permitting process with federal, state and local government agencies, as well as throughout the public hearing process.
GIS And Mapping
Customers of WEC benefit from our ability to seamlessly integrate the latest in Geographic Information Systems (GIS), Internet GIS & Mapping, Global Positioning Systems (GPS), and Remote Sensing (RS) technologies. Using these capabilities, we are able to coordinate our customers’ site specific project plans, asset management, and integrate the most current map data that is available from the County, WMD, FDEP, FDOT, USGS, EPA, FEMA, and others. This process allows us to identify potential engineering design and/or permitting problems in the early stages of a project so they can be resolved cost-effectively, thus saving time and money for the client. WEC offers a full range of GIS and GPS services including project consulting, geospatial data collection, geo-database design, GIS processing and spatial analysis, application development, and web-based solutions.
Transportation Studies / Design
WEC has provided complete design services for several roadway designs and provides stormwater design for several more. In addition to design, WEC has completed several Transportation Studies, including recent ones for Orange Blossom RV in DeSoto County and one for the new Walgreen’s entrance located at the intersection of US 41 and Ortiz Boulevard in North Port. The Orange Blossom Study was reviewed and approved by DeSoto County and the North Port Study was reviewed and approve by FDOT. WEC also specializes in developing traffic impact statements and reviews traffic studies for private developments in Marathon as the City of Marathon’s engineering consultant.
