Gujarati Samaj Hindu Temple
Blackhawk Engineering developed the site plan, as well as designed and permitted the Gujarati Samaj Hindu Temple in Tallahassee, Florida.
The project was designed to avoid impacts to the Lake Lafayette flood plain, which extends over much of the property. FDOT driveway and utility permits were required, and included widening a median cut and addition of a turn lane on Apalachee Parkway.
During construction, due to changes in the building concept, BHE was asked to design a water main extension to the site. We produced a set of plans on a short time schedule, and obtained the DEP permit within a matter of months. Construction of the water main was completed shortly thereafter.
Animal Aid Foundation
Spay and Neuter Clinic
This project consisted of an addition to the Animal Aid Foundation Spay and Neuter Clinic in Tallahassee to provide them with much-needed space for the good work they do.
Blackhawk Engineering assisted the Foundation in laying out the site and navigating through the City permitting process
Delta Tau Delta House
Blackhawk Engineering, Inc. performed a site observation of the Delta Tau Delta fraternity house, an 1890s building on the campus of Florida State University. We were asked to look at the damage to the structure that has occurred from water seepage, insect infestation, excessive loads, fire damage, and any other issues that could affect the structural integrity.
BHE prepared a 60-page report summarizing the deficiencies found in the building, and making recommendations for the repair of those deficiencies.
St. George Island Plantation
Blackhawk Engineering provides continuing engineering services for the St. George Plantation, a private community located on St. George Island, Florida.
The St. George Plantation Owners' Association (SGPOA) is responsible for the upkeep and maintenance of facilities in the Plantation, including the five-mile main road, a private runway, and miles of additional access roads. The SGPOA recently completed a repaving project, including the runway, as well as an extension of the bike path.
Honey Lake Plantation
Honey Lake Plantation, located in northwest Madison County, is gracefully designed to accommodate a variety of events including weddings, corporate and family retreats, concerts, auctions, meetings, fundraisers, etc. Guests have plenty of activities from which to choose, including horseback riding, hiking, kayaking, canoeing, hunting and freshwater fishing.
Blackhawk Engineering developed the site plan and designed and permitted the stormwater system for the Resort, including a new meeting hall and hotel, two pavilions, several cottages, spa and salon, and other buildings. BHE also designed the foundations and performed the windload analyses for the new buildings.
St. Augustine Plantation
Assisted Living - Addition
Blackhawk Engineering has permitted two projects for St. Augustine Plantation Assisted Living, originally constructed in 1998. The first addition was a 27-bed expansion which added on to the existing building. The second is a Memory Care Facility which will provide services for clients requiring extra care. For Phase II, a wetlands crossing was required. In addition to the City and NWFWMD permits, Blackhawk Engineering also performed the hydraulic analysis for the crossing, and completed the structural design for the culvert and retaining walls. Construction of the project is currently underway.
(Capital Circle Southeast)
In 2016 Blackhawk Engineering designed and permitted Tallahassee’s newest Dairy Queen on 1319 Capital Circle SE. The design of this DQ layout includes an internal parking lot with a wraparound drive through to prevent vehicle stacking conflicts. The stormwater management facility was designed in accordance with the City of Tallahassee (COT) standards for the lake Lafayette open basin scenario. Among the standard permits required by the COT, additional permits necessary for his project included FDOT driveway connection, FDOT drainage, and the NPDES approval.
March Creek Subdivision
March Creek subdivision is currently under construction on the Northwest corner of Appalachee Parkway and March Road. The project consists of developing the ±17.4 acre land into a 63 lot single family detached subdivision. Blackhawk Engineering is happy to assist in the development of this project by providing construction administration services which includes designing the Maintenance of Traffic plan (MOT), redesigning and value engineering the stormwater system, and updating expired permits.
