TRT Holdings, in conjunction with HKS, Inc., has awarded Genesis a Civil Engineering Services Contract in the efforts of adding a new wing to the OMNI AMELIA ISLAND PLANTATION HOTEL AND CONFERENCE CENTER

HKS, Incorporated a world renowned Architectural firm has designed the new wing of the existing hotel, which will include; guest rooms, expansion of the existing conference center, replacing the existing pools at the beach club, and modifications to the site pedestrian circulation and parking, and minor changes to the existing roadways.

Genesis will begin by reviewing the Schematic Design; provide site work design for areas adjacent to proposed expansion and new construction areas, including parking areas, pedestrian walkways and boardwalks; design new, or modify existing, stormwater management facilities to accommodate the proposed modifications and expansions; design stormwater collections systems for various improvement areas; design extensions of the potable water system to accommodate the needs of the new and existing facilities; design extensions of the high pressure water main as necessary for fire suppression systems; design new gravity sewer collection mains and transmission systems, including designs for a new on-site lift station that serves the Hotel and Conference Center; develop pavement sections for pedestrian and vehicle areas; and provide erosion control plans for all phases of construction. Genesis will participate in all project coordination meetings with General Contractors, Construction Managers and Subconsultants. In addition, Genesis will prepare final construction documents and application packages for permitting, as well as work with Dial Cordy and Associates, Inc. on environmental issues.

In 1996, Genesis completed the site design and restoration for the Conference Center and Beach Club. The 22,000 SF Beach Club design included pool amenities such as ornamental fountains, a lath covered arbor, shade trellis, beach access boardwalks, tot lot, and lawn area for pool side hammocks. The area was configured to facilitate at least 600 guests, which included; swimming, dining, lounging, dining, and evening events.

The new project is to begin in July 2011, and an estimated construction cost to be approximately $53,000,000. The new facilities are scheduled to be open by summer 2013.
