Omni Amelia Island Plantation Resort Expansion was completed in March 2013 in Nassau County. The project consisted of constructing a 155 room expansion to the existing hotel, 41,000 SF expansion to the conference center, construction of a new beach club, and pedestrian/vehicular upgrades to the retail center.

Genesis provided civil engineering services for the project; however, the major focus included fast tracking the permit process on both the local and state levels. Omni Hotels, LLC had a compressed project time frame which required a fast track permitting process. Genesis was successful in working with Nassau County in obtaining the required Preliminary Binding Site Plan and Site Engineering Approval for the expedited project.

This project was the first project to use a collaborative e-permitting process with St. Johns River Water Management District. Genesis successfully coordinated one-on-one training with SJRWMD in the use of the innovative collaborate permitting process, where RAIs are eliminated and permits were expedited. ERP approvals were realized within one month for Phase I and one and one-half months for Phase II.

Other entitlements that were required for the project included FDEP CCCL Permit, FDEP Water Distribution Permit, FDEP Sanitary Sewer Permit, FDEP NPDES Permit, FDEP Gopher Tortoises Relocation Permit, and ACOE Dredge and Fill Permit.
