We are very happy to announce the promotion of Michael Gmuer as our Technical Operations Manager. His skill in structuring and solving digital problems comes from a career in a wide range of electronic and internet based fields. Over the past year with Gmuer Engineering, many of you have worked with Mike and seen him become an integral part of our normal civil engineering workflows. However, behind the scenes, he has become integral in implementing our technology driven vision. He developed our rapid production laser cut 3D color site plan models, 3D extrusion printing, optimizing our equipment for our engineering workflows, helps with our targeted marketing efforts, and I could go on and on. We are very thankful to have him. Also, if you noticed his last name, yes, he’s my brother. For the past decade I’ve been trying to find a way to work with him and it finally happened - I couldn’t be happier.

Hidden Oak Elementary Starts Parking Lot Construction

Hidden Oak Elementary School needed to pave an existing overflow parking lot that over the years had gained more use. We helped the facilities department and the school's principal respond to feedback from parents and faculty in order to develop a long term solution. Phase 1 added 76 paved spaces (currently under construction) and addresses the initial paving of the lot, maintaining trees where possible, and providing stormwater treatment in close proximity of the source. Phase 2 is a future phase to revise the flow of morning drop-off and afternoon pick-up. It was great working with this team. Hope to have pictures of the finished project very soon!

Jacksonville Retail 1 of 2 Construction

This is the first of two posts for a Jacksonville project we were so happy to design and permit. These pictures are from construction back in September 2016. See post 2 of 2 for the finished site. It was a brownfield project that required great coordination with FDEP to create a stormwater solution that worked as well as being located underground. Crabtree Construction made construction super smooth. They followed the brownfield requirements to the letter.
