Representative Services:

Cost Estimating - Blue Condominium

Description: This $100 million, 38-story condominium tower in Miami was recently completed. Designed by the world famous firm Arquitectonica, this project is a landmark in South Florida. Dart Engineering was engaged by the developer to prepare an independent quantity survey and cost estimate of the project prior to completing the plans, soliciting bids from general contractors, and most importantly, establishing the sale prices for the condominium units. Dart's estimate was within 4% of the low bid received by the developer six months later.
Dart services: Plan review, cost estimating, value engineering


Program Manager - Flores del Sol Condominiums

Description: Dart was retained to oversee the development of this 50-unit condominium project on 6 acres in Titusville, Florida.  This is the 5th project Dart has done for the same Developer.  This development involves requesting the County to vacate a right-of-way on the property, annexing the property into the City, and rezoning the property.  Estimated development budget is $16 million with completion scheduled for 2008.


Pavement Restoration - Edgewater Condominiums

Description: The Board of Directors of this 25-year-old, 312-unit property awarded Dart a contract to  evaluate over 22,000 square yards of asphalt paving on the property. After completion of the evaluation, Dart prepared engineering plans and specifications for the pavement restoration.  Dart also provided construction administration and testing services. This $275,000 project was completed 1% under budget and 3 days ahead of schedule. 


New Building Inspection - Minorca Condominiums

Description: The first phase of the ultra exclusive Minorca Condominiums in New Smyrna Beach includes two 9 story towers.  Shortly after the Developer turned over the Condominium Association to the Residents, Dart was employed to inspect the buildings to assure the Residents that the property was “as-advertised” by the Developer.


Building Restoration Engineering - Edgewater Condominiums
