COASTAL & MARINE SERVICES
Birkitt has provided services for extensive coastal and marine projects throughout Florida. Services have included design of shoreline protection efforts including surveying, environmental, engineering, and geotechnical services to complete conceptual and construction designs; development of detailed water quality and construction monitoring plans to ensure protection of water quality and coral reef, seagrass, and other benthic habitats. Sea turtle and manatee protection and monitoring plans have also been developed.

Projects such as the Tractebel Calypso pipeline that was proposed to cross from the Bahamas to Port Everglades in Florida and the 753-mile Gulfstream Natural Gas Pipeline Project that was constructed from Mississippi/Alabama to Port Manatee in Florida required detailed assessment of construction methodology and potential impacts to freshwater, estuarine, and marine habitat as well as negotiation of habitat mitigation plans in sensitive areas and environmental permits. Birkitt is managing a coastal shoreline stabilization, restoration, and protection project the City of Tampa (Rivergarden Project). The project includes the design of 2500 linear feet of shoreline along tidal portions of the Hillsborough River. Birkitt is also providing project management, siting assistance, environmental, geotechnical, and surveying oversight, mitigation, and water quality and permitting services for a 374-slip proposed marina in north central Florida.


LAND DEVELOPMENT SERVICES

Birkitt offers a complete range of natural resource consulting services, due diligence reviews, and feasibility analyses relating to development and mitigation for all types of impacts. Whether it’s a DRI or a small residential or commercial project we can provide wetlands delineations and assessment, wildlife surveys, agency coordination, mitigation, and environmental permitting. Projects include residential, industrial, and commercial developments, parks and marinas, and due diligence reviews for real estate transactions. Birkitt is the lead consultant on a 525-acre marina and mixed-use development project in Keaton Beach, Florida.

Birkitt can provide these services to a number of various projects and clientele including:


LINEAR PROJECTS
Birkitt has documented success in the siting, certification, and permitting of over 1500 miles of natural gas and utility pipelines in Florida and numerous roadway projects. Key projects have included the Gulfstream Natural Gas Pipeline from Mississippi/Alabama to Port Manatee in Florida, crossing through 10 counties and the Calypso Natural Gas Pipeline project from the Bahamas to Port Everglades, Florida. We also provide environmental monitoring for pipelines and roadways, including field inspections, monitoring, documentation and management of necessary maintenance, completion and production of reports and assistance in agency negotiation regarding compliance.


LOCAL GOVERNMENT
Birkitt can provide services to cities and counties as a single entity performing environmental consulting services, as project manager of a team designing a complicated restoration project, or as a team member on projects such as roadway or bridge design and construction. We are flexible in working for and with local governments and other consultants. Birkitt has assisted the City of Tampa, Hillsborough County, Pasco County, Port Richey, Hardee County, Pinellas County and others in roadway, bridge, and park development projects.


WATER MANAGEMENT DISTRICTS
Birkitt has experience with most of the state water management districts, including South Florida Water Management District, Southwest Florida Water Management District, Suwannee River Water Management District, and St. John’s River Water Management District. One large project in the South Florida Water Management District is the Lake Okeechobee Isolated Wetlands Restoration and Creation Program (LOIWRCP). The objective of LOIWRCP is to route nutrient-rich water from agricultural lands through the restored/created wetlands to remove total phosphorus loads into the lake. LOIWRCP is a voluntary landowner cost-sharing program funded through the South Florida Water Management District. The LOIWRCP offers landowners the opportunity to restore wetlands that have been converted to other uses or create new ones. Birkitt has been responsible for the construction of two wetland restoration projects for LOIWRP for 80 acres and 400 acres. Birkitt was also a team member on projects in the Suwannee River Water Management District and the St. John’s River Water Management District for minimum flows and level studies.
