WET Engineering acted as a subconsultant to the fountain equipment manufacturer for two fountains for this park that is the centerpiece of the Tampa Riverwalk. One of the fountains was a ‘Louver’ fountain with a series of parallel rectangular orifices cut into a concrete paver deck, each with several animated fountain jets. The second, the ‘Mist’ fountain, is adjacent to the Riverwalk and is more subdued, with a cooling mist emitted from a matrix of nozzles mounted below the paver deck. The fountain equipment was installed in self contained fiberglass vaults. Both systems employ pressure sand filters for water treatment and UV systems with backup sodium hypochlorite injection for disinfection. In addition to coordination with the equipment manufacturer during the design process, WET Engineering provided permitting services through the Hillsborough County Health Department (HCHD). The fountains opened in the spring of 2010 to rave reviews from the Tampa community.
WET Engineering has a 5-year continuing contract with the Clay County Utility Authority and has successfully completed a number of utility plant design projects. We are very satisfied with their work and the professionalism of the staff. The projects were completed on schedule and we have had minimal change orders.
We were looking to install ProSlide's very first RideHouse and needed an engineer who could design a drainage and supply water plan as well as a mechanical room. We heard about the problems other parks had with similar structures, and couldn't be happier about our choice to go with WET Engineering. They were there for support during the build process and the system works without a flaw.
WET Engineering is not only efficient & effective in their professional role, but they take the time to engage with clients with a genuine interest in how a project impacts the entire area and community. Their knowledge & attention to detail have aided the Cross City in securing funding and completing time sensitive projects.
We have been working with WET Engineering/North Beach Engineering since early 2000. In every instance they were knowledgeable and finished work in a timely manner.
