Working with Elizabeth Fountain and JR Evans Engineers on a 450 key hotel on Clearwater Beach has been a rewarding experience. Engaging JR Evans Engineers in schematic design allowed my team the time necessary to reconcile site improvements already existing seaward of our property, while simultaneously establishing a design strategy that permitted the entire site to be evaluated an AE zone. Before engineering, the site was considered by FEMA to be within a VE Zone. With proper scheduling and JR Evans’ proven track record with CLOMR (Conditional Letter of Map Revision) approvals, my team was able to save the owner money on foundation design, cost associated with flood resistant construction in a velocity zone, and a continual return on investment through insurance premium savings.

I highly recommend considering JR Evans for any coastal development. Additionally the engineering involved with submitting a CLOMR to FEMA was tailored specifically to the client’s request, and was supportive documentation for our structural engineer’s assessment regarding scour, and designing the foundation. The entire process has resulted in a better building.

Elizabeth Fountain, I just wanted to write you about the terrific article I just read about you in the E Bella Magazine recently.

I had to wholeheartedly agree with the comment that you often help “property owners save money on flood insurance expenses or reducing their risk of flooding overall” – you most certainly did that for the community of Rapallo, and we’re grateful!

Congratulations on such a great article that highlights your achievements and what a great asset you are to the community. Your picture was beautiful and it was especially wonderful to see an "Estero" woman being highlighted for a Naples magazine!
