In 2014, the old Selva Marina Country Club in Atlantic Beach, Florida was closed and redeveloped into the Atlantic Beach Country Club (ABCC). The redevelopment included a new clubhouse, pool, tennis courts, golf club, and renovated and narrowed 18-hole golf course to add estate homes to the ABCC. The ABCC clubhouse and amenities opened in 2016 and were designed to accommodate the residents only; however, due to the popularity of the new club, their membership numbers far exceeded their expectations. In 2019, their amenities were overwhelmed by the number of guests visiting the club.

In 2020, a strategic plan was created by an ad hoc committee to remedy their issues, conceptual designs were created by an architect in 2021, and in 2022, a design team assembled to produce construction plans and obtain permits for the many improvements. The proposed solutions and improvements for this first phase included HVAC repairs; an expanded kitchen; added space for storage and staff space; additional outdoor seating at the clubhouse; a kid’s cabana; drainage improvements to the events lawn, tennis courts, and patios; addition of a tennis pavilion, more tennis courts, and new pickleball courts; renovation to Pete’s Café at the golf club to provide accessibility to a new dining area upstairs; outdoor dining space overlooking the golf course; and additional golf cart parking for residents to dine at the Café. The second phase will include a new golf pro shop and renovations to the driving range.

BGE was engaged to provide civil engineering for the many improvements and additions included with the first two phases and to gain approvals with the various local agencies. Other team members include Shepphird & Associates (Architect), GTP Consulting Engineers (MEP), Shear Structural, Land Wise Design (Landscape Architecture), Young Caruso (Food Service Design), Harris Interiors (Interior Design), Terracon (Geotechnical), and Melrose & Associates (Surveyor).
