Project Overview

ATM was retained to assist Range Developments with coastal engineering aspects of a beach resort hotel property in St Kitts, along the Southeast Peninsula. We completed a coastal hazard risk evaluation to inform the siting and design of a new Park Hyatt luxury hotel and resort. ATM’s work built on previous studies for the Christophe Harbour Development and included documentation of historical erosion rates, a site visit to document and observe existing site conditions, consideration of sea level rise, and prediction of extreme event occurrences (tropical systems and their impacts to the beach and proposed infrastructure). As a result of the coastal hazard risk analysis, ATM made recommendations for site plan adjustments, minimum construction setbacks, building construction elevations (FFEs), native beach preservation, and beach performance monitoring.
