The seascape may be nice and calm some of the time but can be equally turbulent at others. Winds up to 130 mph are not unheard of, causing the rain to find an upward direction, taking the sand and salt along with it. With expertise designing for coastal weather extremes, Interface Engineering specified the HVAC and electrical systems for these windy and rainy conditions, and durability against the salt-air environment. The resort also includes retail space on the ground floor, and a five-story parking structure with 200 of the stalls reserved for the general public.
