Club de Yates Yacht Club

While at EDSA, Michael Meyers worked as both project manager and designer on the master planning effort at Club de Yates Yacht and Fishing club in Panama City, Panama. The goal of the project was to provide the client with three feasible options to present to both the Government and potential investors. Heading up the design team on behalf of EDSA, Mr. Meyers worked in conjunction with ARX  (3D imaging) and Edward Medina (Architecture) to provide three illustrative master plan options and a digital 3D model.

 

As part of the development of the master plan, Mr. Meyers conducted an on-site workshop and produced final client concepts using traditional hand graphics, Photoshop, AutoCAD, and Microsoft Office tools. The existing marina laid in the shallow Panama Bay and received large amounts of sediments from the adjacent outflow as well as a large tide swing. The Government required that the marina  be accessible to the public but the site allowed no room for expansion. The options provided produced remedies to these issues through the addition of groins to divert sediment, consolidation of boat storage with dry stack, green roofs to soften views from adjacent properties  as well as reduce heat island effects. Plans also included commercial frontage along dry storage as well as expansion of public parks and promenade.
