Berthold Rail Loading Facility

October 15, 2017

The Bakken formation constitutes one of the world’s most rapidly developing shale plays. MKEC was contracted to plan, design and engineer a unit train loading facility to allow our client to move crude oil to market. The finished facility needed to be capable of handling eight unit trains per week while accommodating the switching requirements for an adjacent grain elevator.


U.S. 77 Over Black Bear Creek

September 4, 2017

We were asked to design a three-span bridge to replace an existing outmoded 1931 single-span steel trestle bridge over a tributary to the Arkansas River in north-central Oklahoma. This included relocating a driveway at one end of the bridge.


Stormwater Drainage – Fox Ridge

August 17, 2017

We were asked to create an upscale development with dominant water features and view-out basements resulting in desirable lots that would sell in a down economy. All of this needed to be accomplished within a budget that would make economic sense for the developer.


Kansas Star Casino Storm Water Control

June 20, 2017

The Kansas Star Casino development covers 206 acres including a 162,500-square-foot casino with hotel, parking lots and equestrian facilities. Site drainage design was a challenge as a result of multiple adjacent watersheds, downstream flow restrictions and shallow groundwater that had a history of causing problems within an adjacent residential development.


Eastborough Park / Kellogg Drive Buffer

April 18, 2017

In the early 2000s, the need to make Kellogg Avenue a major freeway through the center of the Wichita metropolis required demolition of the row of homes abutting Kellogg on southern border of Eastborough. We were engaged by Eastborough to represent it through the Kellogg construction process, and to devise a plan to buffer the effects of a major throughway right up against the small enclave’s southern border.
