MKEC teams up to bring an innovative center to life

March 6, 2018

We are privileged to partner with the developers and Boulder Associates Architects on this latest project: a 70,000-square-foot, three-story rehabilitation facility.


Bakken Oil Express

December 8, 2017

Although this complex project called for a full range of engineering disciplines, the most difficult challenge was beating the clock. We joined the project in April, charged with helping make it operational by the end of that year.


Crude Oil Gathering Pipeline System

November 5, 2017

Rapid and extensive development in North Dakota’s Bakken Formation has presented a number of opportunities and challenges. One such challenge is to comply safely and efficiently with increasing regulations on truck transport of crude oil. Our client seeks to develop a gathering system around Watford City, N.D., with a connection to the Tesoro crude oil pipeline.


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.

Remember the last time you took a spin on the #joyland carousel? Our team helped design the carousel’s new home at the Botanica Carousel Gardens and it's making them feel like kids again. We can’t wait to start making new memories when #carouselgardens opens in September! Watch the video to learn more about its past and future – and be sure to share your #joylandcarousel memories and pics in the comments! #EngineeringSuccess

Botanica
The Carousel Gardens is coming to Botanica in September 2019!🎠 The Carousel (fondly referred to as the Joyland Carousel) was donated to Botanica in 2014 by the current owner of Joyland, Margaret Nelson Spear. Since the time of the donation, numerous groups, individuals, businesses and artists have come together to start the restoration project and bring the carousel back to life for the community to ride once again in its new home at Botanica!

In addition to it being important to our community, it is important to know that this particular carousel is known to be the only one of its kind in existence. It is believed that the Joyland 40-foot, 36-horse, 2-chariot Allan Herschell carousel is the only one remaining in existence.

We have selected WDM Architects to design the Botanica Carousel Pavilion. The 9,000 sq. foot Carousel Pavilion and surrounding gardens will be located west of Downing Children’s Garden.The carousel will be open year-round, as the building will be designed to be enclosed and heated or open-air during nice weather. From time-to-time pieces of Joyland memorabilia will be on display in the Pavilion.
