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.


The Waterfront Addition

March 11, 2017

A landscaped boulevard ties The Waterfront together, while a pedestrian promenade connects the restaurant area with adjacent office parks. MKEC collaborates closely with an architectural firm to incorporate ongoing design in this large, multi-phased project – one of the marquee developments on Wichita’s steadily growing east side.


Chapel Hill

January 27, 2017

A relatively new but fast-growing church – founded in the mid-90s and moving into their new church in the early 2000s – was already needing to expand. Our challenge was to design systems that could seamlessly serve the structure with efficient heating and cooling that could handle variable requirements and changing needs to match church use.

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.
