KSingh was retained by Burns & McDonnell to perform Land Surveying, Geotechnical Engineering and Analysis, and Civil Engineering for the Utility Distribution and Power Plant Improvements project at the Milwaukee Regional Medical Center (MRMC). The project includes utility routing for chilled water lines and a steam tunnel from the Power Plant to the various buildings on the campus. This project includes storm water management, design for sewer adjustments and relocations, and tunnel drainage.
As part of this project, KSingh is generating subsurface 3D utility models for clash detection. The project involves design of a new tunnel alignment as well as repairs to existing tunnels. The tunnels carry utilities critical to the operations for the various Hospitals at the campus.
The tunnels are in need of repair in part due to groundwater infiltration and penetration. This has resulted in damage to the utilities as well as the tunnel structure. The proposed design includes the interior tunnel drainage system.
The subsurface 3D utility model is being used for clash detection with the proposed trench. The model is being used to establish the alignment and profile for the direct bury utilities and the tunnel. It is also being used to analyze appropriate clearances for trenchless construction.
KSingh’s geotechnical team is responsible for the Geotechnical Investigation and Report. The geotechnical report provides analysis on the trenchless construction methods.
