Tomahawk Park Trail

2014 ABC Heart of America Excellence in Construction President’s Award

 

2014 ABC Heart of America Excellence in Construction Award

Improvements to Tomahawk Park Trail, consists of restoration of slope failures on the existing trail, by way of installing reinforced pile walls along the adjacent Tomahawk Creek and along the slopes at the edge of the trail, protection of the slopes uphill and downhill of the trail by implementing large modular block retaining walls and a natural limestone rock feature.  Crews will work with difficult access of near-vertical slopes and unusually cold wet weather to restore slopes adjacent to the trail.  Landscaping was installed to reestablish the site to a natural state while stabilizing the grades from future erosion and deterioration.  

Janet K. Meyer Miller Terrace

2013 ABC Heart of America Excellence in Construction Award

The Kansas City Art Institue "Janet K. Meyer Miller Terrace" is a project designed to enhance the 6,500 square foot plaza area located in the heart of the Kansas City Art Institue.  The newly designed patio area is centrally located between many of the historic KCAI classroom buildings.  The unique features and lighting in this area create the perfect study space for students regardless of the time of day.  The patio centers are the "Wallace Fountain", a symbol of Paris, France, where the historical fountain originated.  The lighting, landscaping, and patio furniture all complete this space to provide an environment ideal for students.  The project had a short construction schedule as the project was to be completed while the students were on summer break.  Access to the project was confined to space in between existing historic structures, forcing smaller than normal construction equipment to be used on the project.  Installation on the "Wallace Fountain" proved to be difficult as the drinking fountain weighed 1,200 pounds and was installed in the middle of the project.  Now the students have a courtyard to enjoy for generations to come.
