KC HEADER- 20″ PIPELINE PROJECT
The City of Kansas City has been providing gas to businesses and homeowners with some of the original pipelines that have been installed decades ago. With aging pipelines that are becoming more prone to leak. Spire is replacing the old lines with a new 20-inch pipeline from South Kansas City to a hub in Sugar Creek, Missouri that can act as the new “back bone” for the City of Kansas City and surrounding communities.
Spire Inc. retained McClure to provide complete design services for a 20-inch natural gas pipeline. McClure provided Spire with a route analysis at the very begin to determine the preferred path through the city. This was complete by multiple meets with surrounding municipalities, spending countless hours of collecting utility data, and collecting data for future City projects to avoid. McClure was able to begin survey work and design work on all phases spanning across multiple years. Each phase of this 20-mile pipeline as provide unique challenges specific to each phase. Success on a project of this magnitude is only possible with constant communication with all parties. Working alongside Spire with weekly meeting has proven to be instrumental in maintaining the overall project schedule. Across all phases of this 20-mile pipeline McClure completed land surveying, easement exhibits, and construction plans on behalf of the Spire.
