SK Design is the civil engineer for Cerner Innovations and has been responsible for civil design of all site work, roadways and utilities. SK Design has led a team of professionals such as traffic engineers, a lighting consultant, a signalization consultant and landscape architect to perform these services. The project includes over eight miles of roadway improvements on and off the campus. The site is comprised of five mini-campuses with 4.5 million square feet of multi-level buildings, including a corporate training center (hotel included), a campus health clinic, two data centers, a daycare center, and a service center.
The plan also proposes a 400,000-square foot retail/commercial development that includes a hotel and a grocery store and surface parking for approximately 15,700 spaces. The development consists of phased construction, phases 1 and 2 are complete and phases 3 and 4 are to be occupied by 2020. The final phase is projected to be completed in 2031. SK Design has been responsible for the design and construction administration of over $70M of site and utility work.
The project included improvements to Bannister Road from Marion Ridge to White Avenue, Hillcrest Road between 87th Street and Bannister Road, 93rd Street, Marion Ridge, Drury and 94th Terrace; 3 new roundabouts; several miles of trails; and new streetscape. SK Design was responsible for intersection design and signals at the following public roadways:
- 87th and Hillcrest
- Bannister and Hillcrest
- 93rd and Hillcrest
- Bannister and Drury
- Bannister and Marion Ridge
SK Design also coordinated all the utility relocations with utility companies and assigned horizontal and vertical geometry to all public and private utilities. Telecom lines were placed in duct banks where possible. We also modeled all the utilities in 3D to ensure that there were no conflicts. 3D models were provided to the Contractor which proved to be an invaluable asset for construction and coordination of utilities.
