VSM Engineering has designed more than 56,357 LF or 10.6 miles of water main replacement in the past five years. These projects have included design, planning, analysis, construction plans, and construction contract administration. Sanitary sewer gravity line projects range in size from eight to 36 inches.
VSM provided engineering support for the design analysis and study of chilled water at KCI Airport. Developed construction plans for the replacement and rehabilitation of 11,000 LF of chilled water line, which consisted of 12-in, 16-in, and 24-in pipes, including 5,530 LF of 12-in CIPP water line. The project required extensive routing and alignment in a severely congested environment, valve location determination for operations improvements, daily coordination with parking and terminal operations, and sediment and erosion control. The pipeline replacement included boring, open trench, and CIPP pipe repairs.
VSM has managed and designed several water main replacement (WMR) projects for the City of Kansas City, Missouri’s Water Services Department. VSM also has extensive experience as a subconsultant on WMR projects, providing a range of services, including utility coordination, Envision evaluations, and design support.
