Prairie Village Public Works Facility Receives Capstone Award
The Prairie Village Public Works Facility in Prairie Village, Kansas received a 2022 Capstone Award for Sustainability from the Kansas City Business Journal. The facility includes multiple sustainable features and is expected to achieve LEED Platinum certification, according to the journal.
Kaw Valley Engineering provided survey and geotechnical engineering services for the new facility. We are proud to have assisted with this award-winning project that created a sustainable and environmentally conscious facility for Prairie Village.
“KVE was excited to be a part of the project team to provide the City of Prairie Village Public Works Department a new state-of-the-art facility that will allow the City to continue providing first class municipal services while minimizing their overall environmental impact,” Lenexa Office Director Gary Leeds, PE, said. “KVE provided boundary and topographic surveying services as well as geotechnical engineering for the project. Congratulations to Clark & Enersen and the City of Prairie Village for receiving this award.”
The 20,500 square feet facility merges the administration offices, maintenance crews and garage bays into one area. The facility includes sustainable features like indoor water-use reduction, native landscaping, solar panels and other low emission solutions, according to Clark & Enersen, the architectural firm for this project. The Kansas City Business Journal reported that 85% of construction and demolition waste was diverted from the landfill for other purposes.
The Kansas City Business Journal’s Capstone Awards recognize projects completed throughout the Kansas City Metro. We are proud to see the Prairie Village Public Works Facility recognized for its sustainable design and construction.
Two other projects Kaw Valley Engineering worked on also received Capstone Awards last year in 2021. Read about the Park Hill Support Services Center and Transportation Hub here, and read about the Wonderscope Children’s Museum project here.
