Heartland Logistics Park

Shawnee, KS

RIC is on a team to provide civil engineering, land surveying, and landscape architecture services for the new Heartland Logistics Park in Shawnee, KS. The industrial park will sit on 150 acres at the northwest corner of 43rd Street and Kansas Highway 7. The development will feature 2 million s.f. of industrial space spread across multiple manufacturing, warehouse, and distribution buildings.

The RIC team is providing topographic and ALTA surveys, railroad right-of-way investigation, utility coordination, concept development and exhibit preparation, site development plans, a floodplain analysis, storm drainage analysis and design, landscape plans, and a traffic impact study. Sanitary sewer design includes force main, lift station, and gravity main plans along with gravity main inspection and testing. A major component of the project is the floodplain analysis as 43rd Street, Clare Road, and the building floor elevations are being designed above the floodplain. The Kansas River surrounds the development on the North and East sides so RIC prepared a model of the river to determine the actual floodplain elevations.

RIC’s transportation engineers, traffic engineers, and surveyors are also working with the City of Shawnee and KDOT in preparing public road infrastructure plans for 43rd Street, Clare Road, and Kansas Highway 7 in support of the development.
