Block 1 Continues to Make Progress Toward December Completion


Block 1 Ambassador Hotel - Ruggles & Bohm - Wichita - Civil Engineering

Ambassador Hotel guest drop off and parking garage entrance from South Broadway.

Ruggles & Bohm is part of the team working on several projects at Block 1, the first complete redevelopment of a city block in downtown Wichita.  As the Ambassador Hotel, a new seven story city parking structure, and urban park come down the home stretch towards a December 2012 completion, we are proud to say we have been involved since the beginning.  Our office has provided surveying, civil engineering and utility planning for the project; which includes new alley paving, complete replacement and/or relocation of several major alley utilities (some almost 90 years old), and new public spaces.  Additionally, we are providing construction staking and inspection services to the construction team being led by Key Construction.  The project architect is WDM Architects.

It is Truly an Honor to be Involved From the Beginning Through End of the Block 1 Redevelopment

Further construction staking has been provided to Opus Northwest, the developer and general contractor for the adjacent Kansas Leadership Center building on the same block.
