Grandview Yard Gas Distribution
This upscale urban community development in Grandview Heights, Ohio, will provide over 2 million square feet of new office, hotel, restaurant/retail, fitness and residential facilities once completed. The site formerly housed a warehouse and had degraded into a brownfield. Due to the anticipated increase in density for the area and due to its aging infrastructure, the area required an overall infrastructure enhancement. EMH&T worked closely with the developer, City of Grandview Heights, City of Columbus, and Columbia Gas to design gas distribution systems that effectively tie into and utilize the surrounding area’s existing utility lines. In addition, EMH&T prepared and obtained the railroad permit to allow Columbia Gas to bore through the existing railroad embankment to increase serviceability to the area.
