Replacement of a deteriorated steam tunnel system with new direct buried piping located at one of Iowa City’s busiest intersections. Utilizing Revit modeling and temp steam phasing the design team developed a strategy to use the existing tunnel as a conduit for direct buried piping. This allowed the intersection and steam to be operational at all times. After the intersection the project faced challenges of installing piping within an arterial street.
