Burns & McDonnell Unveils New World Headquarters in South KC

16 May 2016 1:11 PM | Vickie Wolgast (Administrator)

Burns & McDonnell on Thursday celebrated the opening of an expansion of its world headquarters, a building that would make many Kansas City office employees envious.

The four-story, 310,000-square-foot building at 9450 Ward Parkway is the third structure on the architecture, engineering and construction firm’s 37-acre campus in south Kansas City.

And the building was designed with some key amenities in mind, including an expanded health center with nurse practitioners on site, a full-service pharmacy and a coffee bar with barista service.

“Our vision for this building was to create a capstone to the Ward Parkway corridor and to really express the forward-thinking, big, bold move that Burns & Mac makes in the business we do every day for our clients in this building,” said Lori Top, a Burns & McDonnell architect and the project manager. “Hopefully, we have done that.”

The company has 2,700 employees in Kansas City, about half of its 5,400 workers worldwide.
