"Burns & McDonnell is committed to investing in the city we all love and provide a creative Kansas City solution to a Kansas City challenge," says Ray Kowalik, Chairman and CEO, Burns & McDonnell. "Burns & McDonnell is the largest engineering consulting firm in Missouri and we have significant airport design and construction experience. This is what we do. And we are delighted to have the opportunity to bring this expertise in our home town." Kowalik says in 2016 alone, Burns & McDonnell employees took more than 33,000 flights through KCI – that is more than 90 flights every single day. He says a one-terminal design is critical to the economic development of Kansas City, creating new jobs and the opportunity for more convenient flights in and out of KCI. "We're an employee-owned company, so an investment in KCI is not just from Burns & McDonnell, it's from each of our 5,700 employee-owners who use our airport every day and call Kansas City home." Through the innovative financing model, the airport would receive financing through private investments, paid for by airport usage fees, with no funds coming from the City's general fund, new taxes, or existing bonds. Investors Burns & McDonnell and Americo are Kansas City-based companies committed to the future growth of the city. "Our company has been in this community for generations and the future of our City is very important to us," said Greg Hamilton, Vice President of Investments at Americo Life, Inc. "We look forward to next steps in assisting Burns & McDonnell in assembling the required private funding.  We anticipate that we will be part of a large group that will help promote the new terminal project to the voting public." Burns & McDonnell is ranked as the No. three airport design firm in the country by Engineering News-Record and is the only Missouri firm in the top five. The Kansas City-based firm is currently working on major airport projects across the country, including La Guardia and LAX. For photos and support materials, please visit our MEDIA KIT.

Cramer joins the firm's growing team of more than 450 environmental professionals focused on providing integrated services from planning and permitting to remediation, demolition and decommissioning for clients in California and nationwide. In his role, Cramer will focus on developing geology-based groundwater Conceptual Site Models (CSMs) for complex sites to successfully design and implement remediation strategies. The biggest challenge to groundwater projects is uncertainty associated with the subsurface caused by complex geology. Geology provides subsurface "plumbing" that is the primary control on groundwater movement and contaminant migration. Cramer pioneered the application of sequence stratigraphy to groundwater remediation projects in the early 1990s and developed the practice of Environmental Sequence Stratigraphy. This geology-based groundwater remediation method is now the standard for the Air Force Civil Engineer Center (AFCEC) base-wide CSM program and is considered an emerging best practice by the Environmental Protection Agency. "An inadequate understanding of preferred contaminant migration pathways in the subsurface can cause groundwater remediation projects to underperform," Cramer says. "Our stratigraphy methodology constructs a more accurate subsurface framework based on decades of research. I'm looking forward to continuing to identify ways to help clients save time, money and resources through this methodology and other environmental technological advances." Cramer is a registered professional geologist in California and holds two degrees — a bachelor's degree in geology from the University of the Pacific and master's degree in geology from the University of California-Davis.

As classes conclude for the spring semester, the project will move to the second floor where existing food service and seating in the Pirate Café will be redesigned and updated. Over the summer months, serving areas will be reconfigured to feature interactive food stations as menu options are expanded. Expanded seating for up to 240 diners will be part of the remodel, incorporating bar tops and a variety of other seating configurations, all integrated with vibrant new color schemes and materials in a new contemporary space. The food service upgrade is scheduled to be completed in August, in time for the beginning of the 2017 fall semester. "We are honored and thrilled to have been selected by Park University to work with them to improve and beautify a facility that has long been at the center of student life for this iconic institution," says Greg Carlson, vice president of commercial construction for Burns & McDonnell. "The renovation of Thompson Commons and the Pirate Café supports Park University's commitment to student life and engagement," said Jayme Uden, Ed.D., associate vice president and dean of students at Park. "The services and programs in Thompson Commons will greatly benefit from these upgrades and will have a grander ability to impact student retention and success. We are very appreciative that Burns & McDonnell are partnering in this important endeavor." For photos and support materials, please visit our MEDIA KIT.

"The successful completion of this project has allowed us to continue delivering safe, reliable, renewable energy to our customer base of more than 15 million," says Roman Vazquez, senior project manager at SCE. "Burns & McDonnell delivered a cost-effective solution, on time and under budget — we couldn't be happier with the results and their overall support." The project won an Honor Award in the American Council of Engineering Companies of California's (ACEC California) Engineering Excellence Awards competition. The high-profile award contest recognizes the best engineering and construction projects in California in a number of different categories. The project was also honored with an ACEC National Recognition Award. "We're proud our work with Southern California Edison is being recognized among some of the most innovative and creative engineering solutions in our industry," says Travis McKinney, Burns & McDonnell Construction/Design-Build department manager in Southern California. "Our focus is always on making our clients successful and producing sustainable solutions to support our communities. Facing many unique regulatory, civic, design and construction challenges, our team was able to come up with a first-of-its-kind solution so our client could expand renewable energy and enhance regional power grid reliability." The 500kV underground transmission project crossed two major thoroughfares, several minor roadways, a shopping center, two flood-control channels and two holes of a golf course. One-third of the alignment was on a 15 percent average grade, with slopes as steep as 35 percent in some locations. In all, the project involved the installation of approximately 17,000 linear feet of duct bank and numerous horizontal drills ranging from 800 to 2,100 feet in length. Successful completion of the Mira Loma-Vincent 500kV Underground Transmission Project has allowed SCE to continue delivering on its commitment to providing renewable energy to customers. By breaking new ground to meet the installation requirements mandated by the CPUC, SCE has also laid the groundwork for future installations of extra high voltage transmission lines within underground duct systems. ACEC California's annual Engineering Excellence Awards competition recognizes outstanding achievements in engineering and land surveying projects completed by California firms. In 2017, 18 Honor Awards were granted to 12 firms, with an additional 20 Merit Awards granted to 11 firms. Honor Award winning projects will be recognized with photographic panels on display at the Capitol, outside of the Governor's office, in early 2017. Honor Award winners are eligible to enter ACEC's national level Engineering Excellence Awards competition, in Washington, D.C.

Patent
Burns and McDonnell | Date: 2014-07-25

A fuse and a method of using the fuse to removably couple a structure to an anchor preferably partially embedded in concrete. The fuse is configured to be removably coupled to the anchor so that the fuse is positioned in a load path between the anchor and the structure. The fuse is configured to deform in a ductile manner when the structure exerts a force on the fuse that causes a stress in the fuse which exceeds an elastic limit of the fuse. The fuse may be decoupled from the anchor without altering the concrete, the anchor, and the structure. If the structure exerts a force on the fuse that causes the fuse to deform in a ductile manner, the fuse may be decoupled from the anchor and replaced with another fuse.
