To Burns & McDonnell, Kansas City is home. It has been since our founders put down roots in 1898 and, with the world headquarters expansion at Ward Parkway and Wornall Road, it will be well into the future.
Our work is the fabric of the Kansas City community. We design safe roads and easy travel through Kansas City International Airport. We manage a multifaceted overflow control program to alleviate flooding of the city’s sanitary and combined sewer systems. We help Kansas City Power & Light provide power, and we help people have fun at places like the Sprint Center and the Truman Sports Complex.
As a 100 percent employee-owned firm, we’re not only vested in the work we do, but also the service we give back to the community. Science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education is critical to the successful future of us all. To get kids interested early, we share our passion for STEM fields through educational opportunities in the classroom and on-site and through our metrowide Battle of the Brains
Our community outreach goes beyond math and science, too. Our employee-owners enjoy lending a helping hand through United Way, Christmas in October, Habitat for Humanity, Rock the Parkway
, which benefits Science City, and a host of other organizations that make our community amazing.
No. 15 on Fortune’s list of the 100 Best Companies to Work For and the Kansas City Business Journal’s reigning Best Place to Work in Kansas City, Burns & McDonnell is proud to be Kansas City’s hometown engineering firm.
