In 1898 our corporate founders, Clinton Burns and Robert McDonnell, selected Kansas City as their home base after looking for a central location with plenty of potential water and sewer clients within a day's travel. Since then, the Burns & McDonnell World Headquarters has grown to fill three office buildings with more than 2,300 employee-owners.
Today more than 350 engineering, architectural, construction, environmental and consulting services are offered to our clients.
People needn't look far for the many ways the company touches their lives every day. From the water they drink, to the air they breathe, from the airport and roads they travel to the electricity that powers their homes and businesses, Burns & McDonnell is there contributing to the quality of life.
The award recognizes outstanding entrepreneurs who demonstrate excellence and extraordinary success in such areas as innovation, financial performance, and personal commitment to their businesses and communities. Graves was one of four 2014 national finalists in Real Estate, Construction and Lodging.
Inspired by Burns & McDonnell's Battle of the Brains, the nation's most robust STEM competition, the exhibits bring the winning ideas of area kids to life. See the article in the Kansas City Star.
