Engineering, architecture and consulting company Burns & McDonnell has put forward a proposal to design and build a new one-terminal airport in Kansas City, in the USA.

Kansas City Mayor Sly James announced the proposal after calling for business leaders to come forward to help expand the area’s transit opportunities.

Burns & McDonnell will also lead a team of investors, such as Americo, to finance the project. 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.

Ray Kowalik, chairman and CEO at Burns & McDonnell, said, “Burns & McDonnell is committed to investing in the city we all love and provide a creative Kansas City solution to a Kansas City challenge.

“Burns & McDonnell is the largest engineering consulting firm in Missouri and we have significant airport design and construction experience. This is what we do. We are delighted to have the opportunity to bring this expertise in our home town.”

Greg Hamilton, vice president of investments at Americo Life, added, “Our company has been in this community for generations and the future of our city is very important to us.

“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 currently working on major airport projects across the USA, including La Guardia in New York and LAX in California.
