On January 12th, we were privileged to be invited to the Administration Building ribbon cutting ceremony and kick off celebration for Kansas City University’s 100th Anniversary. Celebrating the University’s rich history in the original Children’s Mercy Hospital facility now turned Administration building was an insight on the connection this university has with its mission. The project has been under works with the KCU family, Helix Architecture, and JE Dunn Construction. The finished restoration project is one that connects history with the modern office.
While there are many spaces to take in while visiting, there is one room in particular that caught my attention. If ever visiting this space, try to book a meeting in the third floor conference room. Once, a surgery room for the Children’s hospital is now turned meeting space. The picture does not do this space justice, but even on a dimly lit winter’s day outside, one can see the room radiates with natural light and a modern twist to a conference room.
With a mild winter this past year, the installation and scheduling went off without a hitch. Anna Graether, the facilities manager had a note to share with us, “When a project has as few problems as this one did, it shows there was a great team behind it.”
