At 1-million square feet, the terminal will be the largest single infrastructure project in Kansas City’s history.

Congratulations to St. Luke’s Rehabilitation Institute for being the first LEED-BD+Cv4 Healthcare certification in Kansas! ACI Boland Architects was the architect of record who established sustainable building goals with the owner and project team from conception. The project incorporates optimal daylighting and a focus on health and wellbeing for this new 90,000 square foot facility. The Rehabilitation Institute provides therapy for short and longer-term patients and outdoor respite areas were carefully designed to provide a meaningful amenity to patients and staff.
Have you heard the buzz about Arc? Arc provides tools to collect, manage, and score data needed for LEED certification. The tools provided help people understand the environmental impacts of a building or space, while achieving a performance score. The Milwaukee Buck’s Fiserv Forum and Training Center achieved LEED Silver certification in 2018 and GCG is now engaged to facilitate Arc certification. The buildings have been benchmarked for energy, water, waste, air quality and occupant transportation.
Join this virtual event exclusively for the USGBC community on June 8-10th.
