Two Kansas City Firms to Lead Aviation Fuel Line Relocation on KCI New Terminal Project

Edgemoor Infrastructure & Real Estate and Clark | Weitz | Clarkson (CWC) recently awarded the contract for fuel line relocation services to Kansas City-based firms U.S. Engineering and Alexander Mechanical. U.S. Engineering and Alexander Mechanical first joined the KCI New Terminal Project team in spring 2018 and are providing design-build mechanical services for the project. Their latest contract, a separate scope of work and critical component of the project, will enable fuel service to continue at Terminals B and C amidst construction of the New Terminal. The relocated fuel line will also serve the New Terminal when complete. 

U.S. Engineering, a Kansas City Business Journal 2019 Champion of Business, has provided construction and maintenance services for industrial, commercial, institutional, and advanced technology facilities since its founding in 1893. The company consistently ranks in the top 25 of mechanical contractors in America.

Alexander Mechanical, a certified Kansas City-based minority-owned business, specializes in the service, repair, and replacement of equipment and systems in commercial, industrial, and institutional markets across the Midwest.  Alexander Mechanical has maintained a 20-year working relationship with U.S. Engineering, a partnership that began in 1999 with the renovation of the existing KCI terminals.

“U.S. Engineering and Alexander Mechanical have a long and successful history of working together on meaningful projects that impact this region,” said U.S. Engineering Senior Project Manager Adam Provost. “We are excited to have the opportunity to continue this relationship while working together to deliver Kansas City a new world-class terminal.”

The partnership with U.S. Engineering and Alexander Mechanical furthers the Edgemoor Team’s commitment to maximizing opportunities for both small and local firms to participate in the $1.5 billion project. To date, over 80 locally-owned firms and 60 certified Kansas City-based minority- and women-owned businesses have joined the design-build team.

The demolition of the Terminal A and parking garage structures was completed in July; work to remove, sort, and recycle materials is ongoing. The New Terminal is scheduled to open in spring 2023.
