MU East Campus Plant Growth Facility
New Greenhouse for the University of Missouri that involved relocation of site sewers that were over 50 feet deep prior to construction. The East Campus Growth Facility consists of 24 greenhouses, many of which are extended height and all with HID lighting and RO irrigation water. Cold storage facilities, seed processing and drying rooms, a root washing area, shared lab space and an isolation suite complete this impressive structure.
American Airlines had a 22,000 SF maintenance facility at the Springfield-Branson National Airport that they had outgrown, and in 2020 selected KCI Construction to build a larger modern MRO (maintenance, repair & overhaul) facility that could house three Embraer-175 jets, which are regional aircraft that can hold 88 passengers. The pre-engineered building predominantly contains maintenance & repair space for planes accessed through 215 ft wide x 35 ft high doors, as well as offices and training spaces.
AVCRAD Phase 3A Addition
84,000 SF addition to the existing Aviation Classification Repair Activity Depot in Springfield, MO, which includes new helicopter maintenance facilities for wiring, electronics and navigations. Additional spaces include maintenance instruction, mobilization, operations and flight, and was built to accommodate an additional future readiness center.
Cox College Renovation
Renovation of the 52,600 square foot Cox College School of Nursing, performed over a 3-phase schedule within a one-year time frame. Renovations included MEP systems, interior finishes, windows, and a new atrium stairway constructed of architectural concrete.
BCT-3 South Phase 2 Dining Facility (DFAC)
In recent years the Federal Government has followed a trend of setting aside construction projects for small, disadvantaged, minority or veteran owned businesses. KCI Construction does not fit those classifications, and as a result teams with a business that does fit the classification. This was the first successful teaming arrangement, as KCI and Donald Maggi were awarded this small-business set-aside summer of 2013. Upgrades and realignment at the Ft. Leonard Wood Army Base necessitated this facility, for dining by 1,300 soldiers stationed in the new BCT-3 South Barracks. The single story building is simple construction of concrete foundations, steel frame,…
Greystone Condominium Exterior Improvements
On a 15-story, 1920’s circa building, the original concrete balconies had deteriorated to a point that they were unsafe for use. Initial evaluation of the decks indicated less than 5% spalling of the balconies, but upon demolition it was discovered that some decks had over 50% deteriorated concrete. Thus, the levels were replaced one at a time to accommodate safety concerns and forming systems, and to allow owner use of remaining balconies in summer months that construction took place. All new balconies were architecturally stamped, stained and sealed and provided with new architectural painted handrails, and the underside of the…
Carondelet Recreation Complex
Certified as a LEED Silver project, the Carondelet Recreation Complex is a full service recreational facility, enjoying meeting room, classroom, fitness, natatorium and gymnasium spaces. The facility also includes an exterior plunge pool, lazy river and tot pool facilities which include several play devices for preschool and grade school children. Athletic endeavors are rounded out with a softball field in near proximity, and the entire complex is situated within a local city park. Facilities are on two levels allowing for substantial indoor running track capability. The original pricing was substantially over the owner’s budget which allowed a joint value-engineering effort….
Brady Commons Addition
This addition to the existing student center was the first phase of the complete renovation of the existing facility, and included selective demolition, site improvements and the addition of a new four-level concrete structure. To facilitate construction, we were required to provide shoring to support the existing and fully occupied two level building, which was just five feet from the new structure. The schedule was maintained despite numerous owner initiated changes to ensure the building was complete by the Christmas Break, so that the owner could maintain revenue levels for the bookstore that exceed $100 million annually.
Virginia Avenue South Student Housing
After ten years of record-breaking enrollment and a consequent increased demand for on-campus housing, Mizzou approved plans for a new 330 bed dormitory, just south of the Virginia Avenue Housing and Dining Complex. KCI was the successful bidder on this 5-story community-style hall, which includes 20 percent single rooms and 80 percent double rooms. Construction is challenged by the installation of a new steam manhole and chase nestled between, over and under existing utilities within a confined area of the site. The project will utilize a dovetailed metal floor deck as the exposed finish ceiling on thousands of square feet…
Tactical Equipment Maintenance Facility
Site preparation on the 50 acre site included substantial timber clearing and over 40 foot of fill work, and in spite of the earthwork being accomplished over the winter months, progress has continued to allow for an anticipated delivery as scheduled in April of 2014. The Tactical Equipment Maintenance Facilities (TEMF) will provide LEED Silver facilities for the maintenance and repair of various operational vehicles which also includes equipment storage, parts storage and administration space. The complex includes seven separate buildings that are a combination of pre-engineered metal buildings, load bearing masonry and steel framing. Site development includes construction of…
MAE Addition & Renovation
The renovation and expansion of the Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering complex was renamed Toomey Hall upon completion, based on the lead $5 million gift from John and Mary Toomey. The modernization renovated the existing 66,500 square foot building, and replaced the outdated Mechanical Engineering Annex – built in 1902 – with a modern addition. The new three-story steel framed addition of 80,500 sf was built next to the existing building which remained in service, and then upon completion the classes were moved into the new space to allow for renovation of the existing building. A three-story atrium connects the two…
BJC North Garage Expansion
BJC Hospital in St. Louis was out of parking spaces on their ever expanding campus, and one solution was to expand the North Garage built by KCI in 2001. The new garage was built on drilled piers, with the new entry ramp and three parking levels being constructed of cast-in-place, post-tensioned concrete. Precast panels were salvaged from the original garage and reinstalled on the new facade. Additional spaces were opened in the existing garage with completion of an adjacent asphalt surface lot for valet services. Construction was completed in eleven months, while working in the middle of a busy hospital…
Loop Trolley Maintenance Facility

The completed work will provide the owner with a renovated building modified for the Loop Trolley Maintenance & Storage Facility and first floor office space. Work includes historic renovation of the southern facade, complete demolition of interior components, underpinning existing brick walls, and installation of new recessed trolley car maintenance bays, to facilitate the trolley system being installed by KCI Construction under separate contract.
