Few places bridge past and future as well as the Lenexa Conference Center. The Center’s foundation is a 1930s barn, wrapped in an addition that utilizes the technology of tomorrow. McCownGordon turned this unusual combination into a distinctive showplace that’s become the center of Lenexa’s meeting and tourism activity. The innovative solution was turning the old brick barn into a high-tech conference center, equipped with plasma screens, smart boards, Internet access, video conference capabilities and an excellent sound system for social functions. The project also included structural enhancement for a new roof-a green roof that decreases run-off, increases oxygen and is aesthetically pleasing to the atmosphere.
