Few places bridge past and future as well as the Lenexa Conference Center. The Center’s foundation is a 1930's barn wrapped in an addition that utilizes the technology of tomorrow. McCownGordon turned this unusual combination into a distinctive showplace that has 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.
