Support Facility

Stowers Institute Medical Research

Stowers Institute for Medical Research selected McCownGordon as the construction manager to renovate a 280,000 square-foot existing commercial/industrial campus located in south Kansas City, Missouri. The support facility renovation included conversion of the existing office, cafeteria/kitchen and warehouse spaces into a modular research laboratory, and new supporting office space. A new central mechanical-equipment plant supports the multi-phase build-out and is designed for expansion to serve future build-out loads.The MEP plant supplements existing mechanical and electrical systems, creating a more robust utility infrastructure while supporting the “clean” and “soiled” air environments of the vivarium facility. 

McCownGordon did an outstanding job coordinating the work of our complex project and fast-track schedule. I was particularly pleased with their willingness to assure the project stayed on track. The team worked collaboratively with the architect to develop creative solutions keeping our best interest in the forefront.
