SYNLawn Kansas City Enhances Burns & McDonnell Campus with New Sports Amenities

Matt Wagner Commercial Projects

Kansas City, MO — Burns & McDonnell, the full-service engineering, architecture, construction, environmental, and consulting solutions firm, hired SYNLawn Kansas City to help expand the employee amenities available at the campus of their Kansas City headquarters with the installation of a bocce ball court and a golf putting green.

Developing a Courtyard Entertainment Area for Employees & Clients

Burns & McDonnell added three large buildings to the vast campus of their Kansas City headquarters. They wanted to utilize the courtyard area in the center of these buildings by developing an entertainment area to be used by employees, as well as visiting clients.

The project was designed around the highest-quality artificial grass on the market and installed by the experts at SYNLawn Kansas City, which is led by owner, Angelo Grego. Burns & McDonnell needed an artificial turf that could withstand the heat generated by the reflective glass of the new buildings, so SYNLawn Kansas installed 27,990 square feet of SYNRye 244[1], which is known for its extreme reliability and performance over the years.

To make this an area for entertaining, SYNLawn Kansas City also installed a 5-hole golf putting green and a bocce ball court. The team used 3,150 square feet of Classic Pitch putting green turf and 2,400 square feet of SYNBermuda synthetic grass for landscaping, as well as 30 super sacks of USGreenTech’s Safeshell organic infill.

What made this project extra special was that SYNLawn Kansas City was selected to develop this entertainment area by a company that could have built it themselves. However, they were impressed with the expertise of SYNLawn Kansas City, and the previous commercial installations they worked on, so they put their trust in the team to bring their vision to life.

Overcoming Installation Challenges

The sheer size of the campus was one of the main installation challenges the SYNLawn Kansas City team had to overcome. Since the courtyard entertainment area is located in the center of the three new buildings, the materials had to be brought in from the team’s vehicles via a long haul. Additionally, the scope of this project included providing concrete curbs, a tight deadline, and massive quantities of building materials.

The expertise of SYNLawn Kansas City’s team allowed them to overcome challenges they faced in order to satisfy the client by bringing their vision to life. The employees and clients of Burns & McDonnell will be able to enjoy this new employee amenity for many years to come.
