Kansas City has received four proposals in the bidding process to design, build and finance of a new single terminal at Kansas City International Airport under P3 scheme.

Burns & McDonnell, AECOM, Edgemoor Infrastructure & Real Estate and BlueScope Construction have all met Kansas City’s deadline for proposals on the airport project. Namely the bidding teams comprise:

  • Burns & McDonnell team: Burns & McDonnell, Americo Life Inc., Corgan Architects.
  • KCI Partnership: AECOM and Turner Construction.
  • Edgemoor Infrastructure & Real Estate: Edgemoor, Clarkson Construction and Weitz Company.
  • BlueScope Construction team: BlueScope Construction, Jones Lang LaSalle.

Now each company has until August 10 to submit the details of how they plan to finance the US$1 billion project.

In mid June, Kansas City extended the deadline for the RFP process. Under the revised request for proposals, bidders had until July 27 to submit qualifications and designs and another 15 days to submit financing details.  

As we reported in mid May, Kansas City-based engineering firm Burns & McDonnell submitted a proposal to partner with Kansas City and lead a team of private investors, such as Americo Life, Inc.  to privately finance the project. 

Part of the proposal was that the firm would get an exclusive arrangement with the city to provide the design and come up with a guaranteed maximum price. This would lead to other firms not having access to make their own offer, nor would the city request bids, which araised some controversy

With the opening of the bidding process, more firms expressed interest in competing for the project, and other bids have been accepted.

The project involves a 750,000-square-foot terminal with 35 gates but expandable to 42, and a parking garage with at least 6,500 spaces. 

Karl Reichelt, project executive for KCI Partnership, said:

“Our proposal not only checks all the boxes required by Kansas City, but also showcases our team’s proven design, construction and financing of airport projects balanced with global and local capabilities, experience and people. We will prove that KCI Partnership is a serious, integrated team uniquely qualified to deliver.”
