Burns & McDonnell will make a foray into commercial construction thanks to a $20 million contract to renovate 50 Hy-Vee supermarkets in Missouri and six other states. The deal calls for the creation of a new restaurant concept in the stores that includes a full-service menu and cocktails.

The Kansas City-based engineering firm is better known for projects like power plants and large-scale public works initiatives, but it’s making a move into commercial construction, led by Greg Carlson, who joined the firm in June as director of global facilities construction.
