Edgemoor Infrastructure and Real Estate, a subsidiary of Clark Construction Group out of Bethesda, Maryland, is assembling a team inclined to submit a proposal for the Kansas City International Airport single terminal project.
As part of its team, Edgemoor, along with Clark, has included Des Moines, Iowa, contractor Weitz Company and Kansas City company Clarkson Construction.
The presence of a third consortium of companies hoping to land the KCI project ramps up competition, and the number of candidates the Kansas City Council will have to choose from in August for the single-terminal project.
Representatives from Edgemoor, Weitz Company and Clarkson Construction were gathered at KCI’s Terminal A on Tuesday for a tour with city staffers and other companies interested in submitting a proposal for the roughly $1 billion project.
Meanwhile, engineering firm Burns & McDonnell said Tuesday it plans to begin work on a single-terminal project at KCI immediately after a Nov. 7 election — that is, if the Kansas City Council and voters pick the engineering firm to do the job.
The final deadline for proposals is Aug. 10, which leaves the city council two weeks to pick a proposal before an Aug. 24 deadline to put a question to voters on Nov. 7.
