AECOM-led partnership says it’s ready to work on KCI as Edgemoor’s deal teeters

The AECOM-led KCI Partnership, the runner-up behind Edgemoor Infrastructure & Real Estate during this year’s bidding process for a new terminal at Kansas City International Airport, said that it’s ready to do work on the $1 billion project.

“There is no time for delay,” KCI Partnership said in a statement. “We anxiously await the next steps required by the City Council to advance this project expeditiously.”

The KCI Partnership statement came Friday, one day after a supermajority of the Kansas City Council rejected a proposed memorandum of understanding between the city and Edgemoor.
