Cornell Helps Put a New Face on an aging KCP&L Property
The KCP&L Fleet and Maintenance building, located on the corner of Front Street and Chouteau Trafficway, has for decades been the site of tough duty, thousands of vehicles and maintenance projects had taken a toll on the facility.
The Fleet and Maintenance building had a brick façade that, after decades, was really starting to show its age. KCP&L was looking for a viable and cost efficient solution and Cornell worked closely with the project architects and engineers to come up with a creative way to stabilize the aging brick facade and give the facility a fresh look.
The solution? 16 gauge zee purlins around the entire perimeter of the building. Once the solution was agreed upon, Cornell’s team of skilled professionals installed the zee purlins to stabilize the brick facade. Once stabilization was complete, the building really started to transform as Cornell installed two colors of Dri-Design wall panels on the entire façade of the building.
This project was also significant in that it was put out to bid with a fast track schedule. Cornell worked within this tight time frame to complete the project with a few weeks to spare.
Another example of Cornell’s commitment to quality and professionalism.
