The basement of Kansas City's Union Station with over 24,000 square feet of area was a large piece of unleased real estate in downtown Kansas City. Although an extensive renovation took place in 1996 nothing was done to upgrade the basement from the original construction which was completed in 1914. So when $5,000,000 was raised to convert this space into a traveling exhibit space BGR Consulting Engineers was hired to provide the design to turn this space into a well lit and ventilated city attraction. The capacity of the existing HVAC, plumbing and power systems had to be researched to determine if this new space could be supported with the existing infrastructure. Working with the building's onsite personal, BGR Consulting Engineers obtained the insight on where connections could be made to existing systems for all new lighting, power, heating, air-conditioning and ventilation.
