Janet K. Meyer Miller Terrace, Kansas City Art Institute

2013 ABC Heart of America Excellence in Construction Award

The Kansas City Art Institute “Janet K. Meyer Miller Terrace” is a project designed to enhance the 6,500 SF plaza area located in the heart of the Kansas City Art Institute (KCAI).  The newly designed patio area is centrally located between many of the historic KCAI classroom buildings. The unique features and lighting in this area create the perfect study space for students regardless of the time of day.

The patio centers around the “Wallace Fountain”, a symbol of Paris, France, where the historical fountain originated. The lighting, landscaping, and patio furniture all complete this space to provide an environment ideal for students.

The project had a short construction schedule as the project was to be completed while the students were on summer break.  Access to the project was confined to the space in between existing historic structures, forcing smaller than normal construction equipment to be used on the project.  Installation of the “Wallace Fountain” proved to be difficult as the drinking fountain weighed 1,200 pounds and was installed in the middle of the project.   Now the students have a courtyard to enjoy for generations to come.

Contract Price: $361,199
