Clark, Edgemoor Celebrate Milestone on The University of Kansas Central District Development's P3 Project

LAWRENCE, KS – Last month, The University of Kansas Central District Development team completed the 285,000 square-foot Integrated Sciences Building's (ISB) steel structure. The Central District Development project is a public-private partnership with Clark affiliate Edgemoor Infrastructure & Real Estate as the developer, and Clark/McCownGordon, A Joint Venture, as the design-builder. 
The University of Kansas (KU) officials joined the project team, and more than 450 construction workers, to celebrate the achievement with a beam-signing ceremony. Chancellor Bernadette Gray-Little addressed attendees at the event, which was open to the public. To conclude the event, Chancellor Gray-Little signaled the crane operator to hoist the final beam, which was marked with the university’s mascot and KU and United States flags, into place. 
The ISB is the first building in The University of Kansas campus’ master plan to top out. The $350 million development plan also includes a 26,500 square-foot student union building, a 2,000-space parking garage, and a utility plant to support the new facilities.
With the ISB topped out, the team is focused on installing the building envelope, erecting the student union structure, and installing equipment to complete the Central Utility Plant.
