In 1898, when Clinton S. Burns and Robert E. McDonnell, both Stanford engineering graduates, were looking for somewhere to site their consulting firm, they chose Kansas City, Missouri, believing the region had a need for sustainable water and energy infrastructure. Today, that legacy of energy expertise persists. Burns & McDonnell, wholly owned by its 5,400 employees, is one of the largest engineering and construction firms

serving the utility infrastructure industry. In the Engineering News-Record’s Top 500 Design Firms rankings, Burns & McDonnell was ranked no. 1 in the Electrical Power category, while at the same time Fortune’s 2016 list of 100 Best Companies to Work For ranked Burns & McDonnell no.16. Burns & McDonnell’s specialized OnSite Energy and Power Group focuses solely on district energy systems. The team has

worked on CHP plants everywhere from office buildings to airports, ranging in size from 500kW to 100MW. “Resiliency and efficiency are huge items for our clients,” says Scott Clark, Vice President and General Manager at Burns & McDonnell, who leads the OnSite Energy and Power Group. “We do integrated design-build district energy projects nationally, working coastto-coast from five different locations.”
