Burns & McDonnell was founded in 1898 by two new Stanford University engineering graduates — Clinton S. Burns and Robert E. McDonnell — in Kansas City to provide the most potential clients in a 200-mile radius for cities and towns in need of water and power systems to support growth.

The firm was built on a client-first culture — working to make clients successful — up to a pivotal moment in 1985, when a small band of Burns & McDonnell employees risked their personal finances to secure a loan to buy the firm from Armco Steel, which had purchased the company in 1971.

Today, the employee-owners draw strength from their sense of perseverance, dedication and ownership. The firm is constantly evolving with the world around us, knowing that seemingly ordinary projects lead to extraordinary opportunities to Create Amazing.
