Ross & Baruzzini, a St. Louis-based international design, consulting and engineering firm, has opened a Kansas City regional office at 6811 Shawnee Mission Parkway, Suite 201, in Overland Park, Kansas. The new office – the firm’s 12th in the U.S. – strengthens its network of services and affirms its commitment to providing local delivery to an expanding client base.
The new office is the second Ross & Baruzzini has opened in the Midwest in the past six months. In August, 2016, the 265-person firm announced the opening of an office in Chicago through the acquisition of Mitchell Planning and Associates. Posting more than $40 million in sales, 2016 was the company’s most successful year in its 64-year history.
“We are motivated to continue on the growth trajectory that has more than doubled the size of our firm in the past five years,” remarked Bill Overturf, III president of Ross & Baruzzini. “Growth enables us to provide new leadership opportunities for individuals to step up in our organization and to attract and retain truly great people. Kansas City, where we enjoy a number of close client relationships, is a natural next step.”
Leading the office is Dan Phelan, P.E., LEED AP BD+C, a project manager and senior mechanical engineer who has been with Ross & Baruzzini for nearly 10 years. Phelan has led projects for clients in the government, higher education, healthcare and research sectors. In addition to leadership qualities, he has deep technical skills focused on energy-saving retrofit projects and sustainable design techniques.
“It gives me great pleasure to lead the Ross & Baruzzini Kansas City office,” said Phelan. “I am honored and excited to be part of this new growth initiative. The expansion will help us enhance relationships with clients in the region and engage new clients across multiple markets.”
The phone number of the new office is 913.258.5026.
