GBA provided structural engineering design for the approximately 72,000 square feet building. Keri McGill, GBA’s project manager, enjoyed working with everyone at the City of Olathe on the project as well as the entire design and construction team. “Working on the building’s structural design with Kerry Newman and Brian Garvey at SFS Architecture was a great experience and we are looking forward to working with the same design team on the Excelsior Springs (MO) Community Center,” McGill said.
