Black & Veatch on Tuesday will formally open the Rodman Innovation Pavilion, which is part of a $60 million renovation and expansion of the engineering firm’s Overland Park headquarters at 11401 Lamar Ave.
The pavilion, honoring former chief executive Len Rodman, has a grass roof and includes other renewable energy features such as solar panels, and a geothermal field for cooling the building.
Inside the pavilion, there is an 80-inch interactive touch panel display that highlights the company’s global operations and projects.
The company has more than 10,000 employees in more than 100 offices worldwide.
Never miss a local story.
Kansas. Gov. Sam Brownback and other state and local officials are expected to attend Black & Veatch’s dedication ceremony.
