Developer Steven Karbank called and asked Tim Jonkman to meet him at 2000 Shawnee Mission Parkway to discuss a new renovation project. During the meeting Steve explained to Tim his plans but neither could refuse the breathtaking views from almost every direction of the existing building. So they decided to instead remove all the load bearing brick and block exterior and to construct and install a new curtain wall to support the building and a new 4th floor. This required Jonkman Construction to reinforce the entire structural system and the 4th floor was built with cantilevered exterior patios. The building immediately came to life and Karbank Real Estate Company relocated their Kansas City headquarters to this new Mission Woods, Kansas location.
The 36,766 square foot 4-story building’s mid-century appeal, upgraded and modernized appearance and functionality uses Capstone micro turbines to produce most of the building’s electrical needs and to capture the waste heat to power the building’s snow melt system. Waste heat in the summer is turned into cooling through an absorption chiller providing for a majority of the building’s cooling needs.
Now renamed The Barney Building, after Karbank Real Estate Company’s founder, Barney Karbank, achieved LEED® GOLD certification (core and shell) by the U.S. Green Building Council in 2014, along with numerous other local and regional awards.
• LEED® Gold Certification
• 2015 Capstone Award (office)
