Office Building and Retail
Cerner Trails Campus Phases 1 & 2

JE Dunn Construction selected MMC Contractors as the design-assist plumbing and mechanical contractor on the first two phases of the new Cerner Innovation Campus project. The entire 290-acre site has a $4.45 billion budget and a 10 year development plan that includes 4.7 million square feet of space in 16 buildings, slated to be constructed in 16 phases. When complete, the campus will accommodate approximately 16,000 Cerner employees. Campus plans include two (2) data centers, an employee child care, an employee health clinic and approximately 370,000 SF of retail space for restaurants, stores and a hotel.

Phases 1 & 2 include the first two office towers and the Connector. Tower 1, called the South Tower, is a 450,000 SF, 12-story Class A office structure which includes the central utility plant, a 90,000 SF food service area, dining rooms and training labs in addition to employee offices. The Central Plant has a 2,600 ton cooling capacity and 28,000 MBH heating input and will support both Tower 1 & 2. The Connector joins Tower 1 and Tower 2 making them self-sufficient. Tower 2, the North Tower, is a 9-story Class A office structure that includes an employee pharmacy, employee gym and testing labs for client feedback as well as employee offices. Both towers were completed by December 2016.

Additionally, The Link has been included in the initial phases of the Innovation Campus development project. The Link is open to the kitchen area and provides dining space as well as large conference space for the complex. The Link was completed in March 2017.

Awarded in February 2015, prefabrication of the central plant piping, plumbing systems, pipe hangers and much more, in our Kansas City fabrication shop, allowed the project to remain on schedule.
