About Us

At Home and Beyond

PublicWay is a product of Burns & McDonnell, a full-service engineering, architecture, construction, environmental and consulting solutions firm based in Kansas City, Mo. Burns & McDonnell was founded in Kansas City in 1898 and has grown to more than 30 offices worldwide. With the multidisciplinary experience of engineering, architecture, construction and technical professionals, Burns & McDonnell plans, designs, permits, constructs and manages facilities with one mission in mind — to make our clients successful.

PublicWay’s first major application has been to benefit our hometown of Kansas City, Mo., as it embarked on an Overflow Control Program developed to meet regulatory requirements related to reducing overflows from the combined sewer system and preventing overflows from the separate sewer system. The Overflow Control Program will meet those objectives over a 25-year time period by completing a planned list of capital improvements, requiring extensive coordination among city departments, outside utilities, contractors and citizens.
