Thomas J. Corso is vice president of operations for MC Lioness Realty Group, LLC, Kansas City, MO, the property and facilities manager. "Cathedral Square," he explained, "is a revitalization development to resurrect downtown's west side with Cathedral Square and a number of other projects." MC Lioness is property manager for 10 million sq ft of buildings in metropolitan Kansas City, 4 million sq ft of them clustered in the downtown area.
Fire protection for the square itself was a negotiated D-B project with Siemens Fire Safety (Florham Park, NJ) with application and contract service work through the Siemens Kansas City branch office. "A service contract, including regular inspections and job training, is part of the agreement," noted Stephen Moore, Siemens service sales representative.
