25 Under 25® Selects FSC, Inc. for 2018 Class of Honorees

Thinking Bigger's 25 Under 25 Award Winners RevealedFSC, Inc. has just been recognized as one of Kansas City’s best small businesses. It’s one of the winners of the 2018 25 Under 25® Awards.

Hosted by Thinking Bigger Business Media, the awards are presented to 25 local businesses with fewer than 25 employees. Each winner has demonstrated financial strength, the ability to overcome adversity and challenges, a commitment to the community and a powerful company vision.

“Small businesses are a powerful, but often overlooked force in Kansas City,” said Kelly Scanlon, CEO of Thinking Bigger Business Media and the creator of 25 Under 25®. “Together, these companies employ thousands upon thousands of people, deliver innovative products and services, and help support our government, schools, nonprofits and other public resources. Of course, most of our winners are too humble and too busy to brag about their contributions. But it’s a story that needs to be told. The 25 Under 25® Awards are proud to celebrate the important service of small businesses.”

An independent panel of judges consisting of area business leaders chooses the winning companies. A complete list of winners can be found at www.25under25.com

This is the 17th year for 25 Under 25®. This year’s honorees will be recognized during the annual 25 Under 25 Gala on Saturday, Feb. 24, 2018, at the Downtown Marriott’s Muehlebach Hotel. Joe and Judy Roetheli, founders of S&M NuTec LLC and creators of Greenies pet treats, will receive the Entrepreneurial Legacy Award, which pays tribute to leaders who have made a lasting impact on KC’s business community.  Tickets for the gala will go on sale Jan. 1 at www.25under25.com.

OUT with the OLD and in with the “VERTICAL NEIGHBORHOOD”!

Commerce Tower is an iconic downtown landmark, which has housed many generations of the Kansas City workforce since 1965. It was one of many high-rise office buildings that sat vacant for years, but new life has been breathed into the building.

Our MEP division is proud to be a part of the team that helped bring the vision for the new Commerce Tower to fruition. Last month, it reopened its doors as the “vertical neighborhood” that its owners, architects and design team envisioned, including 355 apartments and over 100,000 square feet of commercial space.


INSIDE OR OUTSIDE? BOTH!

Home of Super Bowl LIII, the Mercedes Benz Stadium, home of the Atlanta Falcons, opened its doors, and ceiling, this past August. Completing this mammoth project was a team effort with our code department playing a key role where we provided code and life safety services. The new stadium includes a 14-acre roof, with eight retractable “petals” in the center, which allow light to filter into the stadium in the same way light enters the ancient Pantheon in Rome, Italy. If you happen to find yourself in the neighborhood, it would be a shame not stop in a check out this new “stadium of the future”. Note: Super Bowl LIII will be played in 2019. The 2018 Super Bowl, will be played at the U.S. Bank Stadium in Minnesota. (Another project we provided full code consulting services for!)


Greetings from Bhopal, India!

Since 2006, we have had the advantage of being able to work around-the-clock, and it’s all because of our production office in Bhopal! Our U.S. office and our India office work as a tag-team. At the end of the work day in the U.S., we send our drawings to Bhopal and they continue working where we left off; at the end of Bhopal’s work day, the drawings are sent back to the U.S. and this process continues until the project reaches completion.

The teamwork between the two offices has allowed us to take-on larger projects with shorter schedules, and to offer our services to a wider variety of clients.
