Cerner Center, Cerner WHQ Campus [North Kansas City, MO] : Cerner Center is a grand outdoor space that extends from the new WHQ to the Associate Center and Clinic.   This contemporary campus quadrangle provides visual and physical linkage between numerous buildings and facilities, accommodates a range of daily activities and special events, and serves as the hub of this 88-acre corporate campus.

Components include a convenient and inviting WHQ vehicular/pedestrian drop-off zone; a dining courtyard with terraced seating spaces integrated with a dynamic cascading fountain; a terraced lawn with an amphitheater at the terminus; and well-defined pedestrian walkways.      

Rick Howell and Brett Payton led the design, construction document, and construction administration phases of this project while working with GEA.
