The Kansas City IISE group had the opportunity to see a variety of airplanes up close at this MRO operation at the Aviation Technical Services facility. It was impressive to hear, see and think about what all goes into the maintenance, overhaul and repair of an airplane. The team also got a great historic overview of how and why the facility was built initially for TWA.
Join IISE this Thursday for a showing of Dream Big: Engineering Our World
In partnership with American Society of Civil Engineers and narrated by Academy Award® winner Jeff Bridges, Dream Big: Engineering Our World is a first of its kind film for IMAX® and giant screen theatres that will transform how we think about engineering. From the Great Wall of China and the world’s tallest buildings, to underwater robots, solar cars and smart, sustainable cities, Dream Big celebrates the human ingenuity behind engineering marvels big and small, and reveals the heart that drives engineers to create better lives for people around the world. Filmmaker Greg MacGillivray explores the human ingenuity behind engineering marvels — big and small — and reveals the heart that drives engineers to create better lives for people around the world.

Many of us have heard of Boulevard Brewing Company and may have been fortunate enough to tour their facility. However have you heard what Boulevard has been up to lately?
Founded by John McDonald in 1989, Boulevard has rapidly become one of the “largest specialty brewers” in the Midwest. To keep up with the growing demand of their product, Boulevard expanded their brewing capacity to 600,000 barrels in 2006—a huge increase over the 6,000 barrel capacity in John McDonald’s original business plan! With their latest 70,000 square foot building, Boulevard has also served as a model of sustainable and urban architecture and engineering while also taking great efforts to promote sustainable business practices. As they have looked for ways to reduce their environmental impact—programs such as Ripple Glass have been born.
Join us for a tour evaluating this rising manufacturing facility of Kansas City.
