An underground, five-level parking garage was constructed beneath the building.  

Capital Electric Construction's scope of work included feeder rough-in for KCP&L utility switchgear, transformer vault underground conduits, emergency and normal power bus-way risers, generators and paralleling switchgear, UPS systems, and fire alarm and security wiring. Capital Electric Construction installed 15,000 lighting fixtures, 57 miles of conduit and 327 miles of wiring.
