KC Restoration (KCR) completed many projects during 2022 that beautified our community. Several metal, wood, stone, and exterior surfaces were refinished and restored around the Kansas City area, adding value and appeal to many properties. While it was a tough choice, our team decided the work performed at the University of Missouri-Kansas City (UMKC) campus was our project of the year!

UMKC got its start in 1930 with a gift from William Volker, a man fondly remembered for his generosity. It is the largest comprehensive, fully accredited university in the Kansas City area. Students come from all 50 states and over 85 countries, enriching our community with diverse perspectives. UMKC is at the heart of a thriving urban area, and the city’s life and energy influence everything happening on campus.

The UMKC campuses had many metal plaques, monuments, and statues that needed restoration. Many years of harsh weather, dirt and other outdoor contaminants stained many of the campus’s metal surfaces. KCR technicians were able to deep clean, patina, wax, and buff to restore the beauty and luster to all these important tributes to esteemed individuals.

Just in time for the 100th anniversary of Henry Bloch’s birth, the KCR team refinished the statues of Marion and Henry Bloch. The bronze statues adorn the newly renovated Bloch School of Management. The UMKC Health Science campus also received beautification with our exterior deep cleaning and restoration services. The quad courtyard area where students study, relax or attend events needed some improvements. The KCR team has worked hard to restore handrails, statues, and plaques to make the area more inviting to students and visitors.

KCR was able to dramatically improve the appearance of the Health Science and Volker campuses with successful metal restoration services. We celebrate the steps we take to fulfill our mission of beautifying and preserving Kansas City and adding value to every project and person we work with.
