And they've just begun construction on their latest project: a $3 million energy-efficient renovation of a building at 50th and Prospect. The new center will house the organization's headquarters, and provide office space and training for about a dozen small-time contractors at a time. The contractor incubator will be the first of its kind in the Kansas City area.</p> Mon, 23 Jan 2012 18:18:20 +0000 Sylvia Maria Gross 11311 at http://kcur.org Incubator Planned For Small-Time Contractors On Prospect
