Kan. firm gets Chiefs camp contract

ST. JOSEPH, Mo. (AP) - A Kansas company has been selected to build the Kansas City Chiefs' indoor practice facility at Missouri Western State University.

Crossland Construction, Columbus, Kan., submitted a base bid of $9.4 million, the lowest of 14 general contractors competing for the building project.

Jeff Ellison, lead architect on the project, recommended to Western's governing board to accept 7 of 8 alternate bids Crossland submitted, which brings the total to $10.3 million.

The St. Joseph News-Press reported that all seven members of the Board of Governors voted Friday in a telephone poll to award the project to Crossland. The Board of Governors meet Thursday and will ratify the decision then.

The $13.7 million total project cost is being paid for by city, county and Chiefs' funding. Construction is slated to begin July 1 and expected to be completed by July 5, 2010.
