Wiegmann Associates has begun work on The Sheridan Assisted Living facilities in Sunset Hills, Chesterfield and Creve Coeur. Wiegmann is the engineer of record and installing contractor for HVAC and Building Automation Systems, and is providing on-site project management for the Design/Build project. Senior Lifestyle Corporation, based in Chicago, is developing the projects, which have a combined completion value of $65 million.
Wiegmann is installing high-efficiency HVAC systems that reduce first cost and improve humidity control and sound levels while increasing usable interior space and reducing long-term maintenance costs. Wiegmann also is installing a Building Automation System in each facility. Wiegmann’s HVAC solutions will save $25,000 per year in energy costs across the three facilities as compared to the original design.
Construction has begun on all three facilities. The $17 million, 69,000-square-foot, 84-apartment The Sheridan at Laumeier Park in Sunset Hills and the $17 million, 42,000-square-foot, 53-apartment The Sheridan at Creve Coeur are scheduled for completion in early 2017. The $31 million, 84,000-square-foot, 91-apartment The Sheridan at Chesterfield is scheduled to open next summer.
The facilities combined will create more than 425 construction jobs and 295 permanent jobs. Brinkmann Constructors is the general contractor.
The projects are a joint venture of Bob Brinkmann, founder of Brinkmann Constructors, and Senior Lifestyle, operator of senior living facilities across the United States.
Wiegmann Associates is a St. Louis-based mechanical contractor serving the commercial, industrial and institutional markets, and a national leader in design/build HVAC projects.
