in Companies/News

Together with the Department of Veterans Affairs representatives, the architect and site construction workers, Poettker Construction Company celebrated the steel topping out milestone at the Jefferson Barracks VA Engineering Warehouse during a ceremony on September 7, 2017.

“Thank you to all the team members who have helped us reach this project milestone!  The Poettker Team is honored to collaborate with the VA, Christner, and our business partners to create a new facility for the VA’s warehouse, engineering, and maintenance operations,” said Keith Poettker, president of Poettker Construction.

The $30.9 million facility will consolidate the VA’s warehouse, engineering, and maintenance operations into one location, creating the future expansion space needed for the adjacent national cemetery.  The exterior façade features both precast concrete and brick masonry to complement the neighboring buildings.

Sustainable construction is a top priority with a goal to achieve LEED Silver certification.  To date, more than 95% of the construction waste has been recycled.

Our team also celebrated the project’s safety milestone, commemorating 365 calendar days without a lost-time incident.

Christner of St. Louis designed this facility.

Construction is currently on schedule with completion expected in Fall 2018.

Founded in 1980, Poettker Construction is a second generation family-owned and veteran-owned business that specializes in construction management, design/build, and general contracting services with an emphasis to exceed the client’s expectations.

Poettker Construction Company, in partnership with HSHS St. Joseph’s Hospital Breese, sponsored a safety merit badge clinic for the Boy Scouts of America Greater St. Louis Area Council on Saturday, June 10, 2017.

Twenty-five Scouts from nine counties across Illinois and Missouri participated in the clinic to learn how to apply safety techniques used on construction sites to home and community settings.  Poettker’s Corporate Safety Manager and Eagle Scout, Charles Wilson, and Corporate Compliance Officer, Dave Lammers, led the clinic which featured interactive discussion about:

  • utilizing Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) in everyday activities including mowing and weed eating the lawn;
  • establishing proper planning techniques and making informed choices to help prevent accidents;
  • sketching individual home egress plans to inform their families of emergency exit strategies; and
  • discussing safety careers and training opportunities.

The clinic closed with a guided tour of the HSHS St. Joseph’s Hospital Breese Outpatient Prep-Recovery project.  This $9.5 million project features an addition to the outpatient surgery preparation and recovery areas, a new ambulance garage, and renovations to the hospital’s Emergency Department.

Clinic participation counted toward merit badge credit ultimately needed to reach the rank of Eagle Scout.

“Thank you to all the Boy Scouts and families who participated in this safety merit badge clinic.  Poettker Construction enjoyed this opportunity to show the Boy Scouts how safety techniques utilized on construction sites can be incorporated into everyday life,” said Wilson.

Boy Scouts Senior Development Director James Nolan presented Poettker Construction with a commemorative plaque acknowledging their commitment to the Boy Scouts.
