Beyond Self Storage Facilities Under Construction in Metro St. Louis Area

in Companies/News

Construction is underway on two of the largest self-storage facilities in the St. Louis area, both of which are scheduled to open early summer 2017. Beyond Self Storage at McCausland in St. Louis and Beyond Self Storage at Chesterfield will be comprised of more than 100,000 SF each, with drive-thru loading areas, and they are being developed and operated by NorthPoint Development, who launched the Beyond Self Storage brand and a multi-facility development initiative in February 2016.

“We’re familiar with Metro St. Louis and we think there’s a real need for state-of-the-art self-storage” said Ben Hagedorn, Director of Self-Storage Operations for NorthPoint Development. “We’re very excited to be opening two Beyond Self Storage locations in the area and we hope to have a third project soon.”

Beyond Self Storage at McCausland will serve residents and businesses in Maplewood, Western St. Louis City, Brentwood, and Richmond Heights, as well as students from Washington University (Wash U), while the Chesterfield location is right down the road from Taubman Prestige Outlets and is very convenient for local residents and businesses, with over 100,000 cars passing on I-64 every day.

“The McCausland Ave. site was a former quarry and long-time vacant property at the busy Manchester Rd. intersection – we were literally digging up trash during site preparation, and we are pleased to see it transformed into a $10 million facility,” said Hagedorn. “Chesterfield is a wonderful community and we’re happy to offer a Class A facility in the market.”

Beyond Self Storage facilities feature a number of amenities that will distinguish them from other self-storage facilities in the area, including a drive-thru loading area with complimentary carts & dollies, 100% climate control (including drive-thru), state-of-the-art security, including computerized access control, digital video recorded cameras and motion-detected lighting, a business center with conference table, workstations, printer/copier and free Wi-Fi, online rentals and a self-service kiosk, a complete line of moving & packing supplies, and professional on-site management.

The Korte Company Begins Work On 188,000 Square Foot Manufacturing Facility For Knapheide In Quincy, Illinois

in Companies/News

Construction is scheduled to begin in March on a new 188,000 square manufacturing facility for The Knapheide Manufacturing Co. in Quincy, Illinois. The Korte Company was awarded the design-build contract earlier this year.

The new plant will be located directly south of the company’s existing 480,000-square-foot manufacturing facility, which was originally constructed by The Korte Company in 1995.

When completed in early 2018, the expansion is expected to create 250 new positions, including manufacturing, installation, and various support roles.

Headquartered in Quincy, Illinois, The Knapheide Manufacturing Company is a family-owned business established in 1848.  For six generations, Knapheide has provided customers with high-quality, work-ready transportation solutions.  More work vehicles on the road today carry the Knapheide name than any other manufacturer.

Knapheide partners and customers include truck and van distributors, commercial dealers, commercial fleets, fleet management companies, government entities, utilities, and end-users across a wide range of vocational segments.

 

HDA Architects Completes Dramatic New Event Space in Grand Center

in Companies/News

HDA Architects recently completed Anew (A Rooftop Event Space for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Eastern Missouri). The $3.7 million project is in the heart of St. Louis’ Grand Center and has a rooftop restaurant that is 4,250 square feet and features a glass-enclosed dining room, a 10-seat bar and an outdoor terrace.

“Conceived as a gathering space to promote and cultivate relationships, the ANEW Rooftop is a modern addition perched atop the historical Woolworth building, now owned and operated by Big Brothers Big Sisters of Eastern Missouri. The stout, Art Deco styled masonry of the existing building provides a wonderful contrast to the minimalist and light aesthetic of the rooftop. This old/new juxtaposition creates an exciting dynamic, exemplary of the Grand Center district.”​

The Big Brother Big Sisters Rooftop project consists of a 3,000 SF retail space, a 4,250 SF rooftop space with a 2,250 SF terrace. Sitting atop the existing Big Brothers Big Sisters offices (previously the Woolworths Building) at Grand and Olive, the new addition is a sleek, modern compliment to the existing architecture. Folded planes of wood, glass and metal create a dynamic form that is purposefully perched to create a moment of drama by overhanging the existing building. Floor to ceiling glazing helps visually extend the interior space outward to the roof terrace and views beyond. The retail space on the ground floor provides the connection from the ground to the rooftop and can be programmed as an event space, café / restaurant, or exhibition space.

There were many challenges with this project. Besides the difficulties of building on the roof of an existing building, the greatest challenge was working over the existing structure of the building. During the Woolworth Building’s previous 2007 renovation, many of the building columns were removed to accommodate the theater needs of the Kranzberg Arts Center. Thus, the position and layout of the building is driven by the locations of the remaining columns capable of carrying the new roof loads to the ground.

Tarlton Corp. Completes New Softball Stadium at University of Missouri

in Companies/Homepage Primary/News

Tarlton Corp., a St. Louis-based general contracting and construction management firm, completed construction on a new softball stadium for the Missouri Tigers softball team at University of Missouri, in Columbia.

To celebrate its new home and usher in the spring softball season, the team hosted the 2017 Mizzou Tournament on March 3, 4 and 5, welcoming top talent from around the country at the new stadium. Situated in the Mizzou Sports Park, the facility is east of Hearnes Center and visible from Stadium Boulevard. It replaces University Field.

Tarlton, which served as construction manager for the $17.5 million project financed primarily by private gifts, also provided preconstruction services. The team constructed the 20,000-square-foot facility on what was a commuter parking lot, redeveloping and transforming the space into the new softball stadium that provides fans with a full-view concourse, outfield plaza and new surface parking lot with more than 500 spaces. Work was completed March 2 and began March 1, 2016, following construction of a separate, nearby university parking lot.

The structural steel-framed building stands on a concrete foundation with a concrete slab and metal deck and aluminum grandstands. It includes a press box, concessions, heated dugouts, a locker room with video capabilities and meeting room for coaches. The venue also features lawn seating on a berm beyond the outfield wall for additional spectators.

Safety during construction was paramount, according to Cameron Denison, Tarlton senior project manager, and the project logged no recordable safety incidents. “The team demonstrated a high level of commitment to project safety, as the construction site was situated in the middle of the parking area used for home basketball and football games,” Denison said. “We worked closely with the university’s Department of Intercollegiate Athletics to secure the site and ensure safety for pedestrians and motorists attending other sporting events.”

In addition to Denison, the Tarlton team also included Matt Pfund, project executive; John Doerr, project director; Garett Plotts, P.E., senior project engineer; and Chad Hartman, project superintendent. Lempka Edson Architects in Overland Park, Kan., was project architect.

The softball stadium is Tarlton’s second project on the Columbia campus. The firm recently completed an expansion and renovations to Lafferre Hall, home of the university’s College of Engineering.

In business since 1946, Tarlton Corp. is a WBENC-Certified Women’s Business Enterprise that completes projects for wide-ranging clients in the commercial, life sciences, health care, institutional, power and industrial markets, also providing special expertise in concrete construction and restoration as well as hydro excavation and industrial vacuum services.

Jim Butler Unveils New Facility for Alfa Romeo, Maserati

in Companies/News

A sleek new building in Maplewood is now home to two Italian luxury dealerships: Jim Butler Alfa Romeo and Jim Butler Maserati. The new 14,800-square foot, glass-walled structure opened in early March, offering high-performance luxury cars backed by Jim Butler’s Black Tie Concierge Sales and Service.

The dealerships had been temporarily located at Jim Butler Auto Plaza in Crestwood while construction was underway for the new facility.

“Our goal is to provide the best luxury experience that drivers will find in St. Louis,” said Brad Sowers, CEO of Jim Butler Auto Group. “The time is right for people to discover the thrill of being behind the wheel of an Italian luxury car. There’s just nothing like it.”

The Italian flair for design and attention to detail offered by these two brands are simply unmatched among luxury cars, Sowers added. The two auto makers offer models ranging from sports cars to mid-size luxury sedans to high performance luxury SUVs.

Jim Butler launched its Maserati dealership in Spring 2015 at a temporary location in Crestwood, next to Jim Butler Auto Plaza.  The dealer began offering Alfa Romeo models at that location in January.

The new location will also offer a large selection of pre-owned cars of all makes and models. The dealership will service all makes and models and will coordinate warranty work with appropriate dealerships.

The building, designed by M2 Architecture Studio and built by Hensley Construction, places visual emphasis on the tall, glass showroom as the jewel case, highlighting the cars within as sparkling jewels. Interior finishes are all high-end, commensurate with the quality of the vehicles within.

Full height, glass-walled sales offices, a custom customer lounge, and material selection areas surround the open showroom floor. The service center features eight service bays and a retail parts department.

The facility is part of Cozad’s Sunnen Station Development, situated at the northeast corner of South Hanley Road and Sunnen Drive.

Recycler Uses Rare Magnetic Optical Sorter Machine at New $5 Million Facility

in Companies/News

Missouri’s largest professional electronics recycler is using a $1.7 million magnetic optical sorter shredding machine in Wright City, Mo. to create new business opportunities that put it in the vanguard of national and international recycling operations.

EPC, Inc., which is based in St. Charles, Mo., opened its new, $5 million,104,000-square-foot facility in November 2016, replacing an existing, 65,000-square-foot recycling building in Earth City, Mo.  EPC anticipates that its business volume will grow by 20 percent initially at the new site.

The state-of-the-art magnetic optical sorter shredding machine positions the new location at the top level of technology recycling facilities in the United States.  Presently operating at about 40 percent capacity, the $1.7 million machine — one of the few of its kind in the world — has plenty of room for both environmental and economic growth.

The Wright City location underscores EPC’s commitment to its specialty, namely refurbishing and remarketing used IT equipment.  The facility is expected to handle 25 million pounds of material in 2017.  EPC handles about 70,000 whole devices a month globally, refurbishing and reselling 90 percent to 95 percent of that.  Its primary source of business is major corporations.

The magnetic optical sorter shredding machine includes smart technology, automating the process of sorting and decommissioning computer equipment and eliminating the human risk associated with decommissioning.  The sorter also has the capabilities to learn processes and improve performance based on logging and avoiding previous mistakes.

Founded by company president Dan Fuller in 1984, EPC has been growing substantially at a significant rate for more than 30 years.  I hope you’ll be interested in touring the Wright City facility and learning what makes it one of the major recycling locations in the United States.

EPC is a wholly-owned subsidiary of St. Louis-based CSI Leasing.  For more information, visit www.epcusa.com.

Eagan Building Group, a Washington based commercial construction contractor, recently announced the kickoff of a headquarters renovation for the Lutheran Church Extension Fund in Sunset Hills, Missouri.  The twelve-phase project consists of renovating nearly 28,000 square feet office finish including new offices, conference rooms, updated finishes, and new modular furnishings.

The project is scheduled to be finished before the end of July.

Eagan Building Group was formed in 2008 and focuses on the commercial & industrial building markets.  They are also sellers of commercial carpeting and modular office furniture.

STLCC Awards KAI Design & Build Contract to Design New Allied Health Center

in Companies/News

KAI Design & Build has been awarded a consulting contract with St. Louis Community College (STLCC) to design the new Allied Health Center on the college’s Forest Park campus. The project team will be comprised of 85% Minority Business and Woman Business Enterprises through KAI and its consultants.

The contract was approved at the STLCC Board of Trustees meeting on Feb. 23.

“KAI presents an experienced, diverse project team that has done considerable design work for the college,” said Jeff Pittman, Ph.D., STLCC chancellor. “They demonstrated a clear vision for the transformative nature of the new building, as well as a creative preliminary solution to the site development, acoustic concerns and future campus space requirements.”

The project aims to gain Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) gold certification for the building. LEED is considered the leading benchmark in green building.

The proposed site of the new Allied Health building is along Oakland Avenue between the Library building and immediately north of the A, B and C Towers. It will house STLCC-Forest Park’s existing Allied Health programs, and add the districtwide Nursing program, plus the Physical Therapist Assistant and Occupational Therapist Assistant programs, which are currently offered at the Meramec campus. Preliminary data suggests the facility will be 65,000 square feet.

“The new Allied Health Center will be a significant addition and improvement to the Forest Park campus. Replacing a more than 50-year-old structure, the new building will metaphorically reintroduce the campus to the St. Louis community in a bold and vibrant way.”, said Larry Johnson Jr, Ph.D., STLCC-Forest Park provost.

Project completion on the Allied Health building is estimated to be two-and-a-half years. Actual construction may take up to 15 months, and also will include demolition of the A and B Towers and construction of a new entrance off Oakland Avenue.

KAI Design & Build was established in 1980 in St. Louis, MO. The firm specializes in providing value‐added building solutions through design and build collaboration.

Established in 1962, St. Louis Community College is the largest community college district in Missouri and one of the largest in the United States. STLCC has four campuses: Florissant Valley, Forest Park, Meramec and Wildwood. The college annually serves more than 80,000 students through credit courses, continuing education and workforce development programs. For more information about STLCC, visit  stlcc.edu.
