Tarlton Completes Historic Renovation of Shriners Hospital & CID Buildings

//
Facebooktwitterlinkedinmail

Project promotes sustainability by converting two vacant buildings into modern apartments

Tarlton Corp., a St. Louis-based general contracting and construction management firm, completed the $28 million historic renovation of buildings that formerly housed Shriners Hospital for Children and Central Institute for the Deaf in St. Louis’ Central West End, into The Core Apartment Residences.

Tarlton served as general contractor on the project that transformed two adjacent buildings – Shriners Hospital at 700-728 S. Euclid Ave. and CID at 818 S. Euclid Ave. – into 160 rental apartments that share amenity spaces, including common kitchens and a large community room, as well as a game room, music practice space, media lounge and fitness center. BOBB, LLC was the developer for the project.

The mix of units includes studio, one- and two-bedroom apartments. The scope of work included restoring the existing masonry facade, window repair or replacement, installation of new mechanicals, plumbing, electrical systems and fire protection, paving and landscaping. The new residential development offers a convenient central location to students on the medical campuses of Washington University and BJC HealthCare and the nearby St. Louis College of Pharmacy, as well as people working in the Cortex Innovation Community.

The Shriners and CID buildings are listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The two buildings opened within a decade of each other, and each was designed in the Renaissance Revival style by renowned St. Louis architect William B. Ittner. The three-story, 77,671-square-foot Shriners building, which opened in 1924, was the largest facility in a national network of free hospitals created by The Shriners fraternal society to treat disabled children. Central Institute for the Deaf, founded by Dr. Max Aaron Goldstein, opened in 1929 as a school for deaf children and to train teachers in deaf education. The four-story CID building totals 51,207 square feet.

“It’s rare that builders have the opportunity to lead the construction management team on the renovation of two separate, but adjacent historic buildings that have evolved into an exciting, centrally located residential apartment community,” said Tracy Hart, Tarlton president.

The Tarlton team included Matthew Pfund, project executive; Joe Scarfino, project director; Chris Kaintz, project manager; Sarah Mangapora, senior project engineer; Mack Waggoner, project engineer; and Jeff Peterson and Steve Moore, project superintendents. Lawrence Group was the project architect.

The Shriners and CID project is the latest in a number of historic renovations completed by Tarlton. The firm recently restored and constructed an addition to a pre-Civil War building at Missouri Botanical Garden, the Stephen and Peter Sachs Museum. Other historic renovations completed or in progress include 700 Market St. in downtown St. Louis, home to Spire headquarters; @4240 in the Cortex District, a former telephone factory; and Moosylvania, a Baptist church transformed into a marketing agency headquarters.

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.

Tarlton Corp. Begin Muny Renovations

Facebooktwitterlinkedinmail

Marks the first phase of capital improvements to the iconic outdoor musical theater 

Tarlton Corp., a St. Louis-based general contracting and construction management firm, is serving as construction manager for renovations to The Muny, America’s oldest and largest outdoor musical theater.

Tarlton, which has been providing preconstruction services, has begun the first phase of construction now that The Muny’s centennial summer season has concluded. In May, The Muny launched its first-ever public fundraising effort, “Second Century Capital Campaign,” to raise $100 million for capital improvements and ongoing maintenance of its 11.5-acre campus in Forest Park.

The scope of work includes rebuilding and revamping The Muny’s century-old stage to address structural needs and provide capabilities for modern stage technologies. A new revolving platform to move sets and actors more efficiently during productions will replace the existing turntable, which was installed in 1930. Other upgrades include tracks to move scenery and five lifts to bring materials and/or actors to the stage from below.

A new overhead light bridge of structural steel with an integrated walkway will replace the current cable light bridge system and provide infinite capabilities for lighting configurations. The Muny’s current lighting system also will be enhanced by all new LED lighting. Other improvements include additional LED screens for digital projections, which create unlimited color variations on and around the stage.

The Muny’s stage will undergo dramatic design changes. Two architectural shell-shaped towers constructed of steel, concrete, concrete masonry units and drywall will frame each side and conceal an array of electronics and sound equipment. Air ducts in the new towers will distribute air more evenly throughout the theater. At the close of The Muny’s 2019 season, a façade of durable glass fiber reinforced concrete panels will be installed. These panels are designed to reflect lighting and produce a wide spectrum of color.

In addition, a new, expanded climate-controlled orchestra pit situated under The Muny’s stage will accommodate musicians, who still will remain visible to Muny-goers, but in a protected environment more conducive for delicate musical instruments sensitive to humidity and temperature fluctuations.

The team will construct a full basement, new electrical and mechanical systems, new elevators, restrooms, locker rooms and general storage spaces.

“The renovations have been in the planning stages for years,” said Dennis Reagan, president and chief executive officer.  “As we look toward the second century of The Muny, these improvements are designed to enhance the musical theater experience for St. Louisans and visitors and are vital to its future.”

The Tarlton team includes Joe Scarfino, project director; Cameron Denison, senior project manager; Travis Aly, senior project engineer; Chad Hartman and Matt Grill, project superintendents; and Cindy Cerentano, cost engineer. The project architect is H3 architects in New York City.

“We are honored to be a part of this exciting renovation and continue our history in working with The Muny, an iconic cultural institution and summer favorite in St. Louis,” said Tarlton President Tracy Hart.

Tarlton has completed a host of renovation projects for The Muny over the last 20 years. Its work for the long-time Forest Park institution ranges from the installation of giant cooling fans to amphitheater, restroom and concession stand renovations. In addition, Tarlton has completed numerous miscellaneous projects including lighting work, plaza renovations, sidewalk repairs and handrail upgrades.

“The Muny” is the nation’s oldest and largest outdoor musical theater. The popular amphitheater seats 11,000 people with approximately 1,500 free seats available. The Muny produces all of its musicals, offering seven productions that run seasonally from mid-June to mid-August. It is the largest outdoor theater to host Broadway-style musical theater and has a history of hosting top performers from theater, TV, film and stage. 

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.

Electrical Connection Members Power the PGA Championship in St. Louis

//
Facebooktwitterlinkedinmail

If you attended or watched the historic 100th PGA Championship in St. Louis, you marveled at the precision golf shots.  Behind the scenes, equally impressive precision by Electrical Connection members powered the event and connected it to a worldwide audience.  Contracted by Aggreko, an international electricity, heating, and cooling provider, NECA contractor Guarantee Electrical Co. teamed with IBEW Local 1 to power every facet of the championship.

“The PGA was a spectacular showcase for St. Louis worldwide,” said Jim Curran, executive vice president, Electrical Connection.  “We are extremely proud of our IBEW/NECA team which for decades has been the region’s ‘go to’ source for reliable and safe electrical and communications infrastructure needed for major events.   The PGA and Bellerive Country Club delivered a great tournament for fans and we were pleased to be part of it.”

The tale of the tape on the sprawling Bellerive Country Club in Town & Country, Mo. and its 7,547-yard course also tells the tale of the enormous challenge of transforming the private club for a worldwide spectacle. The event was almost entirely powered by generators.

Guarantee connected temporary power to the 46,800-square-foot PGA Merchandise Pavilion to power its air conditioning, wireless communications, lighting, video boards and more. The generators also reliably powered the concession stands strategically placed along the golf course.

Equally impressive were the accommodations for the media and the estimated 1,000 journalists covering the event.  The IBEW/NECA team provided temporary power to the massive media center and stationary cameras covering the action on the course.  In addition, the temporary power was used to support media using wireless connections for roaming camera crews and journalists on the course.

Guarantee began work on the project a year ago by connecting temporary power from an Ameren feed to the PGA trailer from which the entire championship was orchestrated. To insure uninterruptable power for this major event, a backup generator was provided to the Bellerive clubhouse.

The PGA project was yet another in a series major St. Louis area events wired by the IBEW/NECA team.  Indeed, Guarantee Electrical traces its name to its “guaranteed performance” wiring of the 1904 World’s Fair.

The Electrical Connection is a partnership of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) Local 1 and the National Electrical Contractors Associations (NECA).  For more than 100 years, IBEW/NECA has been the “go to” resource for safe and reliable electrical and communications construction, maintenance, repair and replacement services across Missouri, the nation and the world.  For more information, visit www.electricalconnection.org.

IBEW/NECA Team on Renovation to Gateway Arch Grounds

//
Facebooktwitterlinkedinmail

Six St. Louis NECA Contractors Energize the Visitor Experience 

The July 4, 2018 festivities celebrating the newly renovated Gateway Arch grounds in St. Louis brought a great deal of pride to the Electrical Connection IBEW/NECA partnership.  The project included six electrical contractors with the St. Louis Chapter of the National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA) and more than 100 skilled International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) Local 1 electricians and communication technicians. The IBEW/NECA team improved the electrical infrastructure to support new interactive exhibits and other attractions at the renamed Gateway Arch National Park, formerly known as the Jefferson National Expansion Memorial.

“While our workforce delivers excellence on all of our projects, this one was special because of the civic pride in the iconic memorial that celebrates St. Louis and its role in westward expansion,” said Frank Jacobs, IBEW Local 1 business manager.

The five-year, $380 million rejuvenation of the Arch grounds was completed in time for the annual Fair St. Louis Independence Day celebration.  The more than 90-acre national park beneath the 630-foot tall Gateway Arch received refreshed landscaping that also made the grounds more accessible to downtown St. Louis.  It also included expanding the Gateway Arch Visitors Center and a new interactive Museum of Westward Expansion.

“NECA contractors modernized electrical and communications systems to improve the overall visitor experience in dynamic ways,” noted Doug Martin, executive vice president, St. Louis NECA. “Our members are proud to have played an important role in connecting the public to St. Louis’ role in such an important chapter of U.S. history.”

NECA contractor Guarantee Electric Co. (GECO) served as the prime electrical contractor for the team lead by general contractors McCarthy and Kozeny Wagner. Its work has been honored as a finalist for 2018 AGC Keystone Awards.  GECO provided the Museum of Western Expansion with a new 4,000-amp electrical service.  It also supplied a fully digital communication system throughout the facility supporting video surveillance, security sensors and alarms, access control and fire alarm along with the infrastructure supplying state-of-the-technology high-speed Internet. The daylight-infused museum entry space is enhanced by 1.5-inch wide LED strips embedded in a unique tube ceiling designed to highlight a giant floor map of the confluence of the Mississippi and Missouri rivers from which the Lewis & Clark Expedition launched its westward exploration in 1803.  The Museum’s advanced lighting system optimizes daylighting to enhance an open landscape experience two stories underground.

NECA contractors Aschinger Electric and X-Cell Electric teamed on a complete overhaul of the Arch tram infrastructure, including advanced automation. A new digital system improves overall reliability of the tram.   Sensors now continually monitor tram motor temperatures, oil pump pressure and other key aspects of system function. All of the data is integrated by new programmable logic controllers giving maintenance personnel a real-time view of system performance to take preventative measures before problems occur. Improvements were also made to all safety system backups to assure a safe and enjoyable experience for the up to 6,000 people who ride the tram to the top of the Arch each day.  Aschinger’s and X-Cell’s tram work was performed for the Harlan Co.  Aschinger also completed the north and south Arch Grounds power and lighting projects for McCarthy.

NECA contractor Kaemmerlen Electric assisted Conference Technologies with upgrading the tram loading areas.  That included the lighting, fire alarm, and power for the various projectors, displays and racks of AV equipment.  It also included low-voltage work adding fiber optics for support of the AV equipment, displays and projectors to improve the vistior experience they wait for the trams, including a projector above each door to the trams to inform and entertain visitors. Kaemmerlen also added ticker-style informational displays for the walk from the museum area to the tram.

Liberty Electric, another NECA contractor, installed temperature controls and low voltage electrical needs in the museum.  Finally, NECA contractor Briner Electric performed work to improve Luther Ely Smith Square, including site lighting and electrical infrastructure.

See the IBEW Local 1 video on the renovation project.

Electrical Connection members provide safe and reliable electrical construction, maintenance, repair and replacement services across Missouri, the nation and the world.  For more information visit www.electricalconnection.org.
