|St. Louis County Court Construction Update|
Here is the latest news for the County Courts Project
As of April 21, 2015
CONSTRUCTION ACTIVITY UPDATE
Mechanical (HVAC), electrical, and plumbing work continues inside the new building; and the new elevators and escalators are being installed. Walls are being framed and covered with drywall and in some places the drywall joints are being taped and mudded. Street level is getting a new floor slab, and work continues on the roofing system. In the garage, work continues on strengthening and refurbishing the structure, aisle-by-aisle.
If you are curious about something that you see and want to ask questions just call Justin Ryder (contact info below) and the Courts Project Team will do their best to answer!
The new roof membrane is white! A white roof reflects more sunlight and helps keep the building cooler than if it were a darker color!
SHAW PARK GARAGE LIGHTING WORK
Those who park in the Shaw Garage will see Public Works crews changing out the old lighting and replacing it with new energy efficient LED lighting. Crews will be working between 7:00am and 10:00pm and it will take two and one-half to three months to complete. The new lights will be motion controlled, programmable, and are expected to result in 70% energy savings! As always, please be cautious in the garage and keep an eye out for workers!
METROBUS FREE RIDE ZONE
We have updated our timetables to match Metro’s (current as of 4/2/2015). Please contact Justin (contact info below) if you need an updated timetable.
NOISE INSIDE COURTHOUSE
The contractor is making structural repairs on the Street Level of the Courthouse. This requires some jackhammering that can be heard inside the building, especially in the lower levels of the building. Noisy work has been confined to the hours of 7am-9am, with a break between 9:00 a.m. and 12:00 p.m., then starts up again at 12:00 p.m. and continues the rest of the day.
