|St. Louis County Court Construction Update|
Here is the latest news for the County Courts Project
As of March 3, 2015:
CONSTRUCTION ACTIVITY UPDATE
Erection of the precast exterior wall panels continues along S. Meramec. Inside the new building, plumbers and electricians are installing their runs; ductwork is also being installed; sprinkler lines are being hung; and interior partitions are being framed; and the new elevators and escalators are being installed. Street level is getting a new floor slab, and work continues on the roofing system. Window frames and glass are being installed along the new S. Central façade. In the garage, work continues on strengthening and refurbishing the structure. The lot at 111 S. Meramec is being prepared for use as staging area. Inside the existing Courthouse, preparations are being made to build the shaft for one of the new elevators.
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 boiler room that provides heat to the existing Courthouse is actually in the basement of the Administration Building! A small boiler room will supply heat to the Courthouse addition.
SATURDAY CLOSURE OF S. CENTRAL
The Southbound lanes of S. Central will be closed on Saturday. The contractor will have a crane positioned in that spot to hoist materials and equipment to the roof of the existing Courthouse. The road should be open again on Sunday.
FLOOR PROTECTION IN COURTHOUSE
The masonry contractor is bringing materials into the Courthouse to construct new elevator shaft walls. Protective plastic will be adhered to the carpet in some of the hallways to reduce wear and tear from the additional traffic.
COUNTY CREDIT UNION ATM
The ATM is back! It has been installed inside the rotunda of the Justice Center at 100 S. Central Ave.
METROBUS FREE RIDE ZONE
Send Justin an email (contact info below) if you need UPDATED METRO TIMETABLES (current as of 12/12/14)! Tip: The bus stop on Central Ave is north of the Admin Building, closer to the Police Headquarters. The bus may not let you on if you choose to stand at the entrance to the Admin Building rather than at the actual bus stop.
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 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m., 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. The noise should be intermittent, not continuous.
