Here is the latest news for the County Courts Project
As of March 31, 2015
CONSTRUCTION ACTIVITY UPDATE
Window frames and glass are being installed along the new S. Central and Bonhomme façades. Crews are completing the welds on the precast panels that have been hung so far. Inside the new building, plumbers and electricians are installing their runs; ductwork is also being installed; and the new elevators and escalators are being installed. Structural steel is being coated with fire-proofing material. 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. The lot at 111 S. Meramec is being prepared for use as staging area. Inside the existing Courthouse, the shaft for one of the new elevators is being built and work is nearly complete on refurbishing 2 of the existing air handling units.
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 completed Courthouse will have 13 elevators!
AFTER-HOURS DEMOLITION WORK
This Friday, March 27, at 6 p.m. the contractor will begin demolition of the floor slabs inside the new elevator shaft on the east end of the building. This work is expected to be noisy and will continue for the next one to two weeks.
FLOOR PROTECTION IN COURTHOUSE
The protective plastic that is adhered to the carpet in some of the hallways of the Courthouse will remain until the demolition described above is complete.
METROBUS FREE RIDE ZONE
It has been brought to our attention that Metro has changed their route times. We will update our timetables and make them available. 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 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.km. and continues the rest of the day. The noise should be intermittent, not continuous.
