This five-story, 125,000 square-foot, $30 million office building is the third in the Delmar Gardens Chesterfield campus. Additionally, it is the first Class A, multi-tenant office building to be built in West St. Louis County since 2008.
The office building is a steel structure with a tinted precast concrete facade. The precast cladding is constructed from 438 pieces (27,300 square feet) of solid wall panels that were erected in 37 days.
The core and shell finishes consist of an open, two-story main entry lobby, a fitness area on the first level and restrooms for each level from one through five. The lower level of the office building includes 25 spaces of VIP parking.
The Delmar Gardens project also features a free-standing, 520-space precast parking garage that was constructed simultaneously on the same site as the office building. The parking garage is a structural precast concrete deck with four levels of parking. Precast concrete utilized in the construction of the parking garage included 116,200 square feet of un-topped double tees, 1,100 linear feet of precast concrete columns, 730 linear feet or precast beams, 14,700 square feet of exterior spandrels/infill panels, 3.000 square feet of shear walls, 5,700 square feet or stair/elevator shaft walls, 6,600 square feet of light walls, 1,100 square feet of precast concrete stair units and 420 square feet of floor slabs / roof slabs. The 223-piece precast parking garage was erected in 39 working days.
Precast was the natural selection for this project because it is part of an existing campus where precast structures have consistently been used with a high degree of success. As a result, the finishes and color selections for the office building and parking garage were all based on the owner’s desire to match or blend with other existing structures in this campus area.
