New Public Works Facility (City of St. Charles, Missouri)
Location: Mueller Road / St. Charles, Missouri
Our Role: General Contractor
Wright Construction was selected as the General Contractor on the New Public Works Facility for the City of St. Charles. The work includes an Administration Building for the Public Works Administration, Fleet Services Building to maintain and repair the city’s fleet of vehicles and equipment, site utilities, 2 detention basins, and approximately 165,000 SF (3.8 acres) of concrete paving. The Administration Building included locker rooms, reception area, conference rooms, offices, and 2 workshops. The Fleet Services Building is a pre-engineered building with 4 vehicle lifts, overhead crane, vehicle fluids room, shop offices, locker room, storage rooms, industrial shelving, process piping for oil, washer fluid, compressed air, hydraulic oil, lubricants, and 2 mezzanines. There are future plans for 5 additional buildings and paving. The project was originally scheduled to begin August 2014 and complete August 2015. Wright Construction put a plan in place and followed through with it to complete the site utilities and get the Administration Building enclosed by Winter 2014 in order to continue construction activities through the poor weather unobstructed. This allowed for an early completion of the facilities in only 10 months.
