Clayco Breaks Ground On Green Hall At Washington University In St. Louis
St. Louis, MO (June 24, 2010)
Clayco Inc. was recently named design-builder on a new 70,000-square-foot engineering research building for Washington University in St. Louis. To be named Preston M. Green Hall, the facility will serve as the gateway to the University’s School of Engineering & Applied Science Quadrangle.
The four-story concrete Green Hall will feature a granite and limestone façade and will include state-of-the-art engineering research laborites, office space, and additional space for the Department of Electrical & Systems Engineering, among other programs. The building will connect to the recently completed Brauer Hall, which houses additional biomedical and energy, environmental, and chemical engineering research labs and a revolutionary distance-learning classroom.
“We are excited to begin another innovative project for Washington University’s Danforth Campus. Having played a critical role in the construction of Brauer Hall, Clayco brings a unique perspective and awareness of the school’s strategic plans. Preston M. Green Hall will provide the School of Engineering & Applied Science with the additional research facilities necessary to enhance the activities of its students and faculty,” said Kirk Warden, Clayco Senior Vice President and Partner and project executive for the Green Hall construction.
Continued Warden, “As the entrance to the engineering quadrangle, Preston M. Green Hall will be an exceptional contribution to the campus’ physical presence.” Ground was broken on the project in late April 2010.
Clayco’s team includes Warden, project executive Steve Street, and senior project manager Pat Moriarity working as a team with architect RMJM. Joining the construction team, Cole and Associates, Inc. will serve as civil engineer, KPFF, Inc. will work as structural engineer, and William Tao & Associates, Inc. will act as mechanical consultant.
