Clayco Completes Renovation of Saint Louis University School of Law in Scott Hall
Features Mock Courtroom and Rooftop Views of the Arch
CHICAGO (August 15, 2013) – Clayco, Inc. has completed work on the interior finish, façade enhancements and renovations for Saint Louis University School of Law in Scott Hall at 100 N. Tucker Blvd. in downtown St. Louis.
SLU LAW classes began this fall in Scott Hall in the heart of the city’s legal community. The 12-story structure is adjacent to the Civil & Custom Courts Building and features a two-level library, the John K. Pruellage Courtroom, the Anheuser-Busch Student Commons, the Louis W. Riethmann, Jr., Pavilion with sweeping views of the St. Louis skyline, high-tech classrooms and enclosed parking. The Docket Restaurant, a new addition at street level, features flexible seating for individual and group dining experiences and is open to the public.
“The Clayco team is proud to be a part of this unique renovation in our community,” said Jared Hegeman, Project Executive. “This 1965 building is unique because it was originally built to accommodate additional structural levels. We were able to add a floor and two elevators based on the designer’s futuristic vision.”
The building represents a $32 million investment in Saint Louis University and the city of St. Louis. Now standing 12 stories tall, with the upper floor featuring 20-foot ceilings, the exterior cornice was pre-fabricated and erected in 20-foot sections.
“The completion of Scott Hall will provide our students with unique opportunities for a fully integrated education in a state-of-the-art facility, designed to meet the specific needs of our law students,” said Michael A. Wolff, J.D., Dean of the Saint Louis University School of Law. “The Pruellage Courtroom is modeled after our federal courts and will give students opportunities for realistic trial experience, and the two-story legal library provides ample study space and technology to graduate students ready to step seamlessly into the legal community.”
Wolff added that the move downtown will strengthen the law school’s ties with St. Louis’ legal community and offer law students new opportunities to enhance their educational experience. Scott Hall features the latest in classroom functionality with cutting-edge audio/visual equipment, hearing assistance and multipurpose spaces that support how legal education is being taught today.
