BJC – Washington University Medical School Campus Renewal Project
As a member of the ACW Alliance, Clayco is performing a major construction and renovation project to transform the BJC HealthCare/Washington University School of Medicine campus. The project features a new inpatient tower at Barnes-Jewish Hospital (BJH), a major expansion of St. Louis Children’s Hospital (SLCH) and improvements to campus public spaces.
The new, 12-story inpatient tower at BJH adds 545,000 square feet of hospital space and 406 parking spaces on two levels beneath the tower. With 185 new private rooms, the facility will include Women and Infants services adjacent to the SLCH neonatal intensive care unit; expanded and consolidated inpatient Siteman Cancer Center services and othersurgical programs; and diagnostics and support services.
The 12-story, 214,000-square-foot expansion of St. Louis Children’s Hospital features 136 new private patient rooms, an expanded NICU and one level under the expansion to accommodate valet parking. Public area improvements to enhance the patient and visitor experience include landscaping, pedestrian pathways, lighting, parking, signage, arrival and departure sequences and relocation of service traffic. Working within the region’s busiest hospital campus, the team is taking multiple precautions to protect patients from noise, dust and vibration. The team is also assisting in traffic and pedestrian routing and wayfinding. The ACW Alliance also includes joint venture partners Alberici and SM Wilson.
