Publication: St. Louis CNR, September 14, 2017
Together with the Department of Veterans Affairs representatives, the architect and site construction workers, Poettker Construction Company celebrated the steel topping out milestone at the Jefferson Barracks VA Engineering Warehouse during a ceremony on September 7, 2017.
“Thank you to all the team members who have helped us reach this project milestone! The Poettker Team is honored to collaborate with the VA, Christner, and our business partners to create a new facility for the VA’s warehouse, engineering, and maintenance operations,” said Keith Poettker, president of Poettker Construction.
The $30.9 million facility will consolidate the VA’s warehouse, engineering, and maintenance operations into one location, creating the future expansion space needed for the adjacent national cemetery. The exterior façade features both precast concrete and brick masonry to complement the neighboring buildings.
Sustainable construction is a top priority with a goal to achieve LEED Silver certification. To date, more than 95% of the construction waste has been recycled.
Our team also celebrated the project’s safety milestone, commemorating 365 calendar days without a lost-time incident.
Christner of St. Louis designed this facility.
Construction is currently on schedule with completion expected in Fall 2018.
