ST. LOUIS, MO, (SLFP.com), March 15, 2015 - SAK Construction, LLC, (SAK) has begun work on a $9.2 million contract to rehabilitate 5,575 linear feet of aging combined sewer in downtown St. Louis.
The project, which targets a major segment of the brick-and-limestone Old Mill Creek Sewer, is jointly funded by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the Metropolitan Sewer District of St. Louis (MSD). Rehabilitation of the sewer, which was built in the 1860s, is part of a comprehensive plan MSD is implementing to improve the St. Louis wastewater system.
According to Mike Badgley, SAK project manager, the contract includes renovating the 18-foot-high by 20-foot-wide arch-shaped sewer, 15 manholes and 58 lateral connections, using chemical grout, concrete and shotcrete (a specialized wet or dry concrete solution that is sprayed on and hardens in place, forming a structurally renewed surface). To complete the work, an estimated 3,200 cubic yards of concrete, 4,500 cubic yards of shotcrete and 400 tons of reinforced steel will be required.
"SAK's extensive experience in working on aging combined sewers, including the recently completed successful renovation of another section of the Old Mill Creek Sewer, allows us to tackle assignments of this complexity and size and ensure an on-time seamless project completion for MSD," Badgley said. Completion is slated for November 2017.
Among the unusual challenges posed by the project is the sewer's significant average dry weather flow of 50 million gallons a day. Badgley stated, "A combined sewer carries both sanitary and storm water. This means that heavy rainfall or a high river stage, in addition to the normal dry weather flow, can restrict working conditions within the sewer." To minimize potential issues and to progress on schedule, SAK regulates the dry weather flow by using a combination of bypasses and flow diversions.
Based in O'Fallon, Missouri, and with additional regional offices in Arbutus, Maryland; Sacramento, California; and Nashville, Tennessee, SAK is active across the U.S. The company solves the challenge of maintaining and restoring aging water and sanitary infrastructure for the municipal, energy and industrial markets. With industry-leading experience and a commitment to service excellence, SAK is a trusted partner helping customers worldwide renew, protect and expand their pipeline infrastructure.
ST. LOUIS, MO, (SLFP.com), January 12, 2015 - Construction is slated to begin soon on a $10.5 million interior renovation of Station Plaza, a warehouse located at 1900-12 Pine Street.
The 125-year-old building, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, was built by Liggett & Meyers Tobacco Co. in 1889 for drying tobacco. Sherman Associates, a Mineappolis-based a commercial real estate developer, has announced plans to created apartments in the building.
The six-story, red-brick building features arched windows and entrances, with a simple corbelled brick cornice on the sixth story. According to records of the Landmarks Association of St. Louis, the building was designed by architect Henry E. Roach, the building is one of St. Louis' best preserved and sophisticated examples of 1880s industrial architecture.
The area surrounding the building was cleared for the creation of Aloe Plaza where Carl Milles' 1940 fountain "Meeting of the Waters" is now installed in front of Saint Louis Union Station.
Sherman Associates, with Paul Keenan, the project manager, plans to convert the warehouse into 87 income restricted units, with studio, one bedroom and two bedroom designs. The project will feature 127 surface parking places.
