Olde Towne Plaza

Olde Towne Plaza

New Retail Strip Mall

In order to build the new retail complex, 50 residential and commercial structures had to be demolished on the property and expansive clearing and grading activities were performed. In addition, all utilities had to be terminated or relocated and new utilities were set-up to accommodate the retail development. Due to the topography, the site also required approximately 500,000 cubic yards of fill, and the construction of a massive boulder retaining wall system that was pre-engineered to raise the site to the proper elevation.

Along with the construction of the plaza, improvements were also made to the Ballwin Elementary School parking lots and the Old Ballwin School was physically relocated. The timing of the work was critical due to the proximity of Ballwin Elementary, which required a phased construction schedule and an extended detour plan.

Bottle Line 36

After the success of the Bottle Line 34 projects, S. M. Wilson & Co. was awarded another high-profile project, Bottle Line 36 Packer/ Conveyor Line modification project in the basement of the St. Louis Brewery – Bevo facility. Due to the fact that the Bottle Line 36 project required the existing bottle line to completely shutdown for a period, a multi-phase construction schedule was developed in order to minimize production downtime. Team pre-planning and communication was also key in the success of this project.

The project encompassed the retrofit of a portion of the existing bottle line and the construction of a new upgraded line. The project included the demolition and replacement of a 45,000 SF, six-inch slab with a new multi-grid pitched slab and the assembly and installation of the associated equipment. The project was completed two weeks ahead of schedule.

Bottle Line 34

The “Out of the Box” project included the demolition and replacement of a 45,000 SF, six-inch slab with a new multi-grid pitched slab. Due to the fact that the production center was running 24/7 during the duration of the project, S. M. Wilson & Co. had to take special precautions to make sure the construction did not interfere with production lines next to and below the construction area.

For the “In the Box” project, the new Bottle Line and the associated equipment had to be assembled and installed. Considering the weight of some of the equipment being installed, S. M. Wilson and Anheuser- Busch Corporate Engineering had to take into account floor loading, and special rail systems had to be designed and built for aiding in unloading and moving the equipment. Due to excellent team planning and communication S. M. Wilson was able to turn the Bottle Line 34 project over to Anheuser-Busch in 17 weeks compared to the original 20 week construction schedule.

City of Frontenac

City of Frontenac

Municipal Building

The City of Frontenac’s former municipal services—city hall, police, fire, and public works—were four separate buildings situated on the same long, narrow lot. The existing city facilities did not have adequate space or capacity to provide the level of service the city desired. The buildings were outdated, and while still able to function in their roles, were in need of updates and maintenance, the cost of which could be used toward new facilities instead.

The plan the building team reached for the city’s new municipal services building was to demolish the existing city hall, police department and fire department facilities, and combine them into one new state-of-the-art building. The new state-of-the-art building enhances city operations, providing better and updated quarters for the firefighters and paramedics, and eliminates existing limitations on equipment size as well as provide additional spaces and updates for technology for police patrol officers and detectives.

The government center houses the city’s police department, including a state-of-the-art detention facility, city council chambers, City Clerk and administrative offices, and the Public Works and Park & Recreation department.

The sitework was a major challenge. A 60-foot retaining wall was built and an underground water detention system with twin reinforced concrete box-culvert cast-in-place was installed. In addition, approximately 50,000 yards of fill was moved and 15,000 was imported to fill the site.

S. M. Wilson’s experience on several similar recreational facilities and our ability to provide very early conceptual estimating, were a few of the reasons we were selected for this project. In addition, we were also chosen because of our pre-construction team’s ability to work closely with the Architect and multiple user groups to program a facility that incorporates the needs of a diverse group.

Bethesda Gardens

Senior Living Facility

The senior living facility addition houses 43 apartment units including 31 one-bedroom apartments and 12 two-bedroom apartments. The 56,000 SF addition consisted of a new four-story apartment building and 19 underground parking spaces. The facility includes a lounge/ activity area, sundeck, residential storage at each level and a walkway linking to the existing facility at levels two, three and four.

The biggest challenge of this project was the tight site. The project, located next to existing buildings and closely bordered by Kirkwood Road, left little extra room for storage of construction materials. Close attention was devoted to material procurement and deliveries to maintain a minimal requirement for onsite storage of materials. Offsite parking was also being utilized to make more room on the site.
