Tarlton Corp., a St. Louis-based general contracting and construction management firm, is serving as construction manager for a $12 million multi-level parking garage at 4217 Custom Steel Drive near Duncan Avenue in the Cortex Innovation Community in St. Louis’ Central West End.
The five-level parking garage will have spaces for 678 vehicles. Construction scope consists of 400 pieces of precast concrete and 3,500 cubic yards of excavation and backfill. Tarlton Concrete will self-perform the cast-in-place concrete, including 50 drilled piers and 2,000 cubic yards of grade beams, walls and slabs, as well as the installation of an elevator. The construction of the new parking garage in the Cortex Innovation Community marks the first phase of three parking garage projects that are planned in the district. The parking garage is slated for completion in May 2019.
The team includes Brian Gibson, project director; Brian Shaffer, project manager; Michael Vemmer, project engineer; Jon Stemme, project superintendent; and Laurie Howell, cost engineer. HOK is the project architect.
Tarlton also is working with Cortex on Innovation Hall, a 13,800-square-foot networking and event space at 4220 Duncan Ave., next to the Custom Steel Drive garage, where the firm also completed interior fit-outs for building tenants BJC WellAware Center, Microsoft and Cambridge Innovation Center.
