ST LOUIS, MO – Wiegmann Associates has completed HVAC work on the new Center for Nursing and Health Sciences located on St. Louis Community College’s Forest Park campus. The 96,000-square-foot facility, the first new building to be constructed on the campus in nearly 20 years, is scheduled for completion later this summer. Wiegmann Associates served as the mechanical contractor.
Tarlton Corp. is serving as construction manager on the project. KAI Design-Build is the project architect. The facility is LEED registered (Silver targeted) with the U.S. Green Building Council and is on track to achieve certification, according to a college spokesman.
The new, energy-efficient HVAC system optimizes performance while meeting the temperature requirements of the science laboratories, classrooms, dental clinics and common areas. Wiegmann fabricated and installed the ductwork.
The new Center for Nursing and Health Sciences is expected to open to students and faculty in August 2019 and will serve approximately 900 students each year. St. Louis Community College has achieved LEED certification for multiple other projects and was the first community college in the nation to achieve a LEED Gold certification (at Wildwood campus).
