New Northwest Tower Office Building

Washington University - School of Medicine

St. Louis, Missouri

This exciting project revolved around the challenge of designing and constructing an eight-story, 190,000-square-foot smart office building atop an existing seven-level parking garage across from Children's Hospital in St. Louis. The project consolidates the diverse distribution of researchers, doctors, and associates previously scattered throughout the city. These offices accommodate the areas of Emergency Medicine, Genetics, GI/Endocrinology, Newborn Medicine, Critical Care, Cardiology, Pulmonary/Allergy, Oncology, Infectious Disease, Urology, Plastic Surgery, Ob/GYN, Immunology, HPB/Oncology, Anesthesiology, Neurology, and Radiology.

Henneman Engineering provided the mechanical, electrical, plumbing, fire protection, IT/IS design for this project. The building is served by chilled water and steam utilities from an adjacent building central plant connected to the overall Washington University School of Medicine campus utility system. The project included extensive furniture power/data coordination for total building tenant fit-out. Emergency power and normal power were brought to the building from an existing high voltage service and an additional generator. Henneman Engineering also provided building commissioning services and controls verification to ensure a fully operating high-rise building integrated into the owner's campus systems and operating protocol before move in.
