Work has begun on the $8-million renovation at the St. Louis VA Medical Center-Jefferson Barracks, located in Missouri, to replace outdated heating and cooling systems. Wiegmann Associates is the mechanical contractor, with Trine/Poettker joint venture as general contractor and Baysinger Design Group, Inc. as architect.
The plan/spec project involves removing the 50-year-old HVAC systems from Buildings 1, 51 and 52 and installing new, more energy-efficient equipment as well as new ductwork, piping and insulation.
Building 1 houses the VA’s patient services, administrative offices and various medical clinics. Building 51 is used for mental health services and Building 52 features a chiropractic clinic as well as the spinal cord injury care and pain rehabilitation center.
