St. Louis County has selected a shortlist for the $100 million family court project which was passed by voters in April. The field consists of five teams represented by 18 firms including national judicial/correctional contracting giant Caddell which is headquartered in Montgomery, Alabama.
Clayco and their architectural offshoot Forum Studio are teamed with Alberici.
McCarthy, Jacobs Engineering, HOK, and KAI Design & Build are teamed.
KCI Construction, Fentress Architects (Colorado), and Treanor Architects are teamed.
Caddell Construction has teamed with KMD Justice (San Francisco), and GRW (Kentucky). KMD Justice is the judicial/correctional arm of international design leader KMD. Bond Architects, headquartered in Clayton, is also teamed with the out-of-towners.
Current Caddell Construction courthouse and office building partnerships with the U.S. General Services Administrationinclude major facilities in Little Rock, Arkansas; Rockford, Illinois; Omaha, Nebraska; and El Paso, Texas.
Proposition S plans call for building a new family court on a parking lot adjacent to the main courthouse and renovating that functionally obsolete 40-year-old structure. Selection of the winning team is not expected until the summer with construction expected to be completed by late 2015 or early 2016.
