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.
Korte Company, Sundt Construction (Arizona), Baker (Pennsylvania), RicciGreene Associates (New York) 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.
