Guarantee Electrical Company Hits Grand Slam As Ballpark Village Opens to the Public
The much anticipated opening of Ballpark Village in St. Louis, MO is now a reality. Ballpark Village is St. Louis’ newest dining and entertainment district in St. Louis and the Missouri area. This is the first ever sports anchored entertainment district located next to Busch Stadium, home of the St. Louis Cardinals. The approximately 120,000 square foot multi-story project is visible beyond the left center field wall, and compliments the energy and excitement of the game day experience. The first phase of Ballpark Village is anchored by Cardinals Nation, Budweiser Brew House, FOX Sports Midwest Studios, PBR St. Louis – A Cowboy Bar, Howl at the Moon, and Drunken Fish.
One local, union contractor has played a major role in building the new facility. Guarantee Electrical Company, working under one owner, The Cordish Company, and multiple Construction Managers, was selected to deliver the majority of electrical packages on the project due to its depth of resources, breadth of service capabilities and ability to perform on such a fast tracked project. The $6.2 million in electrical packages have covered every type of electrical construction delivery method imaginable. From Civil, Commercial, Engineering, Pre-Construction and Systems to Design Build, Design-Bid-Build (Plan & Spec), as well as Time & Material projects, Construction Managers including Paric, Clayco Construction and Blanton Construction needed subcontractors they could count on. Guarantee Electrical provided all Engineering, Pre-Construction and Systems design; installed all civil electrical construction; all electrical construction on the shell/core; tenant systems electrical including AV/CCTV and all electrical on sponsor and tenant signage, without a single safety incident.
According to Doug Mertzlufft, President of Guarantee Electrical Company, “It’s always great when we have the opportunity to work on a challenging, time sensitive, project. The reward for everyone lies in the finished project coming together. On a project as high of a profile as Ballpark Village, and all that the St. Louis Cardinals mean to this community, it adds something extra special for Guarantee Electrical and all of our employees who put so much time and effort into the project. We are thankful to have been given the opportunity to work on the project and very proud of the finished product."
