Bryan Cave Office Expansion
Location: St. Louis, MO
Client: Bryan Cave, LLP
Size: 225,000 SF
With some help from Guarantee Electrical, Bryan Cave LLP successfully mastered the corporate version of musical chairs to substantially renovate and expand its headquarters office with minimal disruption to its growing team.
The global business and litigation law firm hoped to avoid interrupting the daily workflow of attorneys and staff as construction crews completed Bryan Cave’s nine-floor, 225,000-square-foot office expansion and renovation in downtown St. Louis’ Metropolitan Square tower. Guarantee successfully achieved the goal by working in defined zones for four 12- to 17-week phases as Bryan Cave employees cycled from floor to floor, avoiding construction areas.
Guarantee Electrical served as design-build electrical contractor for new electrical, lighting, power and low-voltage systems for partner offices, secretarial stations, the accounting department, audio-visual presentation rooms, conference rooms and an executive dining room. GECO Systems installed new fire alarms, voice/data, security and audio-visual systems. The renovated space featured two computer rooms, a full kitchen and attorney offices around the building perimeter, with striking views of downtown St. Louis. The $3.5 million renovation began in June 2006. All nine floors were completed by October 2007.
