The Korte Company worked closely with BJC Healthcare and the Washington University School of Medicine to deliver 65,524 square feet of new healthcare construction at the Barnes-Jewish West County Campus in St. Louis, Missouri. The project’s scope incorporated nine separate suites and covered numerous healthcare specialties which ranged from radiology diagnostics and pain management to otolaryngology.
Each of the suites was specifically designed and constructed to accommodate the distinct requirements of its new tenants. The pain management suite included 7,900 square feet of 14 exam rooms, prep area, waiting room and work spaces for doctors and nurses.
The 4,900-square-foot radiology suite included four diagnostic rooms, an exam room, waiting room and workspaces for doctors and staff. The sports and rehabilitation suite measured 9,450 square feet and included six treatment rooms, two massage rooms, eight treatment bays, equipment space and workspace for the therapists. Two otolaryngology suites measured 12,445 square feet in total and a separate pain management suite measured just under 900 square feet.
A 3,315-square-foot Living Well suite was also included in the scope and incorporated private treatment rooms, a registration desk and waiting room. The second-floor urology suite measured 6,847 square feet. Approximately 20,000 square feet was dedicated to the joint spine suite, a space that was shared between BJC Healthcare and Washington University School of Medicine.
Along with specialty finishes, the suites’ construction included rough carpentry, casework, new doors, framing, hardware, flooring, painting, furnishing, fire protection, plumbing, mechanical and electric.
