The Korte Company is a historic St. Louis construction company, and we’ve delivered landmark builds throughout our region and nationwide. This office renovation project helped St. Louis Union Station serve as a major destination in downtown St. Louis for tourists and the region’s residents.
The Power House was built on the exact site of the former Union Station Power House. We reused the original, century-old foundation and had to use special construction techniques to transfer structural loads.
The four-story office and retail building has a masonry façade with limestone banding and a broad gabled roof. The new Power House incorporates the existing, 196-foot smokestack. We cleaned the stack, tuckpointed it and lit it from below to make it the focal point of Power House Place.
Our team has completed more than 2,000 construction projects since 1958, including office renovation and construction for Fortune 500 companies, commercial developers and building tenants. For us, there’s no job too big or small. we’ve never delivered over budget or behind schedule. Learn more about on-time, on-budget office renovation from The Korte Company.
