It was renovated into 50 suites which include single and double-occupancy units, units for physically challenged residents and numerous public-use spaces. Each resident room was provided with dedicated circuits to serve the residents’ microwave ovens, refrigerators, computers and other electrical loads and was provided with telephone, data and cable television jacks. An access monitoring and control system was installed for all public spaces, all entrances and perimeter spaces as necessary. Closed-circuit television cameras were installed along with door monitoring and card access controls.

Airport Experience

Lambert St. Louis International Airport
Open End MEP Design Services

WES, Inc. is a member of the team headed by Burns & McDonnell for design of mechanical, electrical & plumbing projects on an as need basis around the airport. The life of the contract is three years with an optional two year extension for a potential of 5 years. We anticipate such projects as office renovations, new generator systems, new ventilation system, the replacement of outdated equipment and UPS system design, etc. This contract should be active until 2011.

LSIA (Lambert St. Louis International Airport)
Air Handler Replacement

This is a project with a $10,000,000.00 construction cost and involves the replacement of 30-year old equipment at Lambert St. Louis International Airport (LSIA). Equipment replaced includes air handlers, piping, pumps for chilled water, heating water and steam condensate, and exhaust and supply fans. New equipment design will match specific requirements for each zone as opposed to the uniform distribution approach of the original design.

American Airlines Master Plan Implementation

WES, Inc. designed the renovation of an unfinished ramp level space to a nicely finished area serving several different groups of American Airlines personnel. The new area included things such as lounges for cabin and cockpit personnel, a kitchen, computer areas for cabin and cockpit personnel, clothes-changing facilities, new ADA-compliant restrooms and three (3) sleeping rooms. This was part of American Airlines master plan to convert space formerly used by TWA into usable space that fit American Airlines needs.

Roadway Lighting

Shreveport Roadway Lighting System Design
Shreveport, LA.

This project involved the design of a new lighting system along a 7.5 mile span of highway in the city of Shreveport. At a construction cost of $1.8 million dollars, our design included new lighting standards, circuits, concrete bases and a conduit system. We provided coordination with the utility company for multiple service points for the new system. This design was completed under budget.

Near South Side Redevelopment Phase I & Phase II
St. Louis, Missouri

This project site is located in the City of St. Louis and is bordered by Lafayette Avenue, 14th Street, Park Avenue and Tucker Boulevard. The project involved the removal of existing Cobra-head Street lighting fixtures and their replacement with new decorative lighting fixtures.




Civic Plaza Street Lighting
University City, Missouri

University City officials and residents consider the Civic Plaza area the centerpiece of the City. Personnel of WES provided the electrical engineering design for the city’s new street lighting project, which highlights the well-known landmark “The Lions of University City”. WES coordinated the selection of lighting fixtures to match the original historic lighting fixtures for this area. These fixtures are controlled by a photocell and lighting contactor which is fed from a panel in the City Hall Building. The lions are illuminated from front and street sides by matching fixtures on top of a lighting standard.

Jefferson Barracks Bridge-I-255
St. Louis, Missouri

This project was to replace existing power systems and lighting fixtures which had been deteriorated by weather and salt. Unique aspects of this project included the use of NEMA 4X housings for the power distribution and lighting switching and the use of PVC coated aluminum conduits in exposed areas. These materials were required to withstand the environment created by the river and the use of salt. New lighting fixtures were designed along inside of the bridge archway so that a person working inside the archway could turn on a course of lights ahead of him and turn off lights behind has he went along. Compact fluorescent lamps were also employed for long life and low energy consumption and river navigation lighting fixtures were constructed in NEMA 4X fixtures. The aircraft hazard aviation lighting design conformed to FCC and FAA requirements for continuous service under all weather conditions.
