Clayco Completes Employee-Centric Offices Near St. Louis

Clayco recently completed the design and construction of [email protected], a four-story, 125,000-square-foot Class A office building in Creve Coeur, MO, near St. Louis, for Seneca Commercial Real Estate. Completed during the COVID-19 lockdown, the employee-centric building’s design is largely touchless and includes safely distanced amenities targeting technology and creative companies.

Built by Clayco and designed by Lamar Johnson Collaborative, the project broke ground in December 2019 and finished core and shell a year later. Exposed building systems are incorporated into the design, including enhanced mechanical systems that increase healthy air flow using attached plasma units.

Designed pre-pandemic, the building contains touchless doors and an open concept offering communal amenities, so tenants don’t have to build them into rented spaces. All four floors are connected by a central communicating stair opening to two multi-level atriums.

Clayco provided design-build and self-perform concrete services in collaboration with Lamar Johnson Collaborative and owner Seneca.
