If you go solely on the basis of all the schools that a particular architectural firm has done, then you don’t know whether that particular architectural firm has designed good new science facilities or whether personalitywise they can work with the people in the school district.

Midtown State Office Building, St. Louis, MO
STATE OF MISSOURI, Jefferson City, MO
Scope: Construction management of inner city office building housing community services. This building project was the second State of Missouri building constructed using the agency construction management approach.
This building, constructed in 1980, included rooftop solar panels to heat water for use in building lavatories and an ice-storage tank so that the chilled water system could create ice during off-peak hours which would then cool the refrigerant during the day, thereby lowering peak hour electrical usage charges.
