Central Plant Building Construction

McGrath has been working with Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital since 1994. In 1997 we published a 7–10 year Master Plan to replace or upgrade all existing mechanical/electrical systems and utility infrastructure. The plan includes 12 sequentially phased projects representing approximately $28M in construction costs.

In 2007 McGrath completed design and construction of a new 125,000 SF, 11 Operating Rooms & 60 Bed NICU Project for Cardinal Glennon. The project includes extensive demolition and remodel of existing areas within the existing Hospital to accommodate the new addition.

We completed a new Power Plant Building to accommodate their existing facility and south campus expansion which includes:

  • 2,000 HP of new high pressure steam generation.
  • Emergency power generation expandable to 3750 Kw.
  • New electrical sub-station and power distribution.
  • Upgrading the existing chilled water plant by 2,000 tons.
