Public Works Project of the Year Award (Large), Transportation category. 

“Kiener Plaza”.Kiener Plaza is a 3-acre park nestled in the heart of downtown St. Louis. Originally dedicated in 1962, it was part of the massive urban redevelopment of the city’s downtown area that accompanied the construction of the Gateway Arch and Busch Stadium. This project was a complete renovation of Kiener Plaza—the second in its history. A primary goal for this project was to expand the CityArchRiver project westward into downtown to include Kiener Plaza. All of the goals of the larger CityArchRiver project for enhanced sustainability, accessibility, and to create a world class destination were also extended to the renovation of Kiener Plaza.  

The team consisted of City of St. Louis, Great Rivers Greenway, Gateway Arch Park Foundation and BCI Contractors, Inc.  

Public Works Project of the Year Award (Small), Transportation category. 

“Woodson Terrace Community Center Access Repairs”.After careful consideration of using asphalt the team decided to use concrete.  The project scope included approximately 25,155 square foot entry road, with the design of 7 inch thick, non-reinforced concrete over 4 inches of rock with 8 inch paving at the trash enclosure. There was a tight schedule to reduce disturbance to the neighboring area. After site surveying, installation of silt and safety fence, they broke ground.  At just over a month, the project was completed to the satisfaction of the City of Woodson Terrace.  

The team consisted of City of Woodson Terrace, Bax Engineering, Bhasin Associates, and Vee-Jay Cement Contracting Co., Inc.  

Public Works Project of the Year Award (Large), Structures category. 

“Wentzville City Hall”.  In 2007 the City of Wentzville undertook the first serious steps in implementing plans for the construction of a new City Hall to meet the needs of a rapidly-growing community and consolidate the operations from three separate facilities. At that time the needs analysis resulted in a building with a footprint of approximately 64,000 square feet.  Almost a decade later, this goal was achieved through an innovative and efficient design process resulting in a 44,474 square foot two-story structure with partial basement housing the municipal governmental operations of the City of Wentzville. Departments housed in the structure include City Administration, Human Resources, Community Development, Economic Development, Parks & Recreation, Public Works, and Finance, which includes Procurement, Courts and Information Technology.
