    vision for

    adding

    onto an

    iconic

    structure

    that has

    been a

    part of

    Forest

    Park since

    1904.

    However,

  • because of

    its green

    building

    practices

    and

    sustainability.

    LEED

    Gold

    certification

    means

    that Saint

    Louis Art

    Museum

    has built a

    very

    socially

    responsible

    building

    while

    providing

    the

    citizens of

    the St.

    Louis

    region a

    premier

    facility to

    view art,

    said Roger

    McFarland,

    group vice

    president

  • Louis for

    HOK, the

    architect

    of record

    for the

    expansion.

    The

    construction

    of the new

    facility

    involved

    innovative

    collaboration

    between

    David

    Chipperfield

    Architects

    and HOK.

    HOK

    signed a

    unique

    arrangement

    with the

    Saint

    Louis Art

    Museum

    and David

    Chipperfields

    office in

    which it

    was a

    three-

    party

  • agreement

    where

    both firms

    worked

    directly

    for the

    museum,

    McFarland

    said. In

    (HOKs)

    role, we

    were

    responsible

    for

    coordinating

    all

    technical

    issues,

    leadership

    of the

    engineering

    and

    consulting

    teams and

    the

    delivery of

    the

    project.

    During

    construction,

    more than

    97 percent

    of landfill

  • waste

    created by

    the

    building

    process

    was

    diverted

    and

    reused,

    according

    to

    museum

    officials.

    An

    additional

    82 percent

    of wood

    building

    material

    used in the

    construction

    process

    was

    harvested

    from

    forest

    areas

    certified

    by the

    Forest

    Stewardship

    Council

    (FSC) and

  • the new

    parking

    garage will

    include

    partial

    covering

    by a green

    roof that

    has 30

    inches of

    dirt, grass

    and plants

    to

    minimize

    heat

    absorption

    from the

    sun. The

    new

    parking

    garage will

    feature

    reserved

    spaces for

    both fuel

    efficient

    cars and

    low

    emissions

    vehicles.

    Inside and

    out, low-

    flow

  • plumbing

    for

    restaurants

    and

    kitchen

    spaces will

    curtail

    water use,

    while

    irrigation

    and

    storm-

    water

    management

    systems

    will

    diminish

    soil

    erosion. A

    new boiler

    system

    will

    service the

    entire

    museum

    campus,

    while a

    computerized

    system

    delivers

    under-

    the-floor

    air

  • distribution

    that

    respects

    the

    fragility of

    the

    museum

    collection.

    The

    expansion

    will allow

    the

    museum

    to put

    more

    works on

    view in

    In

    addition,

    the

    expansion

    will allow

    the

    museum

    to upgrade

    amenities,

    including

    a 300-car,

    underground

    parking

    garage and

    a 2,500-

    square-

    According

    In 2006,

    the Saint

    Louis Art

    Museums

    commissioners

    selected

    HOK, a St.

    Louis-

    based

    design,

    architecture,

    engineering

    and

    planning

    firm with

    more than

    24 offices

    around the

    world, as

  • the

    architect

    of record

    for the

    East

    Building

    expansion

    project.

    HOK,

    which had

    2012

    revenue of

    $406

    million, is

    merging

    contemporary

    architecture

    with

    sustainable

    design in

    the 21 new

    galleries

    built in the

    new

    facility.

    The

    expansion

    will

    provide 30

    percent

    more

    gallery

    space for

  • the

    museum

    while

    minimizing

    the

    environmental

    impact

    created by

    construction.

    The East

    Building

    will

    feature

    ceiling to

    floor

    windows,

    an oak

    floor, a

    100-seat

    restaurant

    and a

    renovated

    auditorium.

    Materials

    used for

    the

    building

    include

    glass and

    stone

    polished

    to

    replicate

  • the

    original

    style of the

    existing

    Saint

    Louis Art

    Museum.

    The

    concrete

    used for

    construction

    is made

    with

    minerals

    and rocks

    from the

    Missouri

    River.

    The team

    of

    architects

    and

    contractors

    working

    on the

    project

    exceeded

    rigorous

    sustainability

    standards

    while not

    compromising

    either the
