Poettker Construction Company was recently awarded a bronze Building Team Award by Building Design+Construction for its new state-of-the-art headquarters, finished in October 2019. The Building Team Awards highlight the best projects across the country, exemplifying the collaboration between owner, architect, engineer and contractor to produce buildings that exhibit architectural and construction excellence.
“We are thrilled to receive this recognition for our very own headquarters, which is a testament to the outstanding partnerships we have built with local firms and consultants over the years,” said Keith Poettker, president of Poettker Construction. “Poettker’s new headquarters is a culmination of nearly a decade of planning and collaboration and this honor couldn’t come at a more perfect time as we celebrate 40 years in business.”
Poettker’s 40,000-sq. ft. headquarters and 12,000-sq. ft. warehouse was designed by St. Louis-based architecture and interior design firm Oculus Inc., who was engaged by Poettker to help with space planning and programming for the new headquarters. Other design consultants included Netemeyer Engineering Associates Inc as civil engineer, IMEG of St. Louis as structural engineer, BRiC Partnership of Belleville as the MEPFP coordinator and DTLS of St. Louis as the landscape architect.
Now in its 22nd year, the BD+C Building Team Awards serves as the industry’s only recognition program to honor projects that achieve excellence in both design/construction and collaboration of the architecture, engineering, construction, and owner (AEC/O) team. Poettker’s headquarters is one of only two Bronze winners, and one of 12 total projects to be selected by a 15-member Building Team Awards jury and the BD+C editorial team this year.
