We are very excited to once again be featured in St. Louis Construction News and Review Magazine. This time, due to our involvement in a project at the Robert A. Young Building.
Robert A Young Federal Building To Get Innovative Seismic Retrofit
Constructed in 1933, the 20-story, concrete-framed RAY building was originally a warehouse for the Terminal Railroad Association before being purchased by the federal government in 1941. Its location, at the corner of Spruce and Tucker in downtown St. Louis, sits just 166 miles from the New Madrid fault. In 2014, after witnessing an increase in seismic activity in this area, the Obama Administration began looking into earthquake proofing the structure for the safety of its tenants.
IFS is proud to be a part of this seismic retrofit project because of its unique design and innovation. Furthermore, IFS is excited to be a part of McCarthy’s design-build team for the project.
