Aschinger Electric Teams with IBEW To Complete the New Meramec Valley Branch Library

Project is the 17th St. Louis County Library Branch

Improvement by Electrical Connection Membership

ST. LOUIS – St. Louis County Library’s new Meramec Valley Branch debuted on May 15, 2019.  It is the 17th branch to be modernized by the Electrical Connection partnership comprised of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) Local 1 and the St. Louis Chapter of the National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA).  NECA contractor Aschinger Electric Co. completed the technology-infused library, taking over work from Briner Electric Co. which it acquired in 2018.   The library was designed by Mackey Mitchell Architects and Bond Architects. Brinkmann Constructors was the construction manager. 

The new $5.6 million Meramec Valley Branch located at 1501 San Simeon Way is more than 21,000 square feet and replaces a 2,690-square-foot branch that was the smallest in St. Louis County Library system.  It is infused with the latest technology for research and features a Discovery Zone for children, private study rooms, a quiet reading room, a community meeting room, a business center, a community garden, a walking path and outdoor reading deck.

NECA contractors and IBEW have performed electrical installations on 16 other branches in the St. Louis County Library system including Grant’s View, Weber Road, Jamestown Bluffs, Indian Trails, Rock Road, Samuel Sachs, Cliff Cave, Prairie Commons, Natural Bridge, Oak Bend, Bridgeton Trails, Florissant Valley, Daniel Boone, Grand Glaize, Mid-County and Thornhill branches.  The projects have entailed a wide variety of complexities including electrical, fire alarm, decorative and energy efficient lighting, generators for emergency lighting, and technology improvements for new and renovated branches. 

The projects are part of a multi-year capital improvement campaign called Your Library Renewed to improve a total of 19 branches. In 2012, voters approved a $.06 tax increase to fund new facilities and upgrades to existing structures, as well as enhanced library programs and services. More information on all of the library improvements including images can be found at https://www.slcl.org/content/your-library-renewed.

Now celebrating its 107th year of service, Aschinger Electric is a four generation, family-owned electrical and communications contractor serving the commercial, industrial, educational and health care markets.  Learn more at www.aschinger.com

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING

  • Your foreman was irreplaceable in assisting us prepare for the event in the week preceding it, as well as helpful in setting up generators and other electrical equipment the morning of the event. He worked closely with our own staff electricians, and ensured that the event electricity was provided as safe and aesthetically pleasing as possible.
  • “We were quite pleased with Aschinger.  Our previous infrascan company wasn’t nearly as thorough.”

  • “Aschinger Electric completed the installation of the pole light on the John Carrol Parking Lot for the Mural painting on the exterior wall of McGannon Hall. It looks great, Aschinger Electric did a wonderful job.”

  • “I just received a phone call from Brian Sword at Gander Mountain to tell me how happy he is with the Fenton install. Please let Aschinger know that we appreciate their efforts. Nothing better than getting this type of call, especially with the eyes on this one. This is a team effort from design, engineering and implementation to make this happen.”

     

     

     

     

  • “Over my career I have had the pleasure of working with a handful of craft workers who possess a truly advanced set of talents and knowledge, and I would certainly put Jeff in this category. We all rely heavily on our key field supervisors like Jeff and I think sometimes take their superior performance for granted. That is why I wanted to take the time to make you and your organization aware of the valuable asset that Jeff is to Aschinger Electric.”

  • “We truly appreciate your efforts in all aspects of the construction process, and hope that we will soon be working together again on another project.”
