The March meeting featured a tour of the St. Louis Central Public Library in the downtown neighborhood at 1301 Olive Street. The tour included multiple stops and representatives from William Tao & Associates, who served as the MEP engineer of record, were available to provide project overviews and highlight some of the technical aspects of the historic renovation. Additional information was provided concerning the energy efficient design and the lessons learned when working in a historic building.
Thank you to all our presenters and for the great tour!
