First Heartland Capital



The 31,700 SF, Class A+ two story office building constructed in Lake St. Louis, Missouri on a 3.41 acre site added to the exponential development and population growth within west St. Charles County. From large curtain wall systems to interior water features within the lobby, this custom design-build / build-to-suit office building for First Heartland Capital brought high end finishes and materials into play throughout the facility.


The fun and exciting aspect of the project yet its largest challenge was the use of so many high-end specialty materials and finishes integrated together and still meeting the tight timelines as it relates to the lead times of ordering, receiving and installing the products. Many of the products came from overseas, out of Europe, and significant coordination between the Echelon, Architectural and Engineering teams was required prior to finalizing quantities and model numbers to verify we would receive the correct numbers and material to integrate in with the other products selected for the finishes.


The team’s approach to address these challenges were really about “attention to details” and constant and clear communications between the design and construction team. The success of the final product stemmed from accurately receiving so many building items such as the doors and hardware, access readers, wood paneling, flooring materials etc.


At the end of the day, the client and his employees went from a smaller Class B multitenant building to a state of the art Class A+ office facility that will provide a beautiful working environment and growth opportunity for many years to come.
