McCarthy-Led Team to Construct $711.7M Campus for NGA in St. Louis

The campus will be built on a 97-acre site in the St. Louis Place neighborhood.

ST. LOUIS — McCarthy HITT, a joint venture of McCarthy Building Cos. Inc., HITT Contracting, Black & Veatch Special Projects Corp., Gensler and Akima LLC, has been selected by the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) to build its new campus in north St. Louis. The total project budget of about $1.7 billion includes the McCarthy HITT contract of $711.7 million, land procurement, post-construction outfitting of the building and small business construction projects. Funds are appropriated through the Pentagon’s military construction budget and Congress has authorized spending over several budget cycles.

The campus will be built on a 97-acre site at Jefferson and Cass avenues. Designed to replace the current NGA facility located south of downtown, the new development will feature a 712,000-square-foot office building, parking garages, a visitor center, remote inspection facility and access control points. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will oversee design and construction. Preliminary work beginning this spring will include various design and pre-construction activities, submittals and joint planning. Major construction work will begin in early 2020, with plans for the campus to be operational in 2025. NGA has had a presence in St. Louis for seven decades and currently employs more than 3,000 workers locally.
