St. Louis, MO
Shane Company owners wanted a sharp-looking store, and Spiegelglass worked to turn a 17,000 square foot grocery store into the “biggest jewelry store in the Midwest”. In just 16 weeks, Spiegelglass renovated the interior with improvements including LED lighting to showcase the products, and the exterior which included specially sourced stones from Italy and Rudy Art Glass for the windows.
Owners Jon Kim and Lynn Weller were looking for a strategic partner to support their growth plans. Not only did they need a general contractor to work with multiple landlords, manage the architect, install kitchen equipment and more, but they really wanted a “quarterback” - someone who could do a full design-build and direct the extensive group of vendors involved in their growth.
Spiegelglass led the charge and designed a turnkey system that made the process seamless. Spiegelglass worked closely with the owners and partners on everything from scouting out potential location sites to sourcing affordable materials that retained the integrity of the design.
Central West End (St. Louis, MO)
When the owner of Lester’s set his sights on a beautiful historic building originally built in 1898, he knew it needed some special care before he could open for business.
In 12 weeks, Spiegelglass reinforced the building’s structure, built a rooftop bar, soundproofed, and added modern day amenities while retaining the building’s historical charm.
Plaza Frontenac (St. Louis, MO)
High-end watches demand a high-end storefront, and Omega’s Frontenac location is no exception. Spiegelglass was asked to receive, inspect and install more than 30 custom-made Italian fixtures, and build and install - to exacting standards - custom casework, an alarm system and security glass.
Town and Country, MO
Spiegelglass worked with Dr. Stacey Wallach to create a state-of-the-art veterinary hospital with Epoxy floors and the necessary space needed to serve pets and pet owners alike. In just nine weeks, Spiegelglass a built the 3,000 square foot space while following all veterinary guidelines and ensuring a clean and sanitary environment for both owners and pets.
The Women's Exchange
The Women’s Exchange wanted to get their new location built quickly so they could get back to their mission of “people helping people”. Spiegelglass built out additional space for consignors and consigned goods, while working closely with the nonprofit to ensure the style of the original location was retained.
Spiegelglass worked closely with the franchise owner and Menchie’s home office to build out the first franchise in the St. Louis area. With more than 1800 square feet and a seating capacity of 30, the store has five areas: a kitchen (not visible to guests), a yogurt wall, topping stations, service circle and indoor/outdoor seating. Through the glass storefront, customers can see a brightly colored interior, an S-shaped counter, and curved walls with distinctive ceramic tiles.
Spiegelglass prides itself on longstanding client relationships, and the company has been fortunate to work closely with First Watch on all of their St. Louis projects. Spiegelglass has built eight locations for First Watch, each completed in an aggressive eight week timeframe. Years later, when the chain decided to do a redesign on four of the locations, Spiegelglass was called upon to complete the projects - after hours - so there was no disruption to their business.
Chesterfield, MO & Ladue, MO
Franchise owner Gordon Manus called on Spiegelglass to build the first Original Pancake House in 2007, and then called back five years later to build out a second location in St. Louis.
For the Ladue location, Spiegelglass coordinated timing with the landlord’s portion of the work, and gutted the interior of the 6500 square foot space, using materials including wood and stone to turn the space into a warm and inviting environment.
As an independent cafe owner, Mike Altrudo had a lot to think about when he decided to open a second location. Fortunately, the construction process was not one of them.
From signing the lease to coordinating with the developer, Spiegelglass made sure not only that the cafe was ready for the opening of the center, but that it reflected the vision of the owner.
Richmond Heights, MO
While doing the work of supporting the Scholarship Foundation of St. Louis, ScholarShop found it needed more space but had limited room available in its building. Spiegelglass worked with management to turn an existing lobby into usable space, creating new offices and a waiting area - all while store operations continued.
St. Louis, MO
Security is always an important part of the building process, but when the client deals in cash, an elevated security plan is required.
Spiegelglass worked closely with Cash America to secure its building - which remained open during construction - while remodeling both the interior and exterior of the store. The six week remodel was completed safely and securely, and Spiegelglass was called upon to complete several additional Cash America projects in the St. Louis area.
