Clayco has been the design-builder on multiple of the Centene Corporations projects, including their local St. Louis headquarters and parking garage. Clayco is currently the construction manager overseeing the expansion of Centene's campus project. This $770 million investment includes a new structure adjacent to the existing Centene Plaza HQ and will feature new office space, residential living, ground level retail, structured parking and a civic center complete with a full-scale auditorium.
The Centene Plaza Headquarters project was a 21-story office tower with a 1,700-space parking garage and a public plaza with decorative landscaping, including outdoor seating, a waterfall and a fire pit. The building and pedestrian entertainment plaza feature striking artwork by Liam Gillick, such as an illuminated colored glass canopy connecting the 12-story garage to the office tower.
As a national healthcare provider, Centene’s commitment to sustainability and healthy living drove its desire to construct a high-performance LEED certified facility.

The newly expanded Centene Centre will promote a healthy environment for all patrons through its creation of pedestrian-friendly, fully-landscaped harscape and public green spaces. The new buildings will be environmentally friendly and will be LEED Gold certified.
This expansion is expected to bring 2,000 high-quality jobs to Clayton, with nearly half of these jobs being new to the state of Missouri. The proposed expansion is designed to meet Centene’s growth projections, while also creating a vibrant, mixed-use development that fits into the City of Clayton’s Downtown Master Plan.
