KWAME completed work on a new $15 million freshman residence hall and dining facility at Harris-Stowe State University in St. Louis in 2011. A ceremony was held to dedicate the new building in honor of former St. Louis Mayor Freeman Bosley, Jr., a longtime advocate of the university and the first African-American mayor of St. Louis.
KWAME managed the year-long construction project, providing pre-construction and construction management services, and currently serves as program manager for all Harris-Stowe capital improvement projects.
The four-story environmentally friendly residence hall houses up to 200 students in single- and double-bedroom suites with furnished living rooms, kitchenettes, dining areas and private bathrooms. Every floor includes a lounge and two quiet study rooms in each wing. Other building amenities include a cardio fitness room, laundry facility, mailboxes, community kitchen, 24-hour vending and a public safety office, all located on the ground floor.
The new state-of-the-art campus dining facility serves students from both residence halls with seating for 300, a private meeting room and an outdoor patio.
Harris-Stowe was founded more than 150 years ago but became a residential campus in 2006 when it opened Gillespie Resident Hall and Student Center. KWAME also provided pre-construction and construction management services on that project as well as Harris-Stowe’s William L. Clay Sr. Early Childhood Center, the Emerson Performance Center and the Anheuser-Busch School of Business South Campus.
