KWAME served as Program Manager on the $70 million Airport Experience Program, the largest renovation in the history of Lambert-St. Louis International Airport.
KWAME provided oversight, programming, design coordination and procurement, and managing implementation of the five-year phased program to redefine, renovate and enhance the terminal, concourse and passenger support facilities.
The program included restoration of Lambert’s historic domed ceilings, replacement of the in-bound baggage system and carousels, and a $1.5 million new roadway signage program. The airport’s Terminal 1 and the A, B and C Concourses were renovated with improved security checkpoints; new and improved restrooms, restaurants and stores, ticketing counters, inbound baggage system, signage, and flooring, ceilings and wall coverings.
KWAME played a key role in the emergency response when an EF-4 tornado hit Lambert-St. Louis International Airport in April, 2011, destroying some of the work already completed on the Airport Experience Program. KWAME and other team members helped the airport return to full capacity within just 48 hours, and work on Phase II of the $70 million interior renovation continued shortly thereafter.
