Kwame Building Group served as the Construction Manager at Risk to expand and renovate the new weight room at Cardinal Ritter College Preparatory High School in St. Louis to help the school develop and extend their athletic program and create a space that enhances the learning experience for students. The building’s footprint was expanded by 1,200sf. The new weight room adds collegiate level exercise equipment, a commercial washer and dryer , charging station, a large amount of natural light and direct access to outdoor fields. The KWAME team managed the design and construction process, performed cost estimates, produced project schedules and reviewed the design team’s deliverables. Knoebel Construction was the general contractor partner for the project. The architect was JEMA.
“This facility is nothing short of state of the art. It’s on a collegiate level and fits nicely into our strategic health and wellness plan,” said Tamiko Armstead, president of Cardinal Ritter.
