ST. LOUIS, MO – Kwame Building Group (KWAME) has been selected as the MLS4THELOU Ownership Group’s representative and program manager for St. Louis’ new Major League Soccer (MLS) stadium.

KWAME is serving an integral role in the pre-construction phase, including project planning and scheduling; value engineering and budgeting; selecting project partners and maximizing MBE/WBE participation; coordinating with the city and utility companies; and other project management.
