ST. LOUIS — St. Louis-based KAI Design & Build has begun constructing Harris-Stowe State University’s new Early Childhood Development and Parenting Education Center located at 3026 Laclede Ave. in St. Louis. Construction of the $17 million project is underway, and slated for completion in July 2009. Adrian Luchini is serving as designer for the project. The 47,885-square-foot building, which is situated adjacent to the campus’ main entry on Compton Avenue, will house children from infants to pre-kindergarten, as well as the university’s Early Childhood Education department. The children and their teachers will occupy the main level, with the higher education component occupying the second floor. Amenities at the facility include a parents’ library and education room, a multi-purpose room with full kitchen, smart board technology in each classroom, a student computer lounge, and a large multimedia professional development classroom/lecture hall. KAI Design & Build is seeking LEED Silver certification for the project.
