The Carnahan Memorial Garden is an oasis in the center of the Capitol Complex in Jefferson City. A popular wedding and event venue, the pergola and pavilion in the garden needed restoration. The State of Missouri selected Prost Builders to do this historic restoration using clear heart redwood lumber. This was a special project for the First Lady of Missouri, Mrs. Parsons, since the work was taking place only a few short steps from the Governor’s Mansion. The First Lady was a frequent “construction inspector,” so everything had to be perfect.
Prost Builder’s carpentry crew was able to deliver that perfection this summer. The Prost Team was lead by Molly Scott, Construction Project Manager, and Troy Wieburg, Superintendent. Future couples who decide to get married in the Memorial Garden will now enjoy a newly-restored pergola and pavilion.
Missouri Department of Conservation Renovation
Prost Builders recently completed the entire exterior renovation of the Missouri Department of Conservation’s Information Technology Building. New standing seam roof, new siding, and new windows give the building a fresh look and a long-lasting exterior finish. Project Manager Molly Scott and Superintendent Troy Wieburg lead the Prost team in completing this project to everyone’s satisfaction.
Community Safe Room Addition
Prost Builders is pleased to be working with The School of the Osage on the construction of a community safe room, which will be located behind the school and will have a safe capacity of 563 persons. When not being used during storm emergencies, the facility will function as classroom space, meeting rooms, locker rooms for both boys and girls soccer, a visitors locker room, middle school wrestling practice facility, coaches offices, training room, and an officials changing area. The facility will also include guest restrooms, concessions area, and storage. Funding for the project is from a Federal Emergency Management Agency Hazard Mitigation Grant. The facilities will be ready for the start of the Fall school year. The soccer coach and team are really looking forward to the new facilities. The Prost on-site team is lead by Jeremy Schulte, a 28-year employee of Prost Builders and Kevin Fahy, Construction Project Manager, who will be retiring after this project is complete.
