Piazza Imo and GS & S
Chris Hyams from GS & S learned about the initiative in its early stages from Joe Ambrose and was quick to offer any assistance that he and his team could provide. Ultimately, several St. Louis area construction companies were involved, and GS&S took care of all of the structural concrete for the project.
Chris and the whole GS&S team have been honored to be a part of building this historic landmark in one of St. Louis’s most unique and treasured neighborhoods, “The Hill”. We look forward to enjoying the piazza with our families for decades to come.
