Project Overview

Busch Stadium is the home of the St. Louis Cardinals. Construction of the new downtown ballpark was completed on April 10, 2006, with a portion of the new structure occupying the former stadium’s footprint. The stadium offers a retro-classic feel, with panoramic views of the downtown skyline and over 46,000 seats and 61 luxury suites. The project size is approximately 1.2 million square feet. Quest Energy Group worked closely with Azimuth Energy, the official energy manager for the stadium, as part of a full-scale energy analysis and audit effort in order to identify potential energy conservation measures for the stadium.
