One of the hallmarks of a J.E. FOSTER BUILDING COMPANY project is personal service and contact. Regardless of the size or scope of your project, it will start with a member of our executive staff who will be your single source to provide estimating and project management throughout your entire construction process. Skill, Integrity and Responsibility – we strive to achieve those traits with every project.

President and founder Josh Foster takes a personal interest in every project, a philosophy shared by each member of the executive team.

J.E. FOSTER BUILDING COMPANY was established in 1997 as an S Corporation in the State of Missouri. We operate out of a 10,000sf facility located in Green Park, MO and have heated warehouse capabilities. We also have a 10,000sf facility in Kansas City, MO that supports the work in the western part of the State. In the fall of 2023, we will add a 15,500sf facility also in Green Park, MO to support the added growth and expansion needs in the St. Louis Area. As a Union General Contractor, we employ 40 to 50 tradesmen and self perform small concrete, rough/finish carpentry and general laborer duties. We are fully insured and bondable ($25 million single project, $50 million aggregate). We have been a member of the AGC of St. Louis since 1998 and have been awarded the General Contractor of the Year by the Midwest Council of the ASA six times in nine years.
