The decision to build, expand or modernize convention centers and cultural attractions is often driven by complex and urgent forces - economic growth, the need to revitalize blighted areas or competition from nearby municipalities. Also typical of these facilities are their challenging urban sites and tightly prescribed timetables and budgets.

As a national leader in public assembly construction, we work to:

  • Minimize disruption to traffic and the surrounding business community
  • Maintain ongoing operations and revenue-generating event schedules without interruption during renovation and expansion projects
  • Maximize the limited funds available for these projects through value engineering and cost control
  • Meet the challenges of space, time and cost, allowing customers to reap long-term economic benefits
