Charlotte-based construction company Rodgers is part of a team that has won the construction management contract for the 2012 Democratic National Convention.
The DNC today announced the recipients of the construction manager, event architect and exposition and event services provider contracts.
The construction manager will be a partnership between Rodgers, Indianapolis-based Hunt Construction Group and Atlanta-based H.J. Russell and Co., according to a press release from the DNCC.
The construction manager will oversee the temporary modification and the restoration of Time Warner Cable Arena following the convention. The construction manager will also serve as a lead agency and manage subcontractors and the event architect.
The event architect contract will be a partnership between Kansas City, Mo.-based Populous and Charlotte-based Neighboring Concepts. The event architect will be responsible for architectural and design planning needs for the convention and for designing a convention venue.
The exposition and event services provider will be Lanham, Md.-based Hargrove Inc., which is partnering with Charlotte-based McFarland Corbitt Construction on minority business enterprise outreach. The exposition and event services provider will handle project management, event scheduling and design and decor, as well as provide rentals and furnishings to staff and members of the media who will use the Charlotte Convention Center during convention week.
A general information meeting for subcontracting opportunities is scheduled for Nov. 21 in Charlotte. For more information, go to charlottein2012.com.
