Subcontractors interested in modifying Time Warner Cable Arena for the Democratic National Convention have been asked to respond to a request for proposals.
Only those firms that were prequalified can submit proposals. The deadline to turn in prequalification forms to the construction-management team was March 1. Charlotte-based construction company Rodgers, Indianapolis-based Hunt Construction Group, Atlanta-based developer H.J. Russell & Co. and Lanham, Md.-based trade show-management company Hargrove constitute the construction-management team.
The Democratic National Convention Committee said the release of the RFP is one of the final steps in the subcontracting process.
The RFP is for scaffolding/platforms and temporary stairs, millwork, doors and hardware, drywall and framing, painting and wall covering and fixed seating.
In the coming weeks, RFPs will be issued for acoustical panel ceilings, carpentry, cleaning, electrical, fencing and site work and barricades, information technology and cabling, rigging, warehouse and storage and transport.
All RFPs are at demconvention.com, the DNCC said.
In October, the DNCC awarded contracts for construction management and event and exposition services to the Hargrove, Rodgers, Russell and Hunt team. That group, the DNCC said, is made of firms that have strong ties to Charlotte and North Carolina and a record of working with union labor, women, minorities and people with disabilities.
