CCEB Venue Partners Announce Community Outreach Session for Spirit Communications Park
COLUMBIA, SC — CCEB Venue Partners will continue its kick-off of the Spirit Communications Park project with an outreach session on Wednesday, February 25, 2015 from 5pm to 7pm. Subcontractors, suppliers, and the community at large are invited to attend.
CCEB Venue Partners is the Construction Manager at Risk for this City of Columbia project, which many are touting as history-making.
James Mitchell, community coordinator, says, “Spirit Communications Park is the largest construction venture in City of Columbia history. This project will have a significant impact on the economic and societal trajectory of the City. We encourage subcontractors and suppliers to attend the outreach session so they can learn how to be a part of bringing this iconic vision to life.”
At the outreach session, CCEB Venue Partners will outline in detail the scopes of work the project requires, as well as how subcontractors may be able to procure a contact to work on the project.
“The City of Columbia has made it very clear on its aspirational goals for LBE (Local Business Enterprise) and MBE (Minority Business Enterprise) participation on this project. In addition, we know the primary question subcontractors want answered is how they can increase their chance of working on this project so they can ultimately build capacity. We intend to address that directly at this meeting.” Mitchell says.
Identified scopes of work are: fencing, concrete, masonry, structural steel, steel handrails, rough carpentry, millwork, roofing, waterproofing/insulation, stucco, doors and hardware, glass/glazing/storefront, drywall, painting, acoustical ceiling tiles, flooring, lockers, signage, toilet accessories, toilet partitions, baseball field, wall padding, netting, benches, appliances, blinds, elevators, fire protection, plumbing, HVAC, electrical, and fire alarm.
The community and media are invited to attend. For more information and to RSVP, visit SpiritCommunicationsParkOutreach.eventbrite.com.
