THREE SELECTED FOR CHARLESTON CIVIC CENTER DESIGN BUILD PROJECT

 

Contractors and architects, a number of which are CAWV members, submitted their qualifications to become the design-build team for a $59 million upgrade and expansion to the Charleston Civic Center.  The Civic Center Board interviewed all four teams and selected three to proceed to the Request for Proposal stage. Interviews were held Wednesday, Dec. 17. The three teams have until March 11 to submit their proposals. The two teams not selected will receive a $100,000 stipend for their efforts. 

 

The three firms are: BBL Carlton, with ZMM Architects; Pray Construction Company and P.J.Dick Corp., with Silling Associates; and Mascaro Construction, with GBBN Architects and Bastian & Harris Architects. Welty Building, with Prayworks and HKS, Inc. missed the cut.

AGC-BACKED PENSION REFORM INCLUDED IN FEDERAL SPENDING BILL

 

On December 13, the Senate voted 56-40 in favor of the $1.1 trillion cromnibus bill that had the House in turmoil earlier last week. Dubbed cromnibus because it’s part omnibus and part continuing resolution, the nine-month spending bill now awaits the president's signature. It funds federal agencies through the end of the fiscal year with the exception of the Department of Homeland Security which is funded only through Feb. 27, 2015. A series of association-backed multi-employer pension reforms, designed to allow employers and employees the opportunity to protect and improve retirement programs, is included in the Consolidated and Further Continuing Act of 2015. 

 

AGC CEO Steve Sandherr released the following statement after the House passed the omnibus bill last week. "The most important aspect of these new reform measures is that they finally provide employers and employees with the flexibility to voluntarily act to shore up multi-employer retirement plans. Without these new measures, thousands of retirees would likely have been forced to accept the savage cuts to their retirement benefits that come when the Pension Benefit Guarantee Corporation is forced to step in. This is the culmination of three years of joint labor and management cooperation to shore up troubled plans. The Senate and President Obama must move quickly to enact these needed reform measures so that thousands of employees and their employers can have the tools needed to protect their hard-earned investments and benefits."
