Building Memories


Your cultural and entertainment projects demand a perfect balance of imagination and practicality. Our team is focused on your goals, which not only include construction, but ultimately, the creation of memories your visitors will cherish for a lifetime.

The decision to build, expand or modernize cultural attractions is often driven by economic growth, the need to revitalize blighted areas or competition from nearby municipalities. Often, these facilities have challenging urban sites and tightly prescribed timetables and budgets.

We work to:

  • 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
  • Minimize disruption to traffic and the surrounding business community
  • Maintain ongoing operations and revenue-generating event schedules without interruption during renovation and expansion projects
