Steel Beams, Set-Asides Subject of New Penguins’ Arena Talk
Thu January 01, 2009 - Northeast Edition Construction Equipment Guide
PITTSBURGH (AP) A new $321 million arena for the Pittsburgh Penguins is close to meeting goals for minority and female set-asides, and the structural steel should begin going up soon.
Those are the highlights of an update on the building’s progress by the arena’s general contractor, P.J. Dick-Hunt.
A 200-ft. (61 m) construction crane put the first steel beams in place.
The city-county Sports and Exhibition Authority wants 25 percent of the construction work done by minority-owned firms and 10 percent by female-owned firms. So far, 24 percent of the work is being done by minority firms and 6 percent by female-owned companies.
