WINNIPEG ARENA GROUP SOLICITS DESIGN AND BUDGET

     The Manitoba Entertainment Complex (MEC) has hired Dominion
Hunt as construction manager of a proposed new arena in Winnipeg.
The site is yet unchosen, but MEC spokesperson Cam Osler says the
timeline for the building is "so tight" that the design needs to
be ready if the project is approved.  Dominion Hunt will "oversee
the design, budget and tendering of the building," including a
preliminary design and budget by mid-December.  Osler wouldn't
reveal the amount of the Dominion Hunt contract but said that it
is  "broken down into stages."  The contract is being paid with
MEC-raised funds, rather than the $1.5M which the city recently
guaranteed for the arena (Kim Guttormson, WINNIPEG FREE PRESS,
11/5).
