WINNIPEG ARENA GROUP SOLICITS DESIGN AND BUDGET
Published November 7, 1994
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).
