F.N. Thompson Co. of Charlotte and New York-based Turner Corp. announced yesterday they have formed Turner-Thompson Sports, a joint venture to specialize in planning and building professional sports stadiums and arenas, according to the CHARLOTTE OBSERVER. The two firms are currently working together on Carolinas Stadium in Charlotte, and according to Thompson Co. Exec VP Bill Caldwell, their experience together will give the new venture "an edge" in bidding for additional contracts. Doug Smith writes that knowing and working for Panthers Owner Jerry Richardson, who heads the NFL's Stadium Committee, will help Turner-Thompson Sports as other NFL teams look to build new stadiums. Smith notes the new company is now "jockeying" to build the new $292M stadium in Nashville that will be the Oilers' home (CHARLOTTE OBSERVER, 12/6).
