CONSTRUCTION VENTURE FORMED SPECIALIZING IN STADIUMS

     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).
