GROUPS BID ON OAKLAND COLISEUM FACE-LIFT
Published February 16, 1996
Plans to reconstruct the Oakland-Alameda Coliseum are "moving ahead quickly," as the Coliseum Board announced three construction/architecture firms will compete for the project to rebuild the Warriors' home. Contractor Huber, Hunt & Nichols/Swinerton-Walberg teamed with architect Ellerbe Beckett; PCL Construction Services joined with Architect Nadmore, Bain, Bradley & Johansen; and Tutor-Saliba Corp. joined with Howard, Needles, Tammen & Bergendoff. All will present design and construction proposals based on a set cost. The two groups not selected for the project will receive an honorarium of $100,000 each; the winner gets $100M worth of work. A lease agreement between the arena and Warriors is expected to be completed by late next week (Robert Salladay, OAKLAND TRIBUNE, 2/15).
