Construction Workshop:  An Open House for Infrastructure Contractors

 

The Honolulu Rail Transit project will host a workshop on June 12, 2008 at the Neal Blaisdell Center.  The workshop will outline the project schedule and opportunities for designers, contractors, subcontractors and suppliers. This workshop will also provide opportunities for firms to begin teaming for various contracts associated with the Rail Transit Project. As an open-house style event the workshop will facilitate communication among the project team, contractors, subcontractors, and various groups within the construction industry.

 

“One of our primary goals is to make sure that local companies are given every opportunity to work on this project,” said Mayor Mufi Hannemann.  “We really want to encourage teaming so that the capability of large firms can be complemented by the skill and firsthand knowledge of smaller companies.  Over the course of the rail transit project’s construction, we estimate that there will be 4,700 construction jobs generated annually with another 6,600 jobs in indirect employment, so there is lots of opportunity here,” the Mayor added.

 

Workshop topics include: project overview, project implementation schedule, potential civil contract packaging and procurement process, contract components and construction features, and additional City of Honolulu project opportunities

 

At the conclusion of the workshop, project team members will be available for consultation with individual companies.

 

Registration fee is $25 and includes continental breakfast and box lunch. Seating is limited.  Registration forms are available at:  www.honolulutransit.org.  More information is also available via the workshop information line at: 808-535-6243
