DDA Approves Event Center Construction Subcontracts


Three subcontracts for the new Events Center project were recently approved by the Downtown Development Authority (DDA). The subcontracts were awarded to:

  • Midwest Steel, Inc., for structural steel ($50,676, 641)
  • Rohrscheib Sons Caissons, Inc., for drilled shafts ($2,745,000)
  • BAM Construction Services for below-grade waterproofing ($2,165,600)

The three bids are below the construction estimates and the companies have agreed to comply with the Business & Workforce Participation Plan for the project. Two of the companies are located in Detroit, and Rohrscheib Sons has agreed to subcontract 38 percent of its work to three Detroit-based businesses.

Under the terms of the Concession Management Agreement (CMA) between the DDA and Olympia Development of Michigan (ODM), the DDA has the right to approve the subcontracts between ODM’s general contractor Barton Mallow-Hunt Joint Venture in association with White Construction Co. and subcontractor amounts over $500,000.
