Event Details

The Sacramento Kings and Turner Construction announced the 2014 calendar of outreach meetings for construction opportunities with the new Entertainment and Sports Center (ESC). The goal of these meetings is to educate and assist contractors interested in competing for the estimated nearly $300 million in construction work needed to build the new ESC. 

The outreach meetings will provide contractors with the opportunity to prepare for upcoming bid packages and the requirements associated with them. Topics will include: key dates for construction and bidding; local and small business participation goals; prequalification and certification requirements, workforce and apprenticeship goals, and technical assistance and networking opportunities. 

The outreach meetings represent one component of a broader outreach strategy that will also include extensive promotion and education via web and social media platforms, email distribution lists, databases, and additional small-group outreach events.

The scheduled dates and locations of future meetings are:

Thursday, May 1                  City Hall Council Chambers
5:00pm – 6:30pm                915 I Street

Wednesday, July 9                 City Hall Council Chambers
5:00pm – 6:30pm                 915 I Street

Thursday, September 4          Pannell Meadowview Community Center
5:00pm – 6:30pm                 2450 Meadowview Road

Monday, November 10           Universal Technical Institute
5:00pm – 6:30pm                 4100 Duckhorn Drive


Construction of the ESC is expected to create an estimated 3,000 on-site and off-site jobs during construction, including 200 – 300 apprenticeship opportunities. In recent months, Turner, Sacramento Kings, City of Sacramento and the Sacramento-Sierra Building Trades have collaborated to develop a series of targets to maximize the positive impact of the ESC project to the local economy. These include:

  • At least 60 percent of biddable work awarded to local businesses;
  • At least 20 percent of biddable work to small businesses; and
  • At least 70 apprentices on the project from disadvantaged backgrounds and/or communities.

Turner will facilitate these meetings in conjunction with other partners on the ESC project, including the Sacramento Kings, City of Sacramento, ICON Venue Group, and the Sacramento-Sierra Building Trades. 

The meetings will be open to the public; however, seating will be limited. To register for the first event (March 6), please visit http://kingsarenacontractoroutreach.eventbrite.com. Registration for future outreach events will be open to the public 10 days prior to each outreach event.
