BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - Working is proceeding on a building a multi-million dollar domed stadium for Birmingham.
On Wednesday, the BJCC board received an update on efforts to put together a design team to build the dome next to the BJCC."I think it's across the board whether it's a discipline, whether it's a minority firm or woman owned firm. Even restricting it to a Birmingham firm we are finding a lot of viable resources." says Jack Boyle, of the Kansas City Mo. company, Populous.
The BJCC board is demanding Populous include 50% Birmingham firms and 30% minority firms."So you are pulling numerous people together who have to work together. Se we have to find that mix of people that want to work together. So we are finding that." says Bruce Beahm of Populous.
