The Project 


The Opportunity


Who Should Attend

A design build team led by Lendlease (US) Construction LMB Inc. and Turner Construction — with tvsdesign — was selected by Empire State Development Corporation to oversee the expansion of the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center.

The expansion will reroute 20,000 event-related trucks off area streets each year, reducing the move-in and move-out process for events by 30% and freeing up an additional 20 days for new events.

From mechanical and information technology systems to interior construction and finishing, there are a plethora of opportunities for certified MWBEs and SDVOBs.

This event is strategically designed to connect MWBEs and SDVOBs and key decision makers on the design build team, provide guidance of the prequalification process and review the upcoming opportunities on the historic Jacob K. Javits Convention Center Expansion Project.

This conference is for everyone!

To build the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center Expansion Project, the Lendlease Turner design build team will need prime contractors, subcontractors, certified MWBEs and SDVOBs, consultants and manufacturers.

The project will include a Project Labor Agreement (PLA) as well as special carve out for contractors up to $2.5 million for non-union certified small businesses.
