MGM Springfield - On Site
One in a Series of Periodic Site Updates
Call Goes Out for Bidders
Focus on Fencing and Demolition/Abatement of Zanetti School
SPRINGFIELD (MA), Jan. 29, 2015
MGM Resorts International (NYSE: MGM) today announced that MGM Springfield is inviting site fencing and demolition/abatement contractors to attend meetings to learn more about contractor opportunities for early work.
This outreach follows recent MGM Springfield news of tenant-relocation planning and communications as well as important changes to parking in the South End. These recent activities are a continuum of site preparations for MGM Springfield's spring groundbreaking, as well as an announcement of its general contractor.
Michael Mathis, MGM Springfield President said, "We are picking up steam as we head into spring. Much of the early construction activity will involve preparing the site for initial demolition so we have a productive construction season and stay on schedule."
In order to stay compliant with permitting requirements, demolition of the Zanetti School will begin in the coming weeks. MGM Springfield construction management representatives will interview interested bidders for site fencing and demolition/abatement services only for the Zanetti School demolition area. Interested bidders will learn about the scope of work for site fencing and demolition/abatement; how to participate in the pre-qualification process; and MGM Springfield's policy on minority contractors, vendors, and purchasing.
Hunter Clayton, Executive Vice President of MGM Resorts Development said, "We will continue to offer these types of opportunities on individual components of the project as they become a priority. That will allow us to set specific terms and expectations and make best use of everyone's time. We look forward to meeting potential project partners."
The construction of MGM Springfield will offer opportunities in a wide range of property components, such as early work and offsite work for the garage, casino, hotel tower, and retail plaza. Each component will allow for various bid opportunities for local contractors, in both prime and sub roles.
The upcoming information appointments will take place at the MGM Springfield Community Office located at 1441 Main Street. Contractors must schedule an appointment ahead of time to avail a 30-minute slot. Walk-in appointments are discouraged. Site fencing contractor appointments will be scheduled on Friday, Feb. 6 and the demolition/abatement contractor appointments on Monday, Feb. 9.
Please call the MGM Springfield Community Office at 413-735-3000 to make an appointment or for additional information regarding these opportunities.
