AECOM to Provide Owner’s Representative Services for the Orange County Convention Center North-South Building Improvements
5/23/2019
AECOM, a premier, fully integrated global infrastructure firm, has been contracted by the Orange County Convention Center (OCCC) in Orlando, Florida, to provide owner’s representative services for the OCCC’s North-South Building Improvements. AECOM began supporting the program earlier this year.

The $605 million program involves approximately 856,000 square feet of building improvements, including a conceptual design of a 200,000-square-foot, column-free Multipurpose Venue that can accommodate up to 20,000 attendees. The proposed improvements also include the Grand Concourse along the side of Convention Way road with 60,000 feet of meeting rooms, an 80,000-square-foot ballroom and an entrance to the North-South Building.

AECOM previously served as OCCC’s owner’s representative during construction of the original 2.8million-square-foot North-South Building, which was completed in 2003. The company will again provide design, project and construction managers, project controls professionals and subject matter experts to support the design and construction oversight of the new improvements.

“The OCCC is one of the nation’s top tradeshow and convention destinations,” said Srini Kris, AECOM’s Program Management/Construction Management business line executive. “We are honored to have worked with the OCCC to deliver the original North-South Building and are honored to work with them again on the upcoming improvements.”

“We are thrilled to once again collaborate with the AECOM team, especially on a project that will create significant improvements and capacity for our convention center’s capabilities and event offerings,” said Jessie Allen, the OCCC’s Interim Executive Director. “AECOM’s institutional knowledge of the OCCC will be advantageous in planning and executing this program.”
