Phoenix Convention Center | Phoenix, Arizona

The Project

Expansion of a 1,500,000 square foot four level convention center with exhibit areas, meeting rooms, ballroom, catering kitchen, food court and support amenities. Pfocus engaged after construction documents were 50% complete and city staff, architects, engineers and contractors were in place.


Our Accomplishments
  • Provided quick start project team leadership and day to day management to ensure the integrity of the project in terms of aesthetics, function, quality, budget and schedule.
  • Promoted a comprehensive and aggressive construction schedule to meet opening event date and booked convention deadlines.
  • Packaged the project to meet budget goals which resulted in $7 million construction contingency funds returned to the owner, despite escalating cost of materials and an over-heated construction market.

"We needed a person to lead our effort in stage 2 of our project. Rick is a very experienced, knowledgeable and organized project manager. He works well with everyone and motivates the team. Just as important in his role as an owner's representative, he is highly respected by the architects, engineers and contractors on the project."
