Little Caesars Arena Construction Management Team Earns Top Honors

The innovative and successful construction management team for Little Caesars Arena has won top honors from the nation’s leading construction industry association.

The Washington D.C.-based Association of General Contractors awarded Barton Malow/Hunt-White with the 2018 Construction Risk Partners Build America Award for Best New Construction Management Project for management of the innovative sports and entertainment venue during an AGC annual convention event in New Orleans on Feb. 27. The award acknowledges the team’s successful management of the most challenging and complex construction projects of the year, using skill, technology and collaboration.

 “The Construction Risk Partners Build America Awards recipients represent the perfect integration of creative design, construction mastery and flawless execution which is inspiring to us all”, said Rob Rapp of Construction Risk Partners. “CRP and JLT would like to congratulate all of the award winners and nominees for their amazing ingenuity, perseverance and accomplishment on their respective projects.”

The Michigan-Made, Detroit-Built venue—home to the Detroit Red Wings and Detroit Pistons and the anchor of The District Detroit—opened in September 2017. State-of-the-art amenities for the arena’s 20,000-seat bowl include a jewel skin projection screen, best-in-class acoustics, dynamic LED lighting and the largest seamless centerhung scoreboard in the NHL.

The Barton Malow/Hunt-White team this year also won the AGC’s “Construction Management – New” category and earned the top award for the association’s Michigan chapter.
