Construction on the Kovalchick Convention and Athletic Complex began February 16, and thanks to the diligence and hard work of those who wear hard hats, the region will celebrate completion in 2011, 850 days from when the dirt started flying.
Mascaro Construction Company, LP, of Pittsburgh, is the project’s general contractor; Farfield Company of Lititz will provide the mechanical and electrical construction; and S.P. McCarl, Inc. of Altoona will install the plumbing. L. Robert Kimball of Ebensburg is the professional architect.
Each contractor was selected in December after a competitive bid process. The project is being administered by the Pennsylvania Department of General Services. James P. Creedon is the secretary of General Services.
