Boston Convention and Exhibition Center
Upon completion in 2004, the state-of-the-art Boston Convention & Exhibition Center (BCEC) was New England’s largest convention center, and the largest building in New England, meeting escalating demand for a facility to accommodate large-scale events. The BCEC is a 1.7 million square-foot convention facility including a 515,000 square-foot exhibit hall, 165,000 square feet of meeting rooms, and a 41,000 square-foot ballroom. It is three times the size of Boston’s existing John F. Hynes Veterans Memorial Convention Center, giving it the ability to accommodate groups too large for the existing facility.
During the preconstruction phase, Clark provided multiple budget estimates at various stages of design in addition to preparing and purchasing trade bid packages. In addition, Clark provided cost savings ideas and proposed building systems review for cost, function, availability, and constructability.
