ORLANDO -- The Orlando Magic continues its commitment to Minority and Women-Owned Business Enterprises (MWBE) with the team awarding $17 million of design and construction contracts for the AdventHealth Training Center in Parramore to 33 local MWBEs. That amount represents approximately 32 percent of awarded opportunities, which is over the city's recommended 24 percent MWBE participation.
The firms awarded contracts include Mack Contracting, C.T. Windows, TJNG Partners, SGM Engineering Inc., TLP Engineering, Consultants, JK2 Scenic, Southeastern Surfaces and Equipment, Percopo Coatings Company, and MMR Constructors, Inc. (which uses MWBE sub-subcontractors).
"Our hope is that this facility is even more than a world-class training center and becomes a true ‘win-win’ for the community and the team,” Magic Chairman Dan DeVos said. “We’re dedicated to two things – building a championship organization for the long-term and being an accountable and invested community partner with local residents. Health and wellness are so important to all of us and we’re eager to see this center contribute to meaningful outcomes on and off the court.”
Those working specifically on the AdventHealth Training Center have been on the site since the fall when construction first began.
One of the firms involved in the construction of the Magic’s downtown AdventHealth Training Center is Mack Contracting, which is in charge of underground utility, earthwork, excavation, and paving at the site. Having already worked on projects before with Balfour Beatty, the training facility’s construction manager, and impressed with all of their prior developments, Mack Contracting President Lawrence Mack-Harrell was elated to sign his company up for this venture.
