Skanska has been selected to lead the $38 million renovation and expansion project of the Tampa Convention Center. The firm will work closely with Baker Barrios Architects in the design-build project that will be completed in two phases.

Updates to several building infrastructure components, the installation of the newest available convention venue technologies, and the incorporation of several sustainability initiatives will all be included as part of the project.

Phase One will consist of the renovation of existing meeting rooms and upgrades to facility elevators. Phase Two will see the demolition of existing pre-cast structures at the Riverwalk facade. Phase two will also include the construction of 18,000 sf of new meeting room space with waterfront views, the modernization of existing meeting room and ballroom areas, and the completion of extensive HVAC upgrades.

The project is slated for completion in July of 2023.
