GRAM Construction Team Selected
GRAND RAPIDS — The Grand Rapids Art Museum announced last week the construction team chosen to build its new home at Rosa Parks Circle.
The project will be a joint effort between local firm Rockford Construction Co., and Chicago-based Pepper Construction Co.
The Rise Group, also of Chicago, is serving as the owner’s representative.
Rockford has been responsible for several recent projects in the downtown area, most notably the expansive Cherry Street Landing development.
Pepper Construction brings experience from several museum projects, including the Davenport Museum of Art, The Figge Arts Center, the Art Institute of Chicago, and the Museum of Science and Industry.
Construction will begin on the site this month. The groundbreaking ceremony is scheduled for Sept. 8.
