LiRo Engineers was chosen Monday by Erie Canal Harbor Development Corp. to provide construction management services for the Pavilion and Union Block buildings that are coming to Canalside.
LiRo's $775,000 contract includes a $232,000 contingency in the event LiRo's services need to be extended several months.
LiRo will represent the state agency through pre-construction, construction and post-construction phases, be responsible for day-to-day management of the construction process, and for delivering the project on time, within budget and of high quality.
Construction is expected to begin on the two interpretive structures in September. The two buildings are expected to be completed in 2019.
