This project consisted of the construction of the 665,000 square foot sports and entertainment arena. It features five levels equivalent to 12 stories tall, seats over 22,000, and has immediate access to the adjacent MetroLink station.

Trauner was retained by USF&G (now Travelers) to provide on-site management and inspection to complete the $165M Savvis Center project. Our services included the day-to-day management of 170-200 union tradesmen, the development and implementation of a resequencing plan that integrated with the existing project schedule, the planned acceleration of certain work activities, coordination of minority subcontractors, resolution of outstanding change order requests, negotiation of a settlement, review and determination of the status of completion at the time of the default, acquisition of the final permits and certificate of occupancy, and final close-out. The project was completed on time and the surety realized a significant cost savings.
