Convention Center has construction company

Wilmington City Council voted last night and the convention center now has a construction company heading the project. John Thompson of JM Thompson Construction had to answer some pointed questions about delays and cost overruns on the New Hanover County Jail project. Afterward the Council voted unanimously to give his company the job. JM Thompson was the low bidder at $28.5 million. Another company is driving pilings and doing site prep now. The convention center is targeted for completion by late 2009.
