$1.2B Austin Convention Center Redevelopment Project Awarded to Turner/JE Dunn Joint Venture

AUSTIN, TX — A joint venture team of Turner Construction Company and JE Dunn Construction was awarded a contract to lead a $1.2 billion redevelopment and expansion of the Austin Convention Center in Texas.

The project will involve demolishing and rebuilding the Convention Center over four years. The expansion and redevelopment will nearly double the amount of rentable space, allowing the Convention Center to remain competitive in the marketplace. The redevelopment will also deliver a community-friendly event space that will transform the southeast quadrant of downtown and provide connectivity between downtown and East Austin.

“It is an honor for the JE Dunn and Turner Construction Joint Venture to be chosen for such a significant undertaking for the city of Austin,” said Graham Dewar, Vice President and General Manager, Turner Construction Company. “This project will revitalize the Austin Convention Center, improving the experience for clients and guests alike, while improving the connectivity of downtown Austin. We look forward to working with all our partners and the community on the construction of this new Convention Center.”

Construction will be complete in 2028.
