A contract has not been finalized yet, but the Oakland Raiders are reportedly close to announcing the selection of a general contractor for the new Las Vegas Raiders stadium. It is reported the Minneapolis-based Mortenson Construction will partner with McCarthy Building Cos. Inc.
“We’re working with a firm called Mortenson, and they have a local partnership with McCarthy,” Raiders President Marc Badain said. “Until the ink is dry on the contract, it’s sort of as if when you sign a player, we wait until they’ve actually signed it before announcing it. We’re working on finalizing that, but they’ve been our partner for awhile now, they’ve done a spectacular job for us and we’re very confident in them.”(more on the general contractor selection for the Las Vegas stadium...)
