QWEST CENTER, OMAHA, NE
City of Omaha turns to GSI for Midwest's Premier Meeting and Entertainment Venue
GSI provided geotechnical engineering and construction materials testing for the Qwest Center in Omaha as the owners representative.
The Qwest Center Site Spans 100 City Blocks, 422 acres in Omaha's Downtown Hub
The Qwest Center encompasses 32,700 sq ft of exhibit space, a 450-room anchor hotel with skywalk, an arena that seats 17,000 fans, parking lots and high rise parking facilities to meet the demand of local and national events held at the center. And is still, the premier meeting and entertainment venue in the Midwest.
Tight Schedules, Relentless Effort
The Qwest Center design/build project demanded tight schedules and a relentless effort to keep communication lines open and active. GSI met the challenge by using full-time field technicians and engineeers who coordinated activities with several contractors, and the Union Pacific Railroad, civil design engineers and facility architect.
