Irving Convention Center Construction Moving Forward

Text size: A A

The $133-million Irving Convention Center at Las Colinas is scheduled to open later this year. The long-span and cantilever steel structure was designed by New York-based RMJM Hillier Architecture with Dallas-based Datum Engineering as the structural engineer and Austin Commercial of Dallas as the general contractor. The center is made of structural steel trusses, girders and columns with lightweight composite concrete floor slabs. It uses traditional steel framing and castellated beams.

The 275,000-sq-ft venue is the first phase of a mixed-use entertainment district on 40 acres. Phase two includes a 6,000-person capacity venue, dining, shopping and an adjacent, privately developed hotel.
