ORLANDO MAGIC/FERNANDO MEDINA
July 14, 2009
This image shows the first segment of the Orlando Events Center's new roof being put in place on Tuesday, July 14, 2009. This segment is the first of six, 380-foot-long, 150-ton steel roof trusses for the arena being put in place over the next five months.
This is a local success story, said Schuff President and Chief Executive Officer Glen Davis, whose company is fabricating the trusses. "The local construction community needed this project quite badly as did Schuff Steel. We are proud of the Orlando Magic and the City of Orlando for recognizing those needs and for living up to the commitments that they made to keep as much of the work local."
