Cedar Rapids Convention Complex - Commercial

The Cedar Rapids Convention Complex is a state-of-the-art multi-use facility consisting of a new convention center and completely renovated U.S. Cellular Center Arena.  Located in the heart of downtown Cedar Rapids, the facility is the cornerstone of the downtown revitalization movement and the crown jewel of Cedar Rapids.  It is the second largest convention and events complex in the state, with over 470,000 square feet of space.  Paulson Electric, as the prime electrical contractor for this complex project, controlled the complete electrical construction.  In addition to working tirelessly with a diverse project team to complete the facility on time, Paulson Electric also worked closely with the City of Cedar Rapids to provide value alternates that helped the owner meet its budget constraints and construct a facility that exceeded expectations for quality.
