An Olympic Milestone

The 1996 Centennial Olympic Games


MHR International's involvement in managing the design and construction of venues for the 1996 Olympic Games in Atlanta was among the company's earliest major achievements.


MHR International's exemplary work on the Olympics established the young company's reputation as one of the top construction and project management firms in the Southeast.

In a joint venture project with Lehrer McGovern (New York), McDevitt Street Bovis Inc. (Charlotte, NC), and Charles F. McAfee & Associates (Atlanta), MHR International provided program management services for design and construction work on a wide range of Olympic venues. The Olympic program, valued at $500 million, involved new construction and renovation of 28 Olympic competition venues. As part of the management team, MHR International oversaw the awarding and monitoring of 42% of the architectural and engineering contracts awarded to minority and women owned firms, and 35% of the construction contracts awarded to firms owned by minorities and/or women. These projects included supervision of the 6,000-seat basketball arena at Morehouse College, the 5,000- seat field hockey stadium at Clark Atlanta University, and the Stone Mountain cycling/archery venue. MHR International's other significant achievements included helping to manage the work at the Georgia Tech Aquatic Center and the $209 million Olympic Stadium at Turner Field. MHR International was additionally involved in managing the design and construction of the Stone Mountain Tennis Center and the 15,000-seat football stadium at Morris Brown College.
