The Partnership Board, on behalf of the New Juneau Arts and Culture Center (New JACC) project, is pleased to announce the selection of a contractor to begin a Construction Manager/General Contractor (CM/GC) approach to the development of the building.  Cornerstone Construction, an Alaskan firm based in Anchorage, will join NorthWind Architects and the Design/Construction Committee of the Board to begin the Design Development phase of the project.
