Lt. Governor Suzanne Crouch met with board members of the Wabash Valley Contractors Association (WVCA) to tour Terre Haute Children’s Museum exhibit, Under Construction, and visit the nearby Terre Haute Convention Center construction project. The Lt. Governor had the opportunity to speak with board members of the WVCA to highlight the impact of these major projects. According to the WVCA, half a billion dollars in construction investment is currently taking place in West Central Indiana.
“I’m excited to see the type of collaboration that West Central Indiana is exhibiting between local and state elected officials, construction industry and community leadership,” states Senator Jon Ford. “It is collaborative efforts that make these investments possible.
These projects represent growth and showcase the hard work of the Wabash Valley Contractors Association and the individuals continuing to move their communities forward.”
With so many upcoming construction projects in the Wabash Valley, WVCA took the opportunity to highlight the positive momentum surrounding their members and their projects. Current construction projects include the Terre Haute Convention Center, the Terre Haute Veterans Affairs clinic as well as higher education institutions, municipalities and private investment projects in the Wabash Valley.
“The Terre Haute Children’s Museum has a front row seat to the collaborative effort of the construction of the Terre Haute Convention Center,” states Susan Turner, the Terre Haute Children’s Museum Executive Director. “Our region is home to so many valuable trades that are a pivotal part in construction projects like the Terre Haute Convention Center. Our Under Construction Exhibit presents an amazing opportunity to teach and allow children to explore these trades and how to accomplish them all while having fun.”
The Under Construction Exhibit at the Terre Haute Children’s Museum has a 3rd story view of the construction of the Terre Haute Convention Center. As children watch the construction, they too can interact with the different trades that take part in construction projects including masonry building, playing with excavators and bulldozers, learning about electricity and so much more. This exhibit was made possible thanks to the WVCA sponsorship.
“On behalf of the Wabash Valley Contractors Association, I want to express my gratitude to Lt. Governor Suzanne Crouch for taking the time to visit and have conversations around the development of the construction projects happening here in the Wabash Valley,” states Bill Hann Jr., Board President of the Wabash Valley Contractors Association. “We are thankful for all of our WVCA members who make these projects possible. It’s an exciting time to be in West Central Indiana.”
The WVCA represents numerous contracts across West Central Indiana. These discussions promoted the development and showcased the museum and new construction investments throughout our region.
