Go Forward Pine Bluff, on behalf of the Generator, will host a meet and greet for contractors and subcontractors from 5:30-7:30 p.m. Thursday, March 21, at Jefferson Regional Medical Center.

The event will be held at the Henslee Conference Center, rooms J and R, according to a news release from Go Forward Pine Bluff.

CDI Contractors LLC has been chosen as the general contractor to renovate and expand JRMC. CDI, in partnership with the Pine Bluff Construction & Trade Alliance and The Generator, invites firms to attend the meeting, according to the release.

The Generator is an arm of GFPB designed to bring area residents together for work on construction projects, such as the new casino that will be built later this year. That project, along with the JRMC construction, the new Pine Bluff/Jefferson County Library facility in downtown Pine Bluff and the aquatics center, has created a local construction boom as of late.
