Lakers, Kings, Clippers Pay Tribute to 1200 STAPLES Center Construction Workers at an Early July 4th Barbecue on Construction Site

Jul 2, 1999

Jerry West, Dave Taylor, STAPLES Center President Tim Leiweke and Sr. Vice President Kevin Murphy will be on-hand to meet, greet and congratulate over 1200 construction workers building STAPLES Center.

As a sign of their appreciation for the outstanding and on-time construction of STAPLES Center, representatives of the future tenants (Los Angeles Lakers, Kings, Clippers & Avengers) and owners will host a pre-Fourth of July program and barbecue for over 1200 construction workers in the arena's actual lower seating area.

With less than 13 weeks until the arena's certificate of occupancy is expected and, 15 weeks before Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band perform at STAPLES Center's grand opening, the owners of STAPLES Center and representative of PCL Construction wish to pay tribute to the crew that continues to maintain an on-time and on-target schedule while achieving the highest level of professionalism and quality of work.
