City of Texarkana, Texas officials and D Hospitality, LLC held a briefing on June 16, 2010 for
interested design/build firms for the Texarkana Convention Center and Hilton Garden Inn
project. Fourteen firms from throughout the region received the Statement of Qualifications
(SOQ) packet and had an opportunity to have their questions regarding the selection process
answered and tour the site on Cowhorn Creek Road.
Mike Daugherty of D Hospitality commented, “We’re excited to be taking this next step and
encouraged by the high level of interest in our project. We’ll work with the City to select the
firm that we believe will deliver a premier quality product in the most cost‐effective manner.”
The completed SOQ packets are due back to General Services Director Jim Powell by 2:00 p.m.
on June 30, 2010. “We expect the selection process to take approximately 45 days,” added Jack
Daugherty. “Choosing the right firm to design and build the convention center and hotel is a
crucial step in the process.”
