KCM Group will manage the museum’s design, permitting and construction.
“The cultural and economic significance of Comic-Con for our city cannot be understated,” KCM Group president Gordon Kovtun said. “We are honored to help build a museum and experience center in San Diego that will capture the magic of Comic-Con 365 days a year.”
The Comic-Con Center for Popular Culture will take over the three-story, 68,000-sq.-ft. former site of the San Diego Hall of Champions.
“The museum is still in its early stages but we wanted to recruit a specialist project manager as soon as possible,” Comic-Con Museum executive director Adam Smith said.
KCM Group will assist with program development, budgeting, construction-related scheduling and perform a review of the building as well as the surrounding area. The company will also help with communication between the museum, city and other stakeholders.
