Basnight Construction was awarded subcontracted work on part of the new $25 million Jennette’s Pier project currently under construction in Nags Head. The amount of money the construction company is obtaining is undisclosed.
President Pro Tempore Marc Basnight (D-Dare) was a huge behind-the-scenes advocate who pushed to build the multimillion dollar project. Due to his efforts, House Bill 628, “Aquarium Satellite Areas Funding” was able to fly through the Legislature in April 2009 and receive unanimous approval from lawmakers.
President of Basnight Construction for the last two decades, the Senator’s history with the company began in 1973 when he founded it. He serves as an active board member and is now registered with North Carolina State Department as the company’s treasurer, while his cousin, James Basnight, is registered as president.
