Tampa, Florida -- There's still confetti on the floors and cardboard signs supporting Mitt Romney inside the Tampa Bay Times Forum.
But construction crews can't afford to leave those things there for long.
A multi-million dollar makeover to the building came with the Republican National Convention.
Now, the challenge is putting the arena back together in time for the next event in about two weeks.
"They took a couple of months to put it together. It will take about three weeks to take it apart and put back into place," said Steve Griggs, COO of the Forum.
The stage is mostly gone and the convention floor is back to concrete.
Building supervisors say getting the skyboxes back to their original form may present the biggest challenge.
"They took down all the railings and the seats that were in there. The fridges, all of those things were actually taken out and they all have to be put back in," Griggs said.
As part of the agreement with Tampa, RNC organizers are committed to paying for all the renovations.
The first event is scheduled for Sept. 21, with the Lightning hosting a preseason game a few days later.
The team still plans to unveil a new $5 million scoreboard then.
