WCN Editorial Team 29 Jul 2016 NORTH AMERICA BUILDINGS

American football team Minnesota Vikings has selected the development team for its new Eagan practice facility and headquarters in Minnesota, US.

The team includes Crawford Architects, which will provide design services, and Kraus-Anderson Construction Company, which will act as the construction manager of the project.

The new team headquarters will feature outdoor and indoor practice fields, a 6,000-seat stadium, team meeting rooms and auditorium, a broadcast studio and media centre, and administrative offices for staff.

The facility represents the first phase in an overall 200-acre planned development, which is expected to include offices, retail, residential and hospitality units and a conference centre.

Vikings’ executive vice president and CFO Steve Poppen said: “We are thrilled to once again engage in a large project with a Minnesota-based construction company such as Kraus-Anderson, as they have a tremendous body of work and strong reputation within the community.

“Both Crawford Architects and Kraus-Anderson have long-standing relationships with the Vikings and together give us complete confidence in designing and building this project on time for a March 2018 opening.”

The project is scheduled to break ground in early August 2016. Construction work on the first phase is expected to be completed in about 20 months.
