The Vikings are Coming!
The new Twin Cities Orthopedics Performance Center set to open in March 2018 is beginning to take shape above ground.
Kraus-Anderson Construction began erecting structural steel last week and expects to celebrate the topping off of the headquarters building in February 2017. Steel erection on the indoor practice facility will follow and is scheduled to be complete at the end of March 2017. More than 19,700 labor hours are anticipated to complete the steel construction of the new buildings alone.
Since the August 2 groundbreaking, work has been moving forward on the site, with 10 Minnesota companies already spending time on the project. Several hundred thousand cubic yards of soil have been moved to balance the site and accommodate the realignment of Vikings Parkway, a new city street servicing the entire development. Retaining walls have been installed, and footings and foundations have been set. In addition, thousands of feet of underground utilities have been installed and the old Northwest Airlines simulator building has been demolished and removed from the site. More than 11,800 labor hours have been generated from work to date on the project. Click here to read more.
