TCO Performance Center Continues to Reach Construction Milestones

Construction on the Twin Cities Orthopedics Performance Center continues at a rapid pace with the facility now over 75% complete. The headquarters and indoor practice facility are both 99% enclosed as work continues on both. 

Work is currently being done inside the Vikings locker room and training room. Both are being dry-walled, taped, sanded and painted with ceramic tile. Extensive plumbing, mechanical and electrical rough-in is in progress.

The indoor practice facility has all base metal panels and overlays installed. Exterior signage and graphics continue to be installed. The turf practice field for the 93,000-square foot indoor practice facility is set to be installed in mid-January.

There are currently 40 subcontractors, including 36 Minnesota-based companies, working on the project under the leadership of Kraus-Anderson. To date, more than 325,000 work hours have gone into the project with no lost time accidents. There is an average union workforce of 250 tradespersons onsite daily. All Targeted Business and Workforce goals are being met or exceeded.
