Standing 95 feet tall at their peak, the five pivoting glass doors that open to the west plaza and downtown Minneapolis are certainly a signature piece of the new Vikings stadium. Recently the steel columns that will guide those doors were brought from their manufacturer - Merrill Iron & Steel – to be placed on the construction site. When fully erected, the columns will give fans an idea just how high the largest pivoting doors in the world will be.
Check out the below video and gallery that give fans a look at the process inside the walls of Merrill Iron & Steel, as well as the second gallery of interior stadium images, a recent P&J concrete pour (see video above) and other construction shots.
