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-percent complete. The headquarters and indoor practice facility are both 99 percent 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.

Miller Leads Kraus-Anderson Team Tasked With Building New Vikings Facility
While the Vikings are wrapping up their final months at Winter Park taking a week-by-week approach to the final stretch of their season, Mark Miller is spending time in Eagan forecasting how things will look for the organization in 2018.
Miller, a Senior Project Manager with Minneapolis-based Kraus-Anderson Construction, is leading the Twin Cities Orthopedics Performance Center project. Earlier this year, he had the opportunity to really gain the Vikings perspective on the new facility when WR stopped by for a visit.
With 33 years of experience under his belt, Miller appreciates the opportunity on working on a unique project like the Vikings future headquarters.
"Certainly to be able to work on this project with the Vikings, the most-recognized name and logo in Minnesota across the country, is really exciting," Miller said. "The last big job I worked on was at 3M, so I've had the great fortune of working on high-profile projects. I kind of like that."
Vikings wide receiver Stefon Diggs took a trip to Eagan as the final steel beam was installed and toured the future home of the Minnesota Vikings, the Twin Cities Orthopedics Performance Center.
