U.S. Bank Stadium Sustainability a Major Success

Today marks Earth Day, but the conservation efforts at U.S. Bank Stadium have become an all-year task. Since the beginning, achieving LEED (Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design) certification has been the goal.

To begin, the roof's purpose is to shed snow into a giant snow gutter near the roof line that features a heating system to direct the melted snow through the stadium's storm water control system. This system, which utilizes one central ridge truss, lessens the carbon footprint of the building by reducing the needed structural steel by an estimated 2,000 tons.

Going along with the snow being shed, the water and energy conservation throughout the stadium are major steps in the stadium achieving the goal. For more on the stadium's sustainability, click here.

U.S. Bank Stadium Looking to Hire 2,500 Part-Time Employees

Over 2,500 part-time employees will serve as the face of U.S. Bank Stadium's hospitality when the building opens later this summer. The process to hire those employees begins with next week's U.S. Bank Stadium hiring fair.

Interested applicants will have the opportunity to interview for jobs next week at the Minneapolis Convention Center. The hiring fair will be held April 26-April 28 in the Level One meeting rooms. The fair will take place from 9:00 am to 8:00 pm each of the three days.

Local Highway Signs Will Now Reflect U.S. Bank Stadium Name

If you've driven on a highway near downtown Minneapolis over the past two years, you've likely noticed a sign for the now-demolished Metrodome. That will soon change in the coming weeks.

Over the next two months, the freeway signs directing fans towards the downtown stadium will be replaced with those bearing the name of the new building. Five brown signs with white letters will be in place prior to the stadium's opening in late July.

Due to the condition the old signs will be in upon removal, fans will not have the opportunity to purchase them.
