Denny Sanford PREMIER Center Half Done



Bookmark and Share

The construction on the Denny Sanford PREMIER Center is at its halfway point. And on Wednesday, we were invited inside the events center to get a look at the progress.

From the outside, it’s clear that The Denny Sanford PREMIER Center is well underway. But on the inside, the true progress of the $117 million project is more visible.

“We wanted to give you a bird’s eye view today, on what the halfway point of a construction project like this one looks like,” said Director of Sioux Falls Public Works Mark Cotter.

The events center that is set to hold 13,000 fans is starting to come together. The cement for the floors have been laid, steel beams are in place, and even the suites are taking shape.

“On the next level, is the suite concourse, and you can see the stadia that's gone in,” said Cotter.

  What's next is getting the escalators out of their wrappings, so the floors can be connected.

 But Cotter said the biggest part of the project that has been finished so far is the 360 degree concourse.

“If your one side and you want to grab a slice of pizza from a particular vendor on the other side, you're going to be able to get out of your seat walk to the other side and come back,” said Cotter.
       
And with the project being right on budget city leaders say they are finding ways to add little details to make your experiences here even better.

“The most important thing for a fan is their seat,” Cotter said. “So we've actually taken the upgrade to get a sports suit seat to come in here for the lower bowl.”

And with the events center at its halfway point, Sioux Falls Mayor Mike Huether thanked everyone for their patience throughout the construction. But he also reminds everyone the process still has quite a long ways to go.
    
“We've come a long way Sioux Falls, stay patient,” Huether said.

City leaders said the next goal over the next six months is to get the roof up. The events center is set to open fall of 2014.
