    Fabricator and Erector Presentations on the Vikings Stadium project
    Westin Minneapolis

    US Bank Stadium, home of the MN Vikings, due to an accelerated schedule was bid based on preliminary drawings that were to be finalized by the design team with design assist from the construction team.  The design assist process involved value engineering with the goals of reducing project cost, improving constructability and reducing schedule.   The design and construction teams worked to reduce field labor by simplifying construction and by shifting labor hours from the field to the shop.   The talk illustrates some of the major changes and the coordination required.
