U.S. Bank Stadium, Minneapolis, MN
CRAWFORD provided Independent Technical Review cost engineering services for the new $1 billion U.S. Bank Stadium which serves as the home of the Minnesota Vikings of the NFL. The new stadium is a fixed roof stadium with a translucent roof and features the five largest pivoting glass doors in the world. The stadium’s signature feature is five large doors that are between 75 and 95 feet tall and were incorporated to allow fresh air. With about 2,000 Wi-Fi beacons and 1,300 access points, U.S. Bank Stadium will have full Wi-Fi access throughout the building. The stadium will seat 66,200 people for most games, slightly more than the Metrodome. However, it will be expandable to 73,000 for special events such as the Super Bowl.
U.S. Military Academy Science Center, West Point, NY
CRAWFORD provided cost engineering, CPM scheduling, value engineering, and construction scheduling analysis for the $107 million state-of-the-art science center. Working with the USACE New York District CRAWFORD provided both PACES and MCACES MII cost estimates throughout the design phase. This extensive project is being completed in two phases. Phase II, currently under construction, includes the modernization and renovation of existing laboratory. Our RTA cost estimate was within 6% of the awarded construction contract which allowed USMA to secure all 22 bid options associated with the project.
