Concrete Crews To Pour Floor At PREMIER Center

Concrete Crews To Pour Floor At PREMIER Center

There will be a lot of moving parts at the Denny Sanford PREMIER Center this weekend as crews take great care to pour the concrete for the ice floor.

The non-stop continuous pour will take place Saturday and will last about six hours.  It will take about 1.36 million pounds of concrete and 40 trucks to get the job done.

The concrete will cover miles of heating and cooling pipes that are used for the ice rink.

"A lot of months, a lot of experts into planning this pour out to exactly making sure that the tubing is in the right spot so it makes this ice like it's intended to," Brian Boe with Mortensen Construction said.

A flat and level floor is key to creating smooth ice, which is essential for hockey. No one will be allowed on the floor for 28 days.
