Denny Sanford PREMIER Center Coming Together Quickly

Denny Sanford PREMIER Center Coming Together Quickly

Walking into the Denny Sanford PREMIER Center from one day to the next will give you something new to look at each time. Crews are working fast to bring the public a new venue for entertainment.

"One of the things we started with from the very beginning, we wanted a building that was not only fitting for Sioux Falls, not only fitting for the State of South Dakota, but truly the region," Public Works Director Mark Cotter said.

That's why the city has brought in businesses from all over the Midwest to help tie everything together. It will have the look of a high-class facility, but it will be something suitable for everyone.

"What we tried to do on this building is create a lot of amenity areas and a lot of services for the people, so everything from the lowest price seat to the highest price seat would have great services.  That was the goal," architect Donald Dethlefs said.

Not only will there be plenty of services, but a major effort is also being put into making all parts of the Denny Sanford PREMIER Center easier to access.

"We put a lot of thought and a lot of drawings to creating a really state-of-the-art building with people with disabilities, not only wheelchairs but sight impairments, hearing impairments," Dethlefs said.

It is all about the details at the Denny Sanford PREMIER Center, making this facility one of the state-of-the-art buildings in the entire region.  Details such as no separation between the suites, as well as carpet and ceiling materials that won't quickly go out of style.

"These buildings last a long, long, long time and we want this to be a really high-quality facility for the whole community," Dethlefs said.

While there is no exact date set yet, the Denny Sanford PREMIER Center will be ready in the fall.
