Denny Sanford PREMIER Center Taking Shape

January 13, 2014, 6:34 AM by Don Jorgensen

Denny Sanford PREMIER Center Taking Shape

It’s been 17 months since the city first broke ground on the new Denny Sanford PREMIER Center and it’s really taking shape.

One of the milestones recently passed was the enclosure of the facility. 

"That is a significant milestone and just continues to reaffirm we are on schedule and under budget.  So with the enclosure, what that means is now we are inside a very warm building right now.  It's 70 degrees inside and they're able to do work without any of the weather elements, which is a huge deal for us, because now the focus is interior finishes with sheetrocking going up, first coat of paint going up and you really start to see what the building is going to look like," Sioux Falls Projects Manager Kendra Siemonsma said.

The events center will cost $117 million to build.  And the city says it expects the public will be impressed when construction is complete.

"I really hope that there's a sense of pride, because this building is a building like none we have in Sioux Falls, certainly not in the state of South Dakota.  So we are really excited to open the doors here in the fall of this year for a 12,000 capacity seating for basketball.  And I just think the size of the building itself will be an impressive thing that we really hope the citizens of Sioux Falls appreciates," Siemonsma said.

There are 39 restrooms in this facility, 22 suites, three clubs, four escalators and four elevators. 

Coming up later today on KELOLAND News, we're going to give you an exclusive tour of this new facility, plus details on a major announcement in a partnership with KELOLAND TV and the Denny Sanford PREMIER Center.
