Denny Sanford PREMIER Center To Host Public

Denny Sanford PREMIER Center To Host Public

The Denny Sanford PREMIER Center continues to come together.

The ice floor pour is a thing of the past. Crews are putting plywood over the surface and once in place, the cover should shield the slab from any potential damage. Now it's on to the next task.

"One of the things you'll be seeing here over the next few weeks, we're going to start the center-hung scoreboard. Actually this week, what you're seeing going on is the LED light fixtures and sports lighting. They're actually being installed as we speak," Jason Miranowski of Mortenson Construction said.

According Miranowski, the Denny Sanford PREMIER Center will be one of the first new arenas to have LED sports lighting installed during the initial construction.

Now that the floor is in place, things are really starting to take shape. Seats have been installed in the suites and more are coming for the upper bowl.

"This week we actually started installing the seats in the suites. Next week we'll actually start installing the upper bowl seating. It's well underway and we're very excited to see those seats going in. It's another major milestone to hit," Miranowski said.

If you'd like to see first hand some of those milestones taking place, a viewing area has been set up inside for the public. Anybody can get a sneak peek on Saturday nights and Sunday afternoons starting this weekend.

"SMG, the operator, will actually be orchestrating that, but there's a time that the public can come out and actually view the facility and see what you're seeing behind me here and they're going to be very pleased. I think you're going to see a lot of surprises as it relates to the largeness and the complexity of the facility. It's a facility to be proud of," Miranowski said.

The viewing area will be open to the public Saturdays from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. and Sundays from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. through March 30. There is no need to RSVP. You are asked to enter near meeting room 14 in the Convention Center.

KELOLAND TV set up a camera to record the concrete pour in January.  Watch that time lapse below.
