Search for Vikings Stadium Builder Down to 2 Firms

Minnesota Vikings

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – The Minneapolis company that built new stadiums for the Minnesota Twins and the University of Minnesota football team is among two finalists to build the Minnesota Vikings’ new stadium.

Mortenson Construction made the cut this week, along with Hunt Construction of Scottsdale, Ariz.

Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority chairwoman Michele Kelm-Helgen says a third firm, Swedish-based Skanska AB, is no longer being considered.

A builder for the Vikings’ $975 million stadium was expected to be announced at Friday’s authority meeting. But Kelm-Helgen tells the Star Tribune (http://bit.ly/XXA6Iz ) more time is needed.

Mortenson has built several stadiums in the Twin Cities, including Target Field, TCF Bank Stadium, Xcel Energy Center and Target Center.

Hunt Construction has built a dozen NFL stadiums, including the homes of the Indianapolis Colts and Arizona Cardinals.
