Description: 

The crews in St. Paul are making progress on the new stadium for the Minnesota United FC, an MLS soccer team. The new Allianz Field is scheduled to be complete in the spring of 2019. You can already get a glimpse of what’s to come as Mortensen Construction has set up a webcam that’s live 24/7, so check back to see the progress.

Allianz Field is located in the St. Paul Midway, the 346,000 square foot, $200 million, privately funded facility will offer seating for nearly 20,000 fans, including 25 suites, 38 semi-private loge boxes, and four club rooms. The stadium design includes features specifically for Major League Soccer, like a natural grass field. The stadium will also include a safe-standing section for Minnesota United’s supporters groups, behind the south goal to cheer on Minnesota United. As well as a very large canopy for weather protection for the fans and to help keep the noise from the crowd contained within the stadium.

“This stadium is being built for the long-term. It is a very highly energy-efficient stadium,” Greg Huber with Mortenson Construction said.

Rainwater will be collected at a nearby park and then used to water the grass. Instead of using storm water as a waste product, it will be used as a resource to irrigate the site all around.

Wells Concrete is manufacturing and erecting nearly 25,000 sq. ft. of precast concrete for this project, including stadia and stairs as well as 140’ wall panels and solid slabs.

Product # Sq. Ft. / Ln. Ft.
Stadia 469 16,120 Ln. Ft.
Stairs 10
Wall Panels 54 6352 Sq, Ft,
Solid Slab 11 2116 Sq. Ft
