RE: Request for Proposals
Architectural and Engineering Services for the New Minnesota Multipurpose Stadium

Dear Steve:

HNTB is a nationally recognized leader in the design of multi-use sports and entertainment venues and
we have the national resources required to design the New Minnesota Multipurpose Stadium. We have
the experience, vision, creativity and commitment to realize the potential of The People’s Stadium in
Minneapolis, Minnesota.

The Right Team
We have assembled a team of highly qualified and innovative stadium design experts who have
successfully worked together for more than 20 years on complex large-scale sports and entertainment
projects. Our team’s experience on premier facilities such as Sports Authority Field at Mile High Stadium
and the San Francisco 49ers Stadium is unique in the industry. At Sports Authority Field we delivered
the project ahead of schedule and under budget. For the 49ers we have accelerated the process to
open the stadium in 2014, a year ahead of schedule.

Knowledge
We actively update and maintain an extensive database on NFL and multi-use stadiums. Our approach
to benchmarking includes in-depth meetings with owners, operators, sales teams and managers to truly
understand what is working and where to improve. We are constantly taking that knowledge and
challenging each other to encourage innovation.

Approach
Our approach combines: Strong Urban Design, The Best Hospitality Experience, The Theater of the
Seating Bowl, Premium Areas, Integrated Sponsorship and Advertising, with the Next Generation of
Technology. Taken together these elements are woven into a single unified vision that will take The
People’s Stadium to a new level in the industry.

Because we are collaborators and innovators, we understand how to successfully work together with a
large diverse ownership group. You will find our team is unique in the way that we easily work with a
large team and find solutions that bring people together.


We will build on the benefits of our Team, Knowledge and Approach to develop the optimum People’s
Stadium and maximize the revenue potential of the facility and the brand. We look forward to
demonstrating these strengths and working with you to successfully complete this exciting project.

Thank you for including HNTB in your search for the right solution for the New Minnesota Multipurpose
Stadium.

We acknowledge the receipt of Addenda 1, 2, 3 and 4.

Sincerely,

dedicated solely to the planning, design and construction of sports facilities. Our work on more than 50 stadiums and
over 180 sports venues overall reflects our specialized sports experience and commitment to the successful delivery of

“ Our stadium will be an
economically and environmentally
sustainable showcase for
innovation in the Silicon Valley,
which consistently delivers to
an ever-growing community of
fans, partners and employees
the most elegantly satisfying
outdoor sports and entertainment
experiences in the world.”

Jed York, 49ers CEO
The San Francisco 49ers’ new 68,500-seat stadium is a flexible, expandable building that
can accommodate a wide range of events such as professional and college football, soccer,
motocross, concerts and civic events. HNTB’s design is “of the place”, taking advantage of the
unique setting and climate. The building has a simple structural expression on the exterior and
expansive open-air concourses with views of both the surrounding mountains and the seating
bowl. The facility will also be the first new LEED certified NFL stadium and will establish a new
standard for the integration of premium amenities.
During the early stages of the project, the 49ers shifted their original site location for the new
stadium from Candlestick Point in San Francisco to Santa Clara. The design team assisted the 49ers
in determining site adoption requirements including: access and egress issues to the site, relocation
of utilities, and maintaining the daily operations to the existing training facility and adjacent soccer
fields. This move from Candlestick Point also created opportunities for synergies between hotels,
convention centers, and existing parking garages.
Schedule
The stadium has an extremely aggressive schedule. The 49ers broke ground in April 2012. The
stadium superstructure will be topped out by Thanksgiving 2012, and construction will be
complete August 2014.

Fan Experience
The first level of the stadium features open pedestrian plazas, commercial community space, a team store, a Hall of
Fame and vibrant signage. The open-air concourses provide views of the game, pedestrian plazas, the surrounding Silicon
Valley and beyond. The hospitality-driven program elevates the fan experience to a new level. HNTB partnered with
Legends and Centerplate to provide high-speed, restaurant-quality food and beverage that will set a new standard for NFL
and professional sports. All kitchens and concession stands also feature display cooking capabilities, so fans can be part of
the experience.
Multi-Use Facility: Generating Revenue Year-Round
To increase revenue generation, HNTB designed nine different club spaces, each with different price points ranging from
main concourse clubs to rooftop clubs to very high-end owners clubs. Collaborating with the City of Santa Clara, the club
spaces will also provide an extension of program space for Santa Clara’s Convention Center - generating additional revenue
for both facilities. The new stadium also has 174 suites dispersed throughout, with different vantage points and amenities.
The main entry plaza, at the northwest corner of the stadium, will be open year-round, providing a unique event space.
Sustainable Features
Targeting LEED Gold certification, 49ers Stadium will be the first new NFL stadium to achieve this level of certification.
The stadium makes sustainability part of the fan experience with a green roof-top terrace that provides view of the field
and features photovoltaics that also act as a sunscreen. The stadium features convenient public transit access and bicycle
parking, walking path access from the San Tomas Creek Trail, water-conserving plumbing fixtures, sophisticated building
control systems and recycled materials.
Innovation and Technology
HNTB has future-proofed the stadium, providing the infrastructure to accommodate current and future technology.
Features include WiFi capability throughout, mobile connectivity, IPTV, and colossal HD video boards measuring over
13,000 square feet.

Tim Romani, Executive Director
of the Metropolitan Football
Stadium District
Sports Authority Field at Mile High
Denver, Colorado
HNTB was the lead Design Architect for this new design-build NFL football stadium. Situated
on a site adjacent to the Platte River Park extension, Sports Authority Field at Mile High is an
integrated urban NFL stadium and event center that serves as a civic anchor for downtown
Denver. The purpose of this multi-purpose event venue was to provide an entertainment
destination while creating a new civic icon for Denver. Complementing the surrounding
architecture and landscape, Sports Authority Field seats 76,125 for football and features 106
private suites, three stadium clubs, three commercial kitchens, a museum and a retail store.
Additionally, the stadium is host to over 300 non-football events each year.
The project, which was constructed within 45 feet of the existing stadium, was built to
completion while play was maintained in the adjoining Mile High Stadium. Working with the
design-builder, HNTB provided careful planning, effective communication and flexibility to
minimize the impact of the construction on the existing operations. The stadium is the revenue
generator required by the City and the team to enhance the Broncos as a viable franchise, and
the design of the building has given Denver and its citizens a new icon within its urban fabric.

Environment
Due to its proximity to the Rocky Mountains, the Denver area experiences extreme temperature swings of up to 70 degrees
within a 24-hour period. HNTB carefully considered thermal performance characteristics in design of the expansion joints
throughout the building. HNTB also designed roof structures, canopies and systems to address the support and drainage of
heavy snow loads.
Designing a Stadium Unique to Denver
HNTB designed a horseshoe-shaped stadium configuration with an upper and middle bowl that cantilevered over the suites
below, moving the seats as close to the playing field as possible. The design symbolically expressed the tectonic forces that
formed the mountains around Denver. The use of brick, glass, aluminum and steel, materials are reflective of Denver’s high
technology culture, vast natural resources and love of the outdoors. Steel was chosen as a primary material for the seating
bowl treads and risers to aid the fans’ ability to make “Rocky Mountain Thunder,” the intimidating rumble made by fans
stomping their feet.
Fan Experience
The stadium features 124 luxury suites ranging in size from a few hundred square feet up to 2,700 square feet. Suites
feature an expansive view window overlooking the inner bowl and side windows allowing for peripheral view of the
entire field. Seating is comprised of a “first row” of theatre-style folding seats with a second row of elevated seats for an
unobstructed view. The stadium also includes the Colorado Sports Hall of Fame, open year-round.
HNTB incorporated traditions from the original Mile High stadium. The Team Store offers the latest merchandise mixed with
a healthy dose of nostalgia. The store also has a 17-seat theatre to show highlights, complete with seating from the old
stadiums’ penthouse suites.
Fast-Track Schedule
The project was fast-tracked with multiple early demolition, foundations and steel packages to accelerate the schedule, and
delivered two weeks ahead of schedule and $4.5 million under budget.

HNTB’s work at the Florida Citrus Bowl began with the stadium’s $31.6 million, award-
winning 1990 expansion and renovation, which allowed the Citrus Bowl to remain highly
competitive in the sports marketplace with improved amenities. Improvements included two
new upper decks, along with concrete ramp towers. Additional upgrades included new press
facilities, guest boxes, space for 30 private suites, new field lighting, a new sound system and
new ticket booths.
In 2007, HNTB completed two separate studies for further expansion of the stadium. The
resulting $175 million program includes entirely new seating in the lower and mid-level seating
bowls, expansion of the upper deck to increase seating, addition of a stadium club, new suites,
a relocated press area, new landscaping/fencing, and creation of a new “front door” on Church
Street. Improvements to concessions and restrooms are included as well as new locker rooms.
HNTB is currently working with the City of Orlando on the $175M expansion/renovation -
construction on the stadium will commence in February of 2014. Our firm’s services for this

HNTB’s work began with a master plan for renovation of this historic stadium and surrounding
campus, and continued with design and current construction of the project. In order to preserve
the integrity of the historic west wall of the stadium, HNTB designed a modern, efficient bowl
that is being constructed wtihin the existing structure, replacing two-thirds of the original 1923
structure including the concourse, bowl seating, press box and other core structures. HNTB’s
design solution included lowering the field level by four feet to improve sight lines. A new press
box and club will float above the renovated stadium, juxtaposing new and old and providing a
celebratory space with dramatic views of the campus and the Bay Area. It is anticipated that the
club space will be a high-demand event space, allowing the University to generate revenue on
non-gamedays. The renovation also includes restoration of the historic façade, new concourses
with concessions, toilets and athletic training rooms, lockers and administrative offices,
accessibility.

HNTB provided complete design services to renovate and expand historic Michigan Stadium,
which is the third largest football stadium in the world. This project included the addition
of two 530’ long, multi-story structures on both the east and west sides of the stadium that
provide improved fan amenities, new restrooms and concessions, club seats, suites and press
facilities. Two new elevated concourses were also added on both sides of the stadium to
improve access and safety. Other improvements included widening existing aisles and seats,
and adding handrails and dedicated seating for fans with impaired mobility. Construction was
phased over three football seasons.
The project carries on the rich traditions and character of Michigan University football while
providing enhanced revenue opportunities to not only help fund the stadium expansion
project but to help fund the operations and improvements to other athletic programs and
facilities. Premium amenities were defined in the market analysis, but the flexible design
allowed adaptation as suites and club seats were being sold.
Opening day of the 2010 season greeted a record 113,090 fans to this newly renovated icon of
collegiate football.

Jack Trudeau, former Illinois

Memorial Stadium renovation at
the September 6 home opener
HNTB provided comprehensive master planning and design services for the renovation and
expansion of this stadium. The project includes new suites and premium seating, an indoor
club and a new press level. On-grade concourses were updated by providing new concessions,
restrooms, fan amenities and increased fan circulation.
Because the project was built within the building footprint, HNTB was able to
achieve the University’s desired seat count and dramatically increase the revenue opportunities.
The premium amenities are vertically and horizontally closer to the field than other institutions
in the BIG 10, which allowed the University to increase revenue and achieve the targeted
income goals.
HNTB developed a method of constructability that maintained the building’s historic elements
and expanded the building both vertically and horizontally toward the playing field. This
approach allowed for construction to occur year round, thus minimizing the project schedule
and bringing revenue sources on line sooner. Multiple bid packages also assisted in successfully
achieving the fast-track schedule in time for the opening of the 2008 football season. The
project was delivered on budget.

After preparing a master plan for stadium improvements, HNTB began the phased renovation
and expansion of the 35,000-seat Reser Stadium. Phase 1, which addressed the east half of the
stadium, was completed in 2005 and included the addition of 20,000 seats, 21 luxury suites,
club seating, site improvements, accessibility, life safety improvements, increased pedestrian
circulation and the addition of concessions and restrooms. A new stadium club, Founders
Loge (the first utilization of loge seating in collegiate sports), suites and concourse were also
provided. The improved amenities spurred a sellout of the new suites and loge boxes, providing
new revenue to the Athletic Department.
Completed in 2007, Phase 2 of the expansion added 2,000 seats in the south end zone, new
videoboard, ticket buildings, concessions, restrooms, and new entry plaza. The design of the
stadium towers and bridging elements were used to optimize circulation, leading to area and
cost reduction. During construction, the use of temporary bleachers and phased construction
allowed for uninterrupted operations and no loss of revenue.

Jane Meyer, Sr. Assoc. Director

The renovation and expansion of Kinnick Stadium had to be completed between two football
seasons to accommodate the University of Iowa football schedule and typically sold-out home
games with minimal disruption or loss of game-day revenues. Phase I included replacing the
south end zone bleachers with a new permanent 14,000-seat concrete bowl, and adding
new concessions and restrooms. Beneath the south end zone, team facilities were upgraded
with the addition of new home and visiting team locker rooms, media interview spaces
and a training room. Phase I also included the partial construction of a new press box that
maintained the existing press box in operation during the football season. During the off-
season, the existing pressbox was demolished, and the project’s second phase completed
construction of the new press box - a four-level structure that includes 49 hospitality suites,
1,100 outdoor club seats, 150 indoor club seats and enhanced media facilities. The east and
west concourses were also refurbished during this phase and included expanded concessions,
restrooms, novelty stands and support amenities. Both phases of the project were completed
on time and on budget without impacting the football schedule.

HNTB’s master plan examined improving site access and pedestrian circulation, expanding the
concourse, offering more concessions and restrooms, upgrading the entrance with a plaza and
new stadium graphics and improving life safety conditions. With HNTB leading the design team,
the University completed Phase I on budget and on time. Phase II included a new concourse
and the addition of 5,440 seats and 27 suites.
The Gate 6 project provided UGA with a new user friendly pedestrian entry plaza that, along
with the “hedges”, gave Sanford Stadium a new identity. The new suites, which were pre-sold,
provide increased revenue opportunities. Renovated and new restrooms, increased concourse
circulation and number of gates, and new seating locations have all increased fan amenities and
enhanced the game day experience.

After completing a comprehensive master plan, HNTB provided design services for the
renovation of Ross-Ade Stadium. The renovation added a stadium club, a new press box,
bench seating, suites, outdoor and indoor club seats, restrooms and concessions. Two
additional phases include a new 8,000-seat upper deck on the east side and a 9,500-seat
upper deck on the north.
New stadium clubs and suites were also provided. These new premium amenities quickly sold
out providing new revenue to the Athletic Department. The high demand for these amenities
and the new revenue is helping to fund additional teams and projects within Purdue athletics.

HNTB teamed with The Clark Enersen Partners to provide complete design services to expand
the University of Nebraska’s historic Memorial Stadium. The project expanded the East
Stadium and added 6,200 new spectator seats and improved fan amenities. The East Stadium
concourse was expanded through the addition of a new parallel concourse, which includes a
grand lobby that celebrates the original historic Gate 20 entrance and entire east façade with
minimal disturbance. The large 60-foot-tall volume of space that occurs before the seating levels
provides two levels of shell space on either side of the grand lobby, which are provided for UNL
Research and future Athletic Department use.
Additional seating occurs on four new upper floor levels - Balcony/Suite Level, Club Level, Suite
Level and Upper Bowl Level. The project improves fan amenities, game day access and safety.
Additional concessions and restrooms were provided on the expanded Main Concourse and
Upper Concourse Levels.

This new 27,500-seat stadium includes 900 club seats and the capacity for 1,500 fans on
the grass berm. As a first step, HNTB developed options to create a sustainable business
development plan for the stadium, which included a preliminary market, financial and
funding analysis outlining revenue sources to fund the stadium project. The stadium includes
a seven-story press box structure, scoreboard, multi-sport locker facility, and associated fan
and player amenities. Included in the press box structure are three floors of administration/
academic space for the university totaling 81,000 SF.
Revenue generation was a key priority for the University as HNTB contemplated this project.
Innovative “Party Decks” provide two-story outdoor spaces that are available for rent by
groups seeking an outdoor setting from which to watch games or host special events. The
south berm area has been coined “The Hill,” and is offered as student seating to those
attending football games. The three academic levels beneath the press tower in addition to
the open indoor club and press areas position the stadium as a year-round facility.

HNTB’s master plan made recommendations to the University on improvements to the
stadium that included the addition of suites, club seating, site improvements and increased
pedestrian circulation. Phase I opened in 2005 and involved a west sideline expansion, which
includes a new press level, club seats, an interior club and private suites.
The goal was to improve the stadium’s aesthetics and spectator amenities while increasing
potential revenue opportunities to support the Athletic Department’s many programs. In
addition to suites and clubs, the stadium has two floorplates that provide co-location for
recruiting and alumni activities. HNTB replaced the existing Press Facilities on the west side
of the stadium. Below the new Press Facilities a level of Suites, a new Photo Deck Level with
broadcast booths and limited seating and a new Upper Concourse with spectator amenities
were constructed. In place of the former Press Facilities a new Stadium Club with outdoor
seating was constructed, along with two levels of office space and a full service kitchen.

HNTB, in association with The Collaborative, Inc., designed this new $80 million arena to serve
as a catalyst for continued revitalization of Downtown Toledo. One of the first LEED Gold
certified arenas in the United States, the multi-purpose facility provides 8,000-9,000 seats
for events that include the Toledo Walleye hockey team games (a minor league team to the
National Hockey League), professional bull riding, the Harlem Globetrotters, arena football,
concerts and other entertainment events. The arena contains three levels: Event Level,
Concourse Level and Club/Suite Level.
The project design phases and construction document (CD) packages were organized in a non-
traditional manner to coordinate with the fast-track demands of the construction schedule.
Early civil and structural CD packages were scheduled to start and finish before the end of
the design development phase, thus presenting unique design and construction coordination
requirements. There were multiple CD packages ranging from the excavation and deep
foundation packages to the building shell, core and interiors packages.
With its physical connection to the SeaGate Convention Centre and proximity to Fifth Third
Field - another HNTB project - the Huntington Center is a new downtown entertainment
destination.

Located on the edge of downtown Los Angeles, the University of Southern California’s new
Galen Center houses the men’s and women’s basketball and volleyball teams and numerous
entertainment, academic and community events. Design goals were to extend the sense of
campus across Figueroa Street with this new “anchor” on the campus’ northeast corner and to
create a landmark visible from the adjacent 110 Freeway.
The 10,300-seat facility features 22 private suites, 2,200 Founder seats, a team store, Hall of
Fame and donor recognition areas. The adjoining practice pavilion provides four practice
areas with one and a half courts each, as well as conference rooms and offices for coaches
and administrators.
The event center has become a community resource and a linchpin in the ongoing revitalization
of downtown Los Angeles. Events held at the center, including concerts, lectures and theatrical
performances, are expected to bring more than $10 million in direct annual revenue to this
economically diverse community.

HNTB completed the design for the renovation of Mackey Complex and a new Student-Athlete
Development Center. The project includes a new weight room and sports medicine facility for all
sports, a practice basketball gymnasium, team locker rooms, meeting rooms, administrative and
coaches’ offices. The concourse was widened and concessions and restrooms were increased in
size. Club and loge seating was also provided.
The firm worked directly with the Purdue campus architect to ensure the campus design
guidelines were being both implemented and celebrated. HNTB worked in coordination with
a rigorous University review and approval process that included design and technical reviews
with Purdue Physical Facilities and Purdue Athletics at key milestones for multiple document
packages throughout the duration of the multiple-phase project.
The campus has a rich history of traditional building materials such as brick and stone. The
addition and renovation of Mackey Arena was able to evoke that history by the use of materials
consistent with the original Mackey Arena, while providing a functional addition with dynamic
spaces with a scale that complements the existing arena. The addition sits comfortably next to
the surrounding buildings and creates outdoor spaces that reflect the desire to provide a rich
and diverse campus pedestrian experience.

HNTB developed expansion options for RFK Stadium and design options for a new stadium,
which would accommodate both the NFL Washington Redskins and a new Major League
Baseball team. The study included adding 96 luxury suites, six party suites, renovating the
Stadium Club, improvements to the field, press facilities, team facilities, stadium services and
other areas. HNTB then completed the $18.5 million renovation of 1.3-million square feet at
RFK. Work included a new playing field, upgrades to sports lighting, renovation to locker rooms,
press box, dugouts and camera bays. Additional work included 12,000 SF of administrative office
space for the baseball team, 9,000 SF of open air club space, upgrades to the sound system,
broadcast cabling, emergency lighting and signage.
Renovation of RFK Stadium had two complex and interrelated challenges: design and build the
renovation to accommodate the concurrent seasons of Major League Baseball’s Washington
Nationals and DC United of Major League Soccer. HNTB facilitated the renovation through the
re-use of previously defunct moveable bleachers and the implementation of a unique hydraulic
pitcher’s mound that sinks to a level position for soccer, and raises to the appropriate height for
baseball.

HNTB provided comprehensive design services for the new 8,530-seat Reno AAA Ballpark, home
to the Reno Aces, the AAA affiliate of the MLB Arizona Diamondbacks. The ballpark is adjacent
to the Truckee River and serves as a terminus from the casinos to the north. The promenade to
the ballpark includes an integrated retail and entertainment district as part of the master plan.
The design team achieved the client’s goal of creating an urban ballpark that creates a center
of entertainment for the people of the Reno/Tahoe region and that took advantage of all the
synergies with both downtown Reno and the Truckee River. The ballpark is designed and built to
host events such as concerts, festivals and other family-oriented entertainment.

Fifth Third Field is the home of the Toledo Mud Hens, the Class AAA International League
affiliate of the MLB Detroit Tigers. The 10,000-seat stadium features 32 luxury suites and
a unique, elevated seating area, “Muddy’s Roost” above the right field corner. Newsweek
magazine recognized Fifth Third Field as the Best Stadium in Minor-League Baseball,
acknowledging the ‘roostseats’ over-hanging the field and a major-league-quality video board.
The stadium is extremely functional yet traditional. Utilizing existing warehouse buildings as a
backdrop, “The Roost,” is a unique seating area extending over the right field wall that has been
very popular with fans. Durable, low-maintenance materials integrate well with the downtown
cityscape. The central location and inviting design of the field have helped make Toledo a leader
in the current revival of minor league baseball.

HNTB’s design approach for the New Minnesota Multipurpose Stadium will be a community-based collaboration focused
on innovation and execution. Our approach is based on:
• Contextual design that is “of its place”
• A building skin that pays homage to the Nordic heritage of the community.
• Multi-faceted building efficiencies that improve aesthetics and schedule
• An openness that reflects both the outdoor nature and the personality of Minnesota’s citizens.
5. Provide a Preliminary Design Package for the Stadium and Stadium Infrastructure, based on
the Preliminary Program atached hereto as Exhibit A and the Preliminary Site Plan atached
hereto as Exhibit B. The Preliminary Design Package should include the following drawings:
• Basic site plan showing orientaton of the Stadium and Stadium Infrastructure on the Site
and proposed entrance points for patrons, employees, service trafc, VIP parking, etc.
• Preliminary foor plans showing general arrangement of each foor’s area by usage.
• Sectons indicatng the Stadium’s relatve height by level and overall building envelope,
including an operable roof or other operable element to allow for open air events to
be held at the Stadium. Optmize seatng capacity in lower terrace. Also, optmize suite
distributon to minimize distance to feld and overall venue height.
• Preliminary elevatons showing materials and general feel for building exterior.
The purpose of this secton of the submital is for your frm to demonstrate creatvity and
understanding of the Project, as this RFP is not intended to be a design competton.
73
Creatvity and Understanding of the Project
HNTB’s approach is summarized by the following four concepts.
1. Contextual Design
As designers, we continually search for ideas that make each project unique - solutions that reflect the culture, the
people and the exact place in which the facility will be built.
Civic Responsibility - Multipurpose stadiums are huge civic gestures. These buildings have the ability - and the responsi-
bility - to capture the essence of a community, its heritage, its citizenry and its teams.
Of Its Place - The New Minnesota Multipurpose Stadium will be “of its place” - evoking a re-energized civic pride in its
patrons. We envision the Stadium as a direct interpretation of the region’s history, reflective of a Nordic culture, a hearty
people who love the outdoors and live by values passed down from generation to generation.
Celebrate Minnesota - How do we combine these values with the Stadium’s functionality, efficiency of form and sustain-
able design? One approach is to celebrate these values through materials and forms that are meaningful - wood, stone,
color, greenery and land form that ground the design to Minnesota.
2. The Building Skin
We designed both from the outside-in and the inside-out. The exterior skin is a metaphor to the wooden ships of
Minnesota’s Nordic heritage. Yet this skin also houses the vertical circulation in an obvious way, easily perceived by all
users. The Stadium facade, lit at night, is an active addition to the streetscape and skyline.
One additional goal is to activate the building’s ground floor with year-round activities. Can we utilize gameday functions
such as concessions for daily use by citizens? Can the base of the Stadium be an active linear park on both sidelines that
links the Community Entry Plaza to the entire building? An activated building base that reflects the City’s culture and
love of the outdoors brings increased value in civic importance and non-gameday revenue.
Preliminary Design Package
74
3. The Strength of Efficiency
Our scheme is based on designing a maximized-efficiency seating bowl with amenities distributed at each level,
then wrapping this form with an enclosure that is unique to Minnesota. This approach allows for increased speed in
construction, a simplicity in form and a contextual response to the envelope.
4. Openness of the Stadium
In our design the moveable window, when combined with the roof system, will provide the vistas to downtown
Minneapolis desired by all stakeholders. We have designed a simple moving wall that stacks at the edge, providing a
clear opening of 340’ and a visible glass width of 680’.
We are also interested in investigating the size of the translucent roof panels to include more area over a larger portion
of the seating bowl. This may allow the roof to be fixed but, when combined with the large window opening, still
provide an incredibly open feel and lightness.
HNTB will partner with the SDC Group and project stakeholders in an exciting investigation of the possibilities, followed
by the well-conceived execution of a solution that is the New Home of Minnesota.
75
Site Design
The location of the New Minnesota Multipurpose Stadium on the site is clear. Based on the program and the building
size, the orientation northwest to 5th Street and its connection civically certainly make sense. The site does have some
challenges. The amount of construction that can be achieved while maintaining the existing Metrodome is the first issue
to review. This proximity will help determine the service access, the structural grid, constructability and schedule.
Evaluate All Options - Service access will also have to be studied carefully. With the desire to load and deliver directly
at the Event Level, an underground access may be an option. Our scheme looks at utilizing access from the existing 5th
Street at the southeast and terminating this roadway as the service entry. We are not at this early stage committed to
one approach and would need additional information to further study options with the SDC Group.
We have also studied the idea of placing below-grade parking on the open space gameday tailgating site. This would
allow for tailgating to occur at the top deck of an efficiently designed parking structure, right across the street just north
of the Stadium.
Our idea of linear parks along the sideline facades will create a pedestrian-scale streetscape element that can be utilized
year-round, uniquely identifiable to the new Minnesota Multipurpose Stadium.
Parking
Our design shows the 2,000 parking spaces within one block as requested in the RFP, as well as 500 parking spaces
within two blocks on gameday. Skyway or tunnel connections and dedicated walkways to the Stadium from the parking
facilities are crucial to their success and part of our design approach.
A timed pedestrian walk-up analysis depicting the number of existing parking facilities within acceptable walking
distances will account for multiple parking numbers. This, combined with the use of mass transit to the site, should help
the fan experience level in Minnesota. This will be part of our final site analysis during the Conceptual Design phase.

Community Entry Plaza
The Community Entry Plaza will be an incredible asset for the City. Our design adds a sideline-length linear Plaza on
both sides of the Stadium, increasing the area of the Plaza and enlivening the streetscape scale at the building’s edges.
These linear parks create a civic presence for the Stadium and speak to the value of The People’s Stadium as they rise
from the Plaza Main Concourse level up to the Terrace Level at the 50 yard line.
Revenue Generation - We have also chosen to look at placing the Restaurant function as part of the Community Entry
Plaza. We believe that the Restaurant can also help enliven the gameday Plaza area and will be successful all year-round.
An additional idea is to garner revenue from the Plaza on non-gamedays. To that end, we are investigating placing
video boards on the transit station arched wall as well as the Stadium facades facing the Plaza. The boards will also
function as an inviting terminus when viewed southeast down 5th Street and can be active for multiple Plaza functions,
from concerts to bike races to sporting events. The Community Entry Plaza will become a destination, reflective of the
multi-use nature of the Stadium and the Minnesota citizens’ love of the outdoors.

Event Level
The Event Level is located + 36’ below the Main Concourse entry, which is similar to the existing Metrodome. Service
access is provided by a recessed tunnel to a marshalling yard located northwest of the Stadium. The service drive will
utilize the existing street grid and be entered at the site’s southwest corner, separated from pedestrian traffic while
providing direct field grade access.
Multi-use Support - Per the program, the Event Level contains all of the functions necessary to operate a multi-use
facility including multiple locker room facilities, kitchen, commissary and all necessary maintenance and operational
spaces. The truck dock has direct access to the commissary and the service corridor for easy distribution of goods.
Premium Amenities - In addition to the operational needs for the Multipurpose Stadium, the Event Level also houses
a mixture of premium amenities. There is a 50 Yard Line Field Club at the west side line as well as 14 Sideline Suites,
10 End Zone Suites and an End Zone Sports Bar. Seating for these suites is located in the Lower Bowl above. These
amenities have a direct connection to the field for the teams and player/coaches interviews.
Flexibility - Corner vomitories and a continuous loop service corridor enable easy access and service for the multiple
configurations of the Stadium, including NFL football, concerts, baseball, soccer, motocross, etc.
The Event Level’s east sideline contains retractable seating which allows the Stadium to accommodate numerous annual
baseball events.

Plaza Level/Main Concourse
The Plaza Level/Main Concourse floor elevation is at grade, allowing for easy pedestrian access at all sides of the facility
and a direct connection with the large north plaza. Also located at the Concourse level are the Team Store, Ticketing and
an integrated Vikings Hall of Fame.
Ease of Wayfinding - Vertical circulation occurs at each of the four corners and with the Concourse define a simple cir-
culation pattern for ease in wayfinding. Entry lobbies and gates occur at all sides of the facility.
The required restrooms and concessions spaces are located on the outer edge of the Concourse allowing for a direct
visual connection for all patrons into the seating bowl as they circulate throughout the Main Concourse.
Activate the Street - An option to consider could be the idea of utilizing the Main Concourse facilities on a daily basis
for the general public. An active streetscape is essential to the success of a new facility and allowing patrons access to
concessions, the Team Store, Hall of Fame and other amenities will strengthen the Stadium design with the citizens of
Minneapolis.
A Club is also located on the east sideline of the Main Concourse. These Club patrons will sit directly in the Lower Bowl
seating sections and enjoy a close proximity to the field of action.

Terrace Level
The base of the building rises in grade along the building’s sidelines up to the Terrace Level, providing a green
pedestrian walkway, a bicycle path and vegetation for all citizens. The pathways are open all year and will truly be an
identifiable piece of the design of the New Minnesota Multipurpose Stadium.
Premium Amenities - Also located on this level are two Sideline Clubs at the front of the Mid-Deck Level between the
20 yard lines. These clubs seats and patio/club amenities have a great proximity to the Bowl and are a unique club
product in location and aesthetic.
Sponsorship Opportunities - At the Terrace Level there are two loge box locations below the two south scoreboards.
These Terraces can be used for multiple corporate events and can also be branded to specific sponsorships. The loge
boxes will have an excellent sight line to the action due to the close proximity to the field and provide yet another
amenity choice for fans.

sidelines for optimum viewing of game action. Suites include mini suites, with 6 to 8 seats, and individual suites seating
12 to 24 patrons. All suites have 22” seats and an operable glass enclosure on the field side.
Premium Amenities - Also located on the Lower Suite Level is an End Zone Sports Bar. This amenity allows larger groups
to sponsor an event or the general patron to enjoy a unique gameday experience.
All support spaces including pantries, restrooms, etc., are provided along with the vertical circulation to ensure ease of
access and patron distribution.
NFL Requirements - The Broadcast Booth is also located at this level, per NFL standards and appropriate sight lines.

Ease of Access and Circulation - Patrons located at the Suite Levels have the ability to look down into a central multi-sto-
ry lobby space and have direct access to their level per vertical circulation towers off the Main Concourse Level lobbies.
Also located at this level in the end zone, is the Press Box, including 200 writing stations, press dining and workroom,
restrooms and lounge. The Press Box has a direct circulation core with access to the Event Level and an entry at the
Main Concourse.
Additional spaces shown are for the home and visiting team coaches, video, radio, scoreboard, etc., as required for
a new state-of-the-art facility. The Visiting Owner Suite could also be located here at the 50 yard line, along with an
additional 10 suites that could be a unique feature of the design.

spaces which serve the Upper Bowl patrons.
Maximize Seating and Views - Vertical circulation occurs at the four corners, allowing for continuous ease of wayfinding
and patron access. Views out to the surrounding community are highlighted by placing the functions in-board of the
exterior wall.
The Upper Seating Bowl is designed with breaks in the southern corners to provide visual interest and maximize the
number of seats along the sidelines.
Seating is held back at the northern corners to maximize the window opening toward the Minneapolis skyline.
There are also Standing Room Only areas located just behind the window-side scoreboard locations, which come up to
rail height at these platforms.

The Seatng Bowl
Our approach to the Seating Bowl design is based on a highly efficient structural layout, minimum use of vomitories, a
large Lower Bowl with the majority of the fans close to the field, open views from the Main Concourse to the field and
the inclusion of a multitude of amenities distributed in the scheme to provide a unique fan experience.
Meet Program Criteria - The design reflects the program criteria for seat widths, space between aisles, aisle widths,
railings, tread depths and accessible seating. The seating capacity is at the required 65,000 seats and the Stadium can
expand to 72,000 seats as requested for the Super Bowl or other large events by placing temporary seating at the Main
and Upper Concourse Levels on the northern area below the large window.
Simple and Efficient - The stated construction cost, schedule goals and the targeted 1,500,000-square-foot program
dictate a design that is simple to construct, efficient in layout and that minimizes complexity. We are showing a
segmented Seating Bowl with a simple grid that will allow for ease in construction with a challenging schedule. Although
simple, the Seating Bowl is very marketable by virtue of seat placement relative to the field.
Our approach includes:
•Field Club seats and Sideline Suites for maximum proximity at the Event Level.
•Club Seats in the Lower Bowl sideline to maximize value and the fan experience.
•A Club at the east side of the Main Concourse to provide an additional amenity location with Lower Bowl seating..
•Clubs at the sidelines at the Terrace Level as well as at the end zones at the Event Level and the Lower Suite Level.
•The design places 69% of the seats below the Upper Deck, again increasing value and the ability to maximize seat
count for a variety of event types planned for the facility.
• 44% of the Seating Bowl is located along the sidelines between the extension of the back of the end zone lines
through the Bowl.
•The Seating Bowl sight lines allow for flexibility of all types of events and also provide potential to reduce the “size of
the house” if desired by utilizing screens to block off seating.
•The design can accommodate 65,000 seats without any seating above the Concourse Level at the north “window”,
thus maximizing the view back to the downtown skyline and allowing the Plaza to flow directly into the Stadium.

Roof Design/Operable Window
Our approach to the design of the Roof and Window is to look at options and determine with you which is best for
Minnesota, your fan base and community.
The Window operation has the potential to be quite special, opening to the City and Community Entry Plaza. Our
approach is to maximize the size of the Window opening and combine this with potential Roof options.
Our solutions have been developed in close coordination with Walter P Moore, structural engineers on the majority of
the operable roof facilities in the U.S. The real decision will be the desire for an operable Roof versus a fixed Roof, the
number of times the Roof is opened annually and the budgetary implications of any scheme. Whether fixed or operable,
we are determined and confident in our abilities to develop an innovative solution unique to Minneapolis.

Accelerated Design & Constructon
The entire staff that HNTB has proposed for the New Minnesota Multipurpose Stadium has extensive experience on
projects requiring some form of accelerated delivery. The development of a Sports and Entertainment facility invariably
comes with an unmoving opening date and dozens of people, agreements and elements that must come together to
bring the project to reality. Many times, not all the elements are conveniently in place at the time the project must start
in order to achieve the opening date. There may be unsettled regulatory or entitlement agreements, land ownership/
access restrictions may - for a time period - limit the area for the project, funding may only be partially secured –
these are just a few examples of elements that require a custom strategy for accelerated delivery of the design and
construction. This is the point at which a sequential design and construction process must be converted to a concurrent
process with interwoven design and construction tasks. Good communication, careful planning and flexibility within the
overall project team are required to develop the right flow of information and materials to compress a schedule under
these circumstances. HNTB has the team with a proven track record of performance and out-of-the-box thinking that
can deliver this project to achieve your schedule.
Communication - To compress a schedule, all parties need to understand the individual stakeholder’s goals, priorities
and challenges. Understanding these, the overall project team can develop the “road map” for working through the
process – prioritizing the timing of decisions all with an eye toward the opening date. Based on our years of experience,
HNTB will work with Ownership and the Contractor to identify the key milestone decisions and build an effective,
efficient design and document delivery schedule around the needs of the project team.
Planning - Delivering the final construction document packages based on a well thought out procurement and required-
in-the-field schedule facilitates the greatest compression of the overall project schedule. It is common to early bid site
work, utility work, foundations, concrete, mill order steel, and initiate procurement of long-lead fixed equipment such
as electrical switch gear, air handlers, elevators/escalators and curtain wall. A carefully planned schedule can allow for
a phased completion schedule, permitting portions of the project to open early to accommodate tenant move-in or an
event before the rest of the stadium is complete.
Quality Control - One of the key challenges facing the Design Team is the production of a coordinated set of design
documents, across multiple packages, released over time as the Contractor needs various parts for procurement and
construction. HNTB uses interdisciplinary coordination checklists and independent QA/QC reviews at key milestones
of each package. HNTB has been employing Building Information Modeling (BIM) as another tool that helps with the
coordination. This “virtual” coordination helps identify conflicts (clashes) between systems before they are constructed
in the field. It is much less expensive to correct a virtual conflict in the computer then a physical conflict in the field.
Risk Mitigation - There is an increased element of risk with fast track design and all members of the project team must
recognize and work together to mitigate the risk elements. As an example, sports and entertainment projects have
many players that have an impact on the design, but they may not be under contract at the optimal time in the process
to provide detailed input into the drawings. The food service vendor is a common example. Often the design must
move forward to meet schedule before the concessions operator is selected to give guidance on their project needs. In
these instances, the project takes on added risk of redesign for work that has already been bid and thus will experience
changes in the price of that work. There are ways to minimize this risk. As an example, the Design Team can propose, for
the Owner’s review and approval, assumed average utility load information based on past experience.
Contingency - One final, but very important element of a successful acceleration strategy is the establishment of well
thought out contingency lines in the project budget for less defined scope elements. All fast-track work that is bid prior
to the design being complete carries some level of risk associated with starting construction before all of the design
is complete and the related impacts are known. This is why CM/GCs with specific experience in the building type are
commonly brought on to help identify and avoid potential problems.
6. Describe your frm’s experience with prior fast track projects and/or public/private
development based projects and their delivery systems. Discuss your view as to appropriate
way(s) to proceed with this project.
107
The Owner’s best approach, given the need to fast track design and construction work, is to employ architects and
contractors that have successful experience with these types of projects. HNTB has this experience and we apply it to
our projects every day.
Project Example: New Santa Clara Stadium, San Francisco 49ers
Near the outset of the Design Development phase (one year ago this week), the 49ers identified an opportunity to
obtain the full financing for the project based on one caveat – the stadium had to open one year earlier than currently
scheduled. Opening was moved from 2015 to 2014.
To address this opportunity, HNTB and the Contractor, working with the 49ers, developed a road map for accelerating
the project - convincing the banks and the 49ers that the risk could be managed and the team would play football in
their new home for the 2014 season. What follows is a representative sampling of the key elements for that road map.
Design
• The main stadium project was broken into four major construction document packages released on a staggered,
but greatly accelerated schedule – (1) Demolition/Mass Excavation & Deep Underground Utilities, (2) Structural
Foundations and Primary Frame, (3) Core & Shell, (4) Tenant Build-out & Sponsorship Elements.
• Separate infrastructure packages surrounding the site were accelerated to the Construction Document level while
the rest of the project was in the Design Development phase.
• Multiple structural systems were analyzed for schedule impact and cost. An all-steel structure was deemed the
best choice.
• HNTB initiated the preparation of structural Construction Documents mid-way through the Design Development
phase. The structural grid and primary framing elements were locked in and treated as “sacred” by the rest of the
design team. Other systems were coordinated around the structure as though it already existed.
• The project team partnered with the City of Santa Clara to establish a concurrent peer review process for the struc-
tural construction documents. The peer review engineer also performed the plan check review for the City.
• HNTB’s structural engineer developed a mill order package as an interim step in completing the structural construc-
tion documents.
• Peer review and plan check review were completed concurrently with the completion of the structural
construction documents.

Construction
• A drilled pile system was selected for speed and minimization of noise impact on the surrounding neighbors.
• The primary and secondary electrical rooms on the Field Level were constructed as the pile caps were being com-
pleted. The provision of permanent power was determined to be a critical path element in terms of the schedule.
• The stadium is being built in four pieces all simultaneously constructed with four individual crews and cranes.
• Systems such as plumbing trees for all the restrooms are being pre-fabricated based on careful coordination with
the Design Team and early shop drawings while the Construction Documents are under completion.
Project Organizational Structure - The 49ers project was a unique, but very effective delivery structure between
the Architect, Owner and Contractor. HNTB worked directly with the 49ers from the concept phase through Design
Development. During that same period, the Contractor worked in a pre-construction role maintaining the overall
project budget, developing the master schedule and providing constructability reviews of the documents. This
arrangement allowed the 49ers to control the quality and scope of the project to a point that provided a level of
definition satisfactory to the Team. At the completion of Design Development all three parties worked to develop a
Guaranteed Maximum Price (GMP). In order to secure funding, 75% of the GMP had to be based on market confirmed
pricing through sub-trade bids. Once the GMP was executed, HNTB transitioned to the Design-Build team under the
Contractor to complete the construction documents and provide construction administration support - single source of
responsibility through the Design-Builder, seamless design responsibility through HNTB.
Public/Private Partnership – As a part of the final deal between the City of Santa Clara and the 49ers, and in order
to tap special funds, $75M of the project budget was set aside to be bid under a different procurement process –
run through the City of Santa Clara. The first of these packages was known as the “Make Ready” work – all the work
necessary to move the utilities and street away from the footprint of the stadium. This scope was initially designed
under the HNTB contract, then was separated and accelerated through a direct contract with the City administered
by the 49ers. To ensure proper coordination of the on-site and off-site utilities, the same Civil Engineer completed the
design under each contract – working closely with both HNTB and the 49ers.
Project Example: Sports Authority Field at Mile High, Denver Broncos
This new Design-Build NFL stadium faced a variety of challenges due to land availability and the need to maintain access
to Old Mile High Stadium during construction. Close coordination and communication with the City and County were
necessary to overcome these challenges.
A new approach – As the start date for construction approached, it became clear that the project would not have full
control over the entire site. There was a street that ran through the center of the stadium that had to remain open to
access parking required for old McNichols Arena located just up the hill from the new stadium. In order to maintain the
new stadium opening date a different approach was required or the project would slide by one year.
In lieu of the then traditional approach of building a stadium in a spiral movement, the Design-Build Team developed
a strategy to break the stadium into eight segments – building it as eight separate mid-rise structures. This innovative
approach allowed the northern half of the stadium to proceed while the project awaited the vacation of the street
and access to the parcels on the southern half of the site.
Re-tooling the approach – Shortly after the successful referendum to fund the project, the City and County became
more actively engaged in the project through a Design Review process. Early in the process it became clear that the
Design Review was going to alter the exterior look and materials of the building, but at the same time the project had
to continue construction to meet the opening date. Working collaboratively with the project stakeholders, HNTB
developed a strategy to separate the skin of the building from the core of the building, allowing construction to
proceed on the bulk of the project while HNTB worked with the City and County and finalized the exterior façade.
Maintaining operations – Due to site constraints, Sports Authority Field was constructed less than 50’ from old Mile
High Stadium. Mile High had to remain active for both the Broncos’ football season and other events traditionally held
off-season during the entire period of construction - providing safe ingress and egress for the fans at all times.
109
The new stadium separated the old stadium from much of the parking inventory on-site. Special planning and careful
coordination on a weekly basis between all the stakeholders facilitated a smooth event day operation at old Mile High.
As a result of careful planning and creative execution, this project was delivered two weeks ahead of schedule and $4.5
million under budget.

constructon.
For the stadium project, careful planning of separate construction projects with multiple bid packages with alternates,
has been key to achieving the University’s fast-track schedule of limiting football to just one season off campus,
minimizing the impacts of construction activities to the surrounding campus and neighbors, and to delivering renovated
and new facilities in increments matched to the pace of the Athletics Department’s ability to raise the necessary funds.
Careful planning facilitated construction to lower the field and provide modern amenities within the existing bowl of Memorial Stadium at UC-Berkeley

The People’s Stadium: Issues to Consider
Based on HNTB’s experience with these accelerated-delivery projects, as well as many others, and our innovative
planning/design approach, our A/E Team will provide MSFA and the Vikings with the expertise and commitment to
successfully deliver The People’s Stadium on schedule. Based on our current knowledge of the project goals, we are
eager to begin the process and have identified some topics that can help accelerate the process, as listed below.
• Clearly established decision making structure
• Structured, weekly communication between the project stakeholders – Including the leadership of the approving
agencies.
• Partnering with the local jurisdiction on the overall packaging of the documents and review/ approval schedule.
• An accelerated programming phase to create the written description of the stadium with an early review and
approval as the guiding document.
• Early establishment of the materials and equipment procurement and required in the field schedule – Assists with
the determination of construction document packaging and definition of long lead items.
• Early definition of the technology elements – Allows proper planning and integration of the infrastructure.
• Early selection of the food service provider – Confirms layouts and utility loads early in the design process.
• Early construction of a Premium Sales Center – Provides customer feedback early and acts as a mock-up to con-
firm the design details/materials before constructing 150+ units.
• Place key, time critical infrastructure elements (electrical substations) within the eastern half of the building.
• Study modular systems and consistent “typical” plan layouts for repetitive spaces such as restrooms to facilitate
pre-fabrication, which accelerates construction.
• Establish a time to stop input from the stakeholders to the design, but maintain a list of elements to complete.
Views On Ways To Proceed With This Project
Regarding appropriate ways to proceed with this project, we believe that all parties understand the importance of
some critical decisions that will drive the project. The team will need to focus first on vetting the costs and options
for the Vikings to play 1 or 2 seasons at TCF, and to determine if the retractable roof will be included in the project.
Both of these decisions will impact the stadium design and construction process. Once the direction is determined on
these two decisions we anticipate with this project that there will need to be a sequence of bid packages which we
have shown on our Detailed Design Schedule under item 24 of this RFP. Those bid packages would likely include as a
minimum:
1. Demolition, Utilities and Infrastructure
2. Foundations
3. Superstructure
4. Core and Shell
5. Tenant Buildout and Sponsorship
Additional separate bid packages for items such as; Landscape/Hardscape, Garage Structures, Artwork and other may be
the most efficient approach to both; take advantage of the marketplace and to focus on the critical path. It is possible
that the determination of playing 1 or 2 seasons at TCF may drive decisions to have more than one bid-package for
Demolition, Utilities and Infrastructure as well as for Foundations. This could also be applied to the other packages
depending on many factors that have impact to cost of sharing risk between multiple contractors on large building
components, as well as other factors.
111
Most all of HNTB’s buildings projects are implemented using a Construction Management or Design Build approach.
While there are many variations to both of these approaches, we have found both to be highly successful. The most
important Keys to Success with this type of large, complex, high-profile public/private project are:
A. To fairly balance the risks of all parties while seeking to minimize the Owner’s Design and Contracting Risks
B. To allow for maximum competition within the stadium construction sector
C. To bring both the Architect and the Contractor on-board at the beginning of the design process.
D. To have full control of the Architect during the Design Phase to assure the Owner achieves the design they want.
E. To have the Contractor OWN the estimates, constructability and DB schedules moving forward toward a DB Contract
or as part of a CM Contract.
F. Owner + Architect + Contractor: All working together collaboratively from the very start of Planning and Design.
G. Clear lines of communications amongst ALL three parties: Owner, Architect, Contractor.
H. Cost/Schedule Management - Refer to our response to RFP item 9 on implementing controls related to budget and
schedule compliance.
This approach may be achieved in either the Hybrid Design-Build methodology (some call DB Bridging) or a CM at Risk
procurement process, provided the Keys to Success are implemented. In the application of a CM at Risk approach, the
Owner would simply have separate contracts with the Architect and the Contractor for the duration of the project. Both
approaches have strong merit.

Our approach and methodology for implementing project controls relating to budget and schedule compliance is
comprised of two components: Foundation and Methods.
FOUNDATION
The Foundation of our approach and methodology for schedule and budget project controls includes the following key
elements: 1) Clear Communications, 2) Quality Assurance, 3) Close Coordination with the Construction Manager, 4)
Integrated Technology, and 5) Proactive Permitting. These key areas set the stage for our team to implement methods to
manage the work related to schedule and budget.
Clear Communications: HNTB actively engages the Owner, Team and CM in a regular bi-weekly design review meeting
throughout the early phases of the design process. This allows HNTB the benefit of a direct, continuous dialog with the
key stakeholders, so we can keep the project design “on track” and all participants fully informed, and able to adjust to
new information as it becomes known. Direct participation by the SDC Group, timely input and clear decision making
are key factors in meeting the project budget and achieving the project schedule. The most important project control
elements for maintaining budget and schedule are good communication.
Quality Assurance: As a part of standard practice HNTB implements a mandatory detailed Quality Assurance Program
that has multiple layers of review and is consistently applied for all of our consultants via our contracts with each. Our
Quality Assurance Program starts with our time-tested HNTB standards for all drawings, electronic systems, forms
of communication, scheduling and documentation. Drawing standards keep the drawings across multiple disciplines
consistent, reducing coordination issues. Strict document control and communication processes are essential for
keeping the project on time and on budget. HNTB has developed detailed checklists for inter-disciplinary coordination
that are distributed to our consultant team and used throughout all stages of design. State-of-the-art software and
our in-house QA/QC program are only part of a thorough quality control process. HNTB conducts independent internal
reviews, utilizing non-project staff as well as staff from our consultant team to review the design and the building
systems just prior to milestone package releases. These review teams provide a “second set of eyes.” Finally, just prior to
the release of a milestone package, a single copy of the entire set of drawings is plotted for a page-turn review to verify
that everything will print as anticipated.

stadiums and comparable facilites that were constructed within the established budget and
fulflled the defned project program.
119
Close Coordination with the Construction Manager: Our design approach includes continuous collaboration with the
Construction Manager throughout the design process. This close coordination, combined with our extensive experience
on similar sports and entertainment venues, enables us to manage the project within the established budget and overall
schedule, as we did with Sports Authority Field at Mile High - a project that was delivered under budget and ahead of
schedule.
Our approach to maintaining and controlling budget begins by agreeing on the initial program scope and the cost of
the project at the first kickoff meeting – establishing the baseline project budget. At each subsequent meeting, design
decisions can be measured against the baseline budget. With input from both HNTB and the CM, the Owner and Team
can make informed decisions about how the project is shaped going forward. An informed decision-making process is
key to maintaining the overall budget throughout the duration of the project.
Integrated Technology: An important and integrated element to all of this work is the application of BIM. As described
in our response to question 15 of this RFP, please note that the BIM benefits to managing schedule and budget include
HNTB’s use of 4D applications, partnering directly with the Construction Manager, whether the delivery is CMAR
or Design-Build, to deliver accurate visualization and sequencing prior to the start of construction as well as during
construction in key areas. This approach helps to refine the project schedule, better manage the construction site, and
plan efficiently and confidently. To accomplish this, HNTB uses a proprietary tool called VEO that was co-developed
with one of HNTB’s technology partners. This software utilizes cutting-edge cloud computing and unprecedented multi-
platform connectivity to provide a solution to the conflicts encountered between BIM software utilized by both the A/E
and construction industry.
Also, at the start of the work with the Construction Manager we will agree on the specific plan for identifying quantities
in cost estimating so that we can easily provide back-up quantity-take-offs to the CM for any portion of the project. This
process gives the CM added confidence in having the ability to readily check quantities in other estimates.
Proactive Permitting: HNTB’s Permit Manager and our Code Consultant will work with the SDC Group and the City of
Minneapolis and approval agencies at the outset of the project to streamline the process of communications as much
as possible. Confirming the key contacts and establishing working relationships and review and approval schedule
expectations is highly beneficial to schedule control. We used this methodology for both the Sports Authority at Mile
High Stadium and San Francisco 49ers projects.
METHODS
HNTB has incorporated various methods to manage schedule and budget. Our experience is that these methods, when
used in combination, provide a powerful approach to meeting project schedules and budget. The following are some of
the methods we have utilized to manage schedule and budget on projects.
• Comparative Analysis
Approach and Methodology
120
• Aggressive Bi-Weekly Cost Containment
• Prioritizing Cost for Highest Return on Investment
• Multiple and Reconciled Cost Estimates
• Sub-Contractor Coordination
• Market Conditions Adjustments
• Fast Track and/or Advance Bid Packages
• Procurement
We believe the best approach is for the SDC Group, CM and A/E Team to discuss each of these methods at the outset
of the project and agree which will be selected for use on this project. The following are descriptions with examples of
these methods:
Comparative Analysis: HNTB recognizes the benefit in having early participation by the Construction Manager to
test ideas and material selections against cost, schedule, constructability and longevity considerations. HNTB actively
explores options to provide best value recommendations to Ownership as primary building systems are being designed
and considered. Appropriately, Exhibit D to this RFP calls for detailed comparative analysis during Schematic Design for
the Mechanical Systems, Structural Framing, Fixed Roof vs. Retractable Feature Concepts, Electrical Design and other.
Our typical approach is also to research, compare and vet these types of systems on our projects. For example, for the
Sports Authority Field at Mile High Stadium, early in the process we evaluated multiple structural systems with the
Contractor, including all steel, all concrete, pre-cast and hybrid steel/concrete. Our work included structural schematics
for each to a level that the contractor could evaluate and price. For that project the hybrid steel/concrete was selected
for schedule benefits, lower overall cost and constructability. Working collaboratively with our Structural Engineer,
the CM and Owner Group, our analysis typically takes into account the many aspects of a stadium structural frame
comparative analysis that will impact the project, such as bay spacing and material options - understanding their impact
on the suite modules, floor-to-floor height, methods of fireproofing and the architectural aesthetic of the stadium
among other things. We prepare a matrix from this study to use as a tool to communicate with the Owner and Team the
various considerations as the project team reaches a decision of which system to use.
Aggressive and Bi-Weekly Cost Containment: Another good example of managing the budget is the overall team
approach implemented on the San Francisco 49ers. During Design/Pre-Construction, the Owner’s representative very
proactively managed ALL proposed changes with ALL associated costs and schedule impacts – virtually daily. This kept
everyone on the same page and minimized surprises. Early on in the design process (concept through early-schematics)
meetings with Owner, Architect and Contractor occurred every two weeks, later moving to every three weeks. This
almost religious approach by the Owner’s representative to keeping detailed track of all proposed changes along with
their related costs and schedule impacts was a key ingredient to success.
Prioritizing Cost for Highest ROI: One simple, but important method of maintaining control of cost and adhering to the
schedule is to understand where the major costs occur and how to keep those components simple and straight forward.
For the SF 49ers New Stadium we began with the concept of keeping our design simple and open, letting the building
structure express the architectural design. The plan geometry for the bowl was a series of straight segments but with a
minimal number of bends in the plan as the seating wraps around the playing field. It is a strong and disciplined concept
that carried through the project, and due to this thoughtful approach we have worked within the budget through the
course of design and facilitated a more aggressive schedule due to the simplicity of the construction. For the New
Minnesota Multipurpose Stadium we believe a similar approach that focuses on a very straightforward and symmetrical
structural grid with uniform bay sizes will be critical to meet budget and schedule. If this can be accomplished and
meet the project goals then we should have more opportunity to focus the budget on the look and feel of the building.
Basically putting the money where you can see it, such as the buildings’ exterior skin and the quality of the interior
finishes rather than a complex structural framing system.
Multiple & Reconciled Cost Estimates: One approach we have used on other projects is to keep the cost estimate
in-check with the budget by maintaining two separate and independent estimates on the project. The CM/GC carries
one estimate and the owner has a second independent estimate done by a third party estimator. The format and
approach to quantity-take-offs are agreed upon by both estimating groups, as well as methodologies for handling
contingency monies. The two estimates are fire-walled from each other and once completed, the estimators must meet
and finalize a single agreed-upon reconciled estimate. With this approach we have the benefit of two sets of eyes and
121
pushing/testing each other to arrive at the conclusion.
Sub-Contractor Coordination: We frequently work with the Construction Manager to bring key subcontractors into the
discussion that will be constructing the work. In meetings with those subs we confirm availability of materials and skilled
labor, constructability and sequencing issues, materials staging and delivery issues, and all cost considerations. On
critical items we use this approach with multiple subs that provide the same work, so that we can truly understand the
best methodology to keep the quality desired, and meet the schedule on budget.
Given the compressed nature of this schedule, the Construction Manager may need to select sub-contractors and
engage them early during the design process to get the value of their approach and market place understanding. Their
participation could lead to a design assist approach in developing the final construction documents – working with HNTB
to use the details specific to their system or material. This is beneficial to the entire project team as you obtain input on
local construction techniques and cost. An additional benefit to this approach is an expedited shop drawing preparation
and review process - providing another opportunity to get ahead in the overall project schedule. The Construction
Manager will need to have an agreed-upon proactive approach with the SDC Group to manage any risks in reduced
competition with pre-selected subs. There are several methods to address this such as preliminary bid-packages to
multiple subs as a first step, and close change-management.
Market Condition Adjustments: Competition in the marketplace may demand large bid packages or perhaps smaller bid
packages. For Michigan Stadium, during a cycle of increase in steel prices due to world market conditions, HNTB assisted
the Construction Manager in developing a procurement schedule and steel bid-packaging approach that took advantage
of market demand balanced with moderately sized highly competitive sub-contractors. The multiple steel package
approach used on Michigan Stadium pro-actively kept the project on budget.
Fast Track and/or Advance Bid-Packages: Together we work with the Construction Manager to identify long-lead items
and assist with adjustments to the design schedule to make sure that the drawings and specifications necessary for
procurement are produced with the proper scope and in the appropriate sequence to meet the schedule. Steel mill-
order, switchgear, elevators/escalators, HVAC components, glazing systems and specialty lighting are typical items that
may typically require long-lead time and are regular candidates for specific bid packages tailored to fast-tracking project
components to meet the schedule.
Procurement: It may be appropriate to consider the use of a Design-Build approach for select elements of the building
such as the roof mechanization system, the curtainwall and the food service equipment. Both Design-Assist and Design-
Build approaches have been employed on the San Francisco 49ers project and at Sports Authority Field at Mile High
Stadium, resulting in decreased time from drawing board to field.

HNTB Design Philosophy
Sports Architecture is a deep part of HNTB’s history and expertise. Understanding the tradition of Sports Architecture at
HNTB is central to understanding our philosophy. More than 40 years ago HNTB created one of the premier sports and
entertainment venues in the United States - Truman Sports Complex, comprised of Arrowhead Stadium and Kauffman
Stadium. Icons within the sports and entertainment market, both facilities were designed to provide a one-of-a-kind
spectator experience that continues today, while most facilities of that era are now considered obsolete.
Today, HNTB is recognized as a national leader in the planning and design of professional, civic and collegiate stadiums
and event centers. HNTB has played an integral part in more than 50 stadium projects. These facilities include specialized
multi-use venues for football, baseball and soccer, ballparks and domed stadiums, as well as all types of family
entertainment events and concerts.
Our history is based on innovation in sports architecture. Our philosophy is to continue our innovative leadership in
sports architecture through our TEAM + KNOWLEDGE + APPROACH.
TEAM: Our Design Teams are developed based on a combination of inspirational leadership, experts and new talent
that have the chemistry to work together collaboratively, challenge each other aggressively and push each other to
exceed the Owner’s goals. With the right team, a level of camaraderie and team-spirit is revealed that propels the team
with great momentum.
Our design philosophy includes having multiple designers work together. While one designer will be the Lead, the other
designers are each leaders in their own right. These designers form a bond and become the catalyst for the concepts we
develop with the stakeholders. To be a member of the Design Team, the individuals must have a balance of talent and
collaborative ability. We are good listeners and we take the time to understand what is truly important to the stakeholder
group. We then take what we have heard and develop design options to evaluate with the stakeholders. No single
designer will create all of the design decisions. The Design Lead balances the creative ideas that advance into clear design
concepts. Each concept is developed and vetted with Ownership until we achieve a powerful design that embodies the
Owner’s vision.
Our first step is to provide that right team to each project - the right team with the right experience to properly
conceptualize the design and execute that concept through to the opening event.
“ Our stadium will be an economically and environmentally
sustainable showcase for innovation in the Silicon Valley, which
consistently delivers to an ever-growing community of fans,
partners and employees the most elegantly satisfying outdoor
sports and entertainment experiences in the world.”

For The People’s Stadium of Minnesota our Lead Designer and Design Manager is Tim Cahill. Tim will be supported
by two designers - Fernando Vazquez and Scott Capstack. This group of three designers will be the core Design Team
working directly with Mike Handelman, Project Director, and the balance of the A/E Team. Tim will lead the overall
design as he has done on Sports Authority Field at Mile High Stadium and for the San Francisco 49ers. This includes
leading all aspects of the design, such as the programmatic arrangement of spaces, functional flow, structural systems,
the seating bowl, finish materials, etc.
Working with Tim, Fernando Vazquez will focus on Branding/Theming and how the building exterior extends into
its surrounding context. His experience in creating the urban and architectural design concepts for MCI Arena in
Washington, DC and his implementation of the public arts program for Chase Field in Phoenix are good examples of
Fernando’s global design skills and ability to see new opportunities in design. This will be of key importance on this
stadium project for areas such as the stadium entrance plaza, the connection to the Chicago Avenue streetscape and the
potential for a new linear plaza.
Fernando’s diverse experience in Branding and Theming for projects such as the 1984 Los Angeles Olympics, the Las
Vegas Fashion Show, the San Francisco 49ers and many other examples will be employed here to deliver a level of
sophistication well-integrated with the overall design. Fernando will collaborate with Scott Capstack and with our
consultant Catt Lyon Design for Branding and Theming in Public Spaces and Premium Areas.
Scott Capstack will focus on the design of Premium Amenity and Hospitality areas, working with the SDC Group
and consultants to determine the optimum location and seating capacities for these specialty areas. Scott will also
coordinate with Food Service and the Stadium Sales Team to design each space. Scott’s experience in hospitality design
for numerous NFL facilities and major convention centers provides our team with a design sensitivity of what sells and
how to get the most for the money. Scott will coordinate with our Interiors/LEED Manager Tambra Thorson to create the
design and ‘feel’ of each space to be truly unique and targeted to its customer group.
We also understand that the operations and maintenance costs of stadiums - and the huge amount of materials and
energy that go into building them - demand extra attention to sustainability. Our philosophy is to strive for minimal
impact to the environment from start through completion of our work. Material and equipment selection are carefully
studied through life-cycle analysis to arrive at the best design decisions with you.
HNTB anticipates communicating the design and the work for the planned appearances on the Authority’s behalf at
meetings such as community and neighborhood organizations, consumer interest organizations and special needs user
groups. Jan Stenerud will be our Community Liaison for those meetings. Jan will work directly with Mike Handelman
and Tim Cahill in making those presentations. Jan has worked with HNTB for more than 20 years and is highly skilled at
building relationships with key organizations.

KNOWLEDGE: Our team analyzes the latest designs of NFL stadiums, large-scale event centers, public image projects
and international sports projects as a starting point in design. We make it our business to do the research and TO KNOW
the industry so that we will confidently launch into design of the next advance in the state-of-the-art with you. We meet
regularly with operators, sales teams and owners of these facilities and combine that information into our extensive
database of information to stay current on what is ‘known’ in the industry. The type of information includes everything
from which suite configuration sells the best in a given market and time, to how often a retractable roof is opened and
closed, as well as many other examples such as viewing distance to the field of play, number and location of club spaces,
quantities of elevators and escalators, number of event days and more. This process of Benchmarking increases our
knowledge of the industry but, as importantly, is what we do with that benchmarking:
• The information we gather is discussed and debated internally to test and confirm what we see and hear in the
marketplace.
• We build the information into our extensive and ‘live’ database.
• And we use that database proficiently.
While all of our key team members have significant NFL experience, Lanson Nichols is our NFL and Events Specialist who
has written programs for three NFL Stadiums and worked with Super Bowl bid criteria. Lanson understands the set-up
and configurations for multi-event stadiums, and the critical nature of the smooth turnover of events for large multi-use
venues. Programming and planning of the event level, broadcast needs and security are just a few of the areas on which
he will focus.
APPROACH: Our Approach is to Maximize Revenue in the Facility by Maximizing Customer Demand at all price-
points. We call this approach ‘Beyond Branding/The Next Generation.’ Through this approach we target the greatest
cross section of the population that we want to come to the Stadium and return again and again. To maximize customer
demand, we create a fan experience that will be the best in class. We do this by focusing on:
Strong Urban Design
Designing a beautiful building into its context and community that is attractive for people to come and see. This
begins with creating a sense-of-place and the arrival experience. The Stadium must be absolutely Minnesota. We
use materials that are of the region and locale, combined to celebrate the environment. In Minneapolis the rich
cultural pride of Norwegian and European heritage and the outdoors are strong components to guide the shape,
form and finish of the building. The way our design meets the exterior plaza and surrounding streets and sidewalks
will encourage interaction with local events such as Art Fairs, Culinary Fairs, Bike Races, Civic Ceremonies and much
more. The plaza must be large and spacious and landscaped to be comfortable for a wide variety of events. The
views of the Stadium from all directions will be carefully planned, and opportunities to connect with downtown
Minneapolis and the river will figure prominently into our planning.
130

For The People’s Stadium we envision that portions of the Stadium could open up to the plaza so that even during
non-event times specific areas inside the stadium may be connected to the plaza. Those areas may include the
restaurant or concessions, a concourse area at the end-zone and team store. That approach will be carefully studied
and integrated with the operations and security of the facility.
The Best Hospitality Experience
From every mode of arrival - car, bus, train and walkup - we design each element for the visitors and fans. We
create a system of wayfinding so that all visitors easily find their way throughout the building. This is done through
a balance of large-, medium- and small-scale nodal points that allow the customer to constantly understand where
they are in the building. The Public Arts Program is one way that we bring both the character and feel of Minnesota
into the building, and is also utilized as nodal points for wayfinding. This is reinforced with the integration of
Sponsor Zones with which fans will interact. Spacious concourses and easy-to-find/use restrooms and concessions
are all part of the planning.
The level of food quality and food service is paramount to the customer experience. This is another excellent way to
celebrate the uniqueness of Minnesota married into the Stadium. The location and number of cooking kitchens and
the scents and aromas that permeate the air are all part of designing to the customer experience. This needs to be
done – just right.
The Theater of the Seating Bowl
The seating bowl is the theater of the event. How the customer feels as the lights go up or dim, in an environment
that creates goose-bumps and excitement with the anticipation and actual event is what we create. The excellence
of the sound-system and lighting for everything from NFL to Concerts and National Conventions is tailored to this
theater. How the array of digital imagery is designed as a whole and flashed and shown is integral to the symphony
of many events.
The intimacy of the seating bowl is dramatically influenced by early design decisions. We understand how that
intimacy is affected by multiple decks, vomitories, the steepness of the rake of the bowl, and integration of suites
and clubs. We guide the Ownership toward the level of intimacy that will produce the best fan experience and that
works with the budget and construction sequencing.

The shape and operation of the roof and large windows add tremendous drama to the Stadium and seating bowl.
The size, placement and speed-of-opening these components, as well as the ability to convey light or black-out,
impact the fan experience and are major cost items. Our approach is to integrate these into the drama of the
event, and to assure that these are aligned with the budget. Joe Diesko will lead our team for the retractable roof
and operable windows components. Joe was the project director for Chase Field with its retractable roof and large
operational side-panels. Joe will be supported in that work by his Roof Team - Bob Jalilvand, Kenton Higgins and
Greg Prelogar, each with experience on either NFL or MLB retractable roofs.
Premium Areas
Working with the market analyst we will design into the Stadium the optimal type and quantity of clubs, club seats,
suites, loge boxes and other premium areas. The diversity of these spaces can reinforce the exclusive nature of
each and reinforce the demand for all of these spaces. For the San Francisco 49ers we designed nine different club
spaces, each unique and desirable to its group of customers, and sales of those premium amenities are ahead of
expectations.
We understand that the market demand for premium areas changes over time. Suites that may be the top-sellers
today may wane in the future – or the reverse may occur. Club seats, Mini-suites and Loge Boxes may all be
impacted similarly. To address this we design as much flexibility into these areas as possible, looking at both what
happens if demand increases or decreases for each amenity and how the design will flex with that in the future.
For the Sports Authority Field at Mile High Stadium we designed in extra space for future suites and the additional
suite space was captured to meet demand during construction.
Integrated Sponsorship and Advertising
We design into the building pre-determined locations for Sponsorship and Advertising based on collaboration with
the Owner to develop the maximum revenue opportunity that gives each advertiser and sponsor the best way to
showcase their own brand, while maintaining the overall brand of the Stadium. Each market is unique and your
market will determine whether this strategy will include two, four, six or another number of foundation sponsors,
or whether there will be one prime sponsor and other ‘corner-stone’ sponsors. As the strategy is developed, we
will provide three-dimensional views of the spaces and locations for those sponsors to be showcased, incorporating
design concepts for their brand.

For sponsors and advertisers we will create areas for interaction with the fans and users. It’s critical for us to
guide the integration of the design of these areas so that revenue and interaction is maximized. For example,
using a broadband network provider’s product in the Stadium and showcasing their participation in the Stadium
design via their own technology such as advertisement on the scoreboard is highly visible and fully integrated.
Conversely examples such as product graphics on a concourse floor surface become invisible when the floors are
filled with people.

The Next Generation of Technology
People won’t go without their phone. Understanding this, and integrating customer interaction with the event
through hand-held devices, is the gateway to in-Stadium technology. High Density wifi systems that allow
the maximum number of wireless devices to function at the event are key to achieving this level of customer
interaction.
Beyond Branding/Next Generation: Taken together the above elements combine so that the uniqueness of the design
goes far beyond an overlay of branding. Instead the brand is deeply embedded throughout the project, its history and
its development. Ours is an Integrated Design Approach which includes all critical design components moving forward
together from the outset.
Maximize Revenue: The revenue generating aspects of the design are fundamental to the success of the project. We
pride ourselves on looking for innovative ways to generate stadium revenue. Members of our team have pioneered
concepts in sports facilities, such as Loge Box Seating in Collegiate Stadiums. We do this by paying attention and
always looking for new ways to entertain and engage your guests. It’s critical to advance sales of premium amenities,
sponsorship, advertising and season tickets early in the process. We work with the Ownership to develop high-quality
sales or preview centers, as we have done for the San Francisco 49ers, in order to achieve early sales. Our work in
developing these types of facilities with 3D imagery, models and mockups can move sales forward dramatically.
Listen and Collaborate: We listen closely to you so that we clearly understand your goals. The ideas we develop in
our work with you will be innovative and will demonstrate that we have indeed listened to you. We use the latest

HNTB is a nationally-recognized technology leader in the AEC industry, known for taking the application of Building
Information Modeling (BIM) beyond the initial schematic design effort and maximizing the power of this tool for full
production of construction documents, energy performance modeling, and operations/maintenance modeling.
HNTB’s technology solutions incorporate an integral process that allows designers, estimators and project stakeholders
to make decisions quickly and efficiently. Our integrated approach reduces rework, limits redundancy, streamlines work
plans and verifies alignment with building standards while finding better ways to reduce costs.
BIM resources and tools utilized by HNTB include:
Incubation Center
One key to HNTB’s success is the establishment of our Incubation Center where industry-leading subject matter experts
collaborate to deliver technology innovation on complex projects. This group of 60 technology specialists is dedicated
to research and development of technology tools that help project teams visualize, simulate, validate and collaborate
on design information more effectively. Computer scientists work in conjunction with building practitioners to develop
custom-built technology that support the demands of today’s complex projects. Whether these solutions involve adding
capabilities to existing tools, linking previously incompatible platforms or creating software from the ground-up, HNTB’s
Incubation Center makes projects more efficient.
3D Visualization
HNTB’s visualization tools and services go beyond the traditional “fly through” to create complex models that are
quantitatively and analytically accurate. By combining design and construction models with cost and sequencing data,
we create models that visually demonstrate the design in conjunction with quantities and hard metrics. This improves
communication and decision making, thus reducing risk and advancing the schedule.
HNTB’s set of analytical tools create interactive, data-rich 3D models for design review and collaboration. These
immersive models combine data from BIM, CAD and other 3D formats such as subcontractor manufacturing models.
Current features allow us to import all these models into a gaming engine platform where team members can walk, drive
or fly through the building. In addition, these virtual walk-throughs can be done alongside a project timeline so that
subcontractors and other stakeholders can see when and where work is being done, and where staging can occur.
Sequencing/VEO
Employing 4-D applications, HNTB partners directly with our contractor partners - whether CMAR or Design-Build -
to deliver accurate visualization and sequencing prior to the start of construction in order to streamline the project
schedule, better manage the construction site, and plan efficiently and confidently. To accomplish this, HNTB uses a
proprietary tool called VEO that was co-developed with one of HNTB’s technology partners. This software utilizes cutting-
edge cloud computing and unprecedented multi-platform connectivity to provide a solution to the conflicts encountered
between BIM software utilized by both the A/E and construction industry.

Informaton Modeling or others you deem important to the design and constructon process.
HNTB creates data-rich, interactive
3D models that can convey design
ideas quickly and efficiently and
allow for the visualization of
construction sequencing.

VEO brings several important advantages to project teams:
•Real-time Visualization: Designers using VEO can directly reference geometry created in Revit, assign physically
accurate lighting and materials for renderings and navigate buildings in real time. Real-time walkthroughs are
almost immediate and can be used to convey design information to owners and subcontractors in the field.
•Construction Sequencing: Development is underway on tools that will allow the assignment of construction
sequencing (4D) properties to elements created by Revit. Two-way connectivity between Revit and Primavera P6 is
one of the key benefits of VEO.
•Collaboration Tools: VEO allows project teams and stakeholders to view and comment on VEO content in real time,
through the Internet, allowing for “what-if” scenarios to be easily considered.
•Cloud Computing: VEO utilizes a distributed computing model, which moves all computer-intensive calculations to
the cloud. This means that VEO content is always accessible through the Internet to any team member with a lap-
top and a web connection.
•Ease of Use: VEO has been designed with contractor usability from the ground-up. Minimal training will be
required in part due to its link to P6 and MS Project, allowing schedulers to work in a familiar environment.
Pre-D Notes®
To reduce the risk and time associated with managing programmatic requirements, HNTB created Pre-D Notes®,
which provides the entire design team with a structure to organize design data. Everyone involved in the project can
contribute, update and comment on the project’s detailed requirements using a standard Web browser and Internet
connection. This unique tool enables teams led by HNTB to work together to define, manage and cross-check the
requirements for building elements. After requirements have been gathered, information within the Pre-D Notes®
database can be exported directly into Autodesk Revit Architecture for incorporation into the detailed design process.
This functionality ensures that the nuances of design requirements captured in the architectural programming process
are communicated to the entire project team.
Pre-D Notes® can also capture the best practices of seasoned building programmers through the use of requirement
templates. These features also work as quality control features that reduces the team’s risk by constantly checking the
design data against the program requirements as well as tracking owner’s changes. Future project teams can then access
historical information from similarly-programmed spaces and reduce significant time in the early stages of the project.
Pre-D Notes® provides a real-time
platform for the entire project team
to collaborate on the verification of
project requirements in a Web-based
format, significantly expediting the
program verification process.

BIM Sustainability
Good sustainable design looks to leverage building location, orientation, and climate to maximize the efficiency of
building systems. The relationships between these systems can be better tuned through whole building analysis
available through BIM. HNTB leverages a team of national sustainability experts blended with in-house technology
knowledge to deliver comprehensive sustainable design services. This allows for real-time visualization of the design,
coupled with a variety of building analytics including: Sound Transmission Class rating (STC), security zones, spatial and
area requirements. Because of this integrated approach, analysis can be derived in significantly reduced time.
HNTB brings a higher level of analysis accuracy and quicker results to help better inform teams about sustainable design.
This aids in reducing risk, compressing schedule and decreasing first costs. Risk is reduced by ensuring compliance with
owner sustainability requirements. Schedules are compressed by making better decisions early in the process and by
capitalizing on a BIM workflow to reuse building geometry in analysis. This not only creates more accurate building
analysis but also vastly reduces the time needed to analyze the building. First costs are reduced by discarding “rules-of-
thumb” in favor of statistical information which can lead to smaller, more efficient mechanical equipment.

HNTB believes that disputes can be avoided or minimized by applying simple, cost effective and meaningful procedures
as a part of the delivery process. HNTB recommends the following as a part of our delivery methodology:
Executive Committee
One of the most effective methods to address disputes is to avoid them in the first place. HNTB has seen firsthand the
direct benefit of establishment of an Executive Committee comprised of key members of the Ownership, Contractor/
CM and Design Teams. This committee can meet as necessary as determined by this group – perhaps as frequently as
monthly during the compressed design and early construction phases, dropping to quarterly as the project settles into a
more routine schedule. This group should be empowered to render meaningful decisions/direction on detailed project
matters before they might otherwise escalate into disputes or claims.
Fairness in Risk Allocation
One of the best ways to minimize disputes is to develop a fair and balanced allocation of risk between the parties to
the contract and to avoid the tendency to shift all or an undue portion of risk to a single party. This includes developing
reasonable contract language that considers risk in relation to reward and to specifically avoid language that targets risk
to one entity.
BIM Implementation Plan
Upon selection, HNTB recommends that the parties meet to establish a detailed BIM Implementation Plan that clearly
outlines the expectations – and content – of what is to be included in the BIM models. Establishing this protocol
early will be a significant deterrent to disputes or claims that may arise. HNTB has made it a point to establish this
implementation plan on all BIM delivery projects regardless of size.
Comprehensive Scope of Work and Schedule Developed with Common Objectives
A detailed scope of work and a detailed schedule are two of the best deterrents to dispute mitigation. HNTB
recommends that the scope of work and schedule prepared as a part of the RFP be reviewed in a “scope/schedule
workshop” with all vested parties to determine a comprehensive understanding of expectations.
