Dear Steven, Don and Members of the Selection Committee, Exciting yet vitally important days lie ahead as you plan for your Peoples Stadium. As you embark on the process to select your design partner, we believe it is crucial that your architect understands the new NFL, how to place a 65,000 to 72,000 seat venue in the heart of a city; and the impacts this building will have on the downtown and throughout the community. Your architecture and planning team also should be great listeners who will respect and trust all the various participants in this monumental undertaking. We believe we are that team. We are immersed in today’s NFL. Our past experience of designing 14 new NFL stadiums (two of which have retractable roofs) and three major NFL expansions has positioned us well to think about the NFL building of the future. We’re also currently working with six NFL teams on master plans to modernize and upgrade their facilities, and over the last two years, we have been meeting and listening to NFL officials as they define their future challenges and opportunities. This understanding has helped us to redefine the paradigm of the NFL experience. We are the world’s leading provider of event planning and management services. With our recent success at the London Olympics, coupled with our 29 consecutive Super Bowls, 6 World Cups, 8 Olympic Games, 6 Final Fours and 5 NHL Winter Classics, we have unmatched and world renowned experience with the most incredible events, allowing us to uniquely understand the design decisions that need to be made in order to host these world-class events. We have helped redefine the urban sports experience in the Twin Cities and we’ve come to know your community. Our portfolio includes award-winning designs for Target Field (Sports Business Journal’s facility of the Year); TCF Bank Stadium (Finance and Commerce’s Magazine Top Project of 2009); and Xcel Energy Center (ESPN the Magazine Best Fan Experience). Each building, in its own unique way, has become iconic and beloved by its fans and each is authentic to its place and time.

We have the strongest Minnesota-based team. Populous has partnered with Hammel, Green and Abrahamson, Inc.; the firm with which we delivered Target Field. As an integrated architecture/engineering firm, HGA is known for designing large, enduring, complex projects. In the Twin Cities, HGA is known for its work with Populous on Target Field, the Minnesota History Center, the Minnesota State Capitol, the Pantages and Orpheum Theaters and the Minnesota Public Radio Headquarters. In addition to HGA, we propose other Minnesota-based and national specialty consultants, including firms that meet Targeted Business Group requirements. We are most excited about this project because it offers us the opportunity to create the New NFL Experience. We believe it is time for a great urban NFL stadium …. a stadium in the city that infuses the community with purple and gold yet creates incredible street use and fan experiences. Our custom process, unmatched expertise, visionary ideas and desire to design a stadium that is a good steward of public funds will deliver you a transformational building of its place and time. Our promise is to deliver the Peoples Stadium you deserve. Thank you for your consideration. We welcome the opportunity to discuss our ideas for your Peoples Stadium. Sincerely,

Dennis R. Wellner, AIA Senior Principal Populous

Freeman Office Building and Laboratory for the Minnesota Departments of Health and Agriculture. • Regional Headquarters for the Federal Bureau of Investigation. • Minnesota History Center. • Minnesota Public Radio Broadcast Center. • Target Field Ballpark for the Minnesota Twins. Among these projects, HGA most recently worked with Populous on Target Field to create a seamless team collaborating with consultants, public agencies, and the Minnesota Twins. HGA, in fact, carried out the first neighborhood Master Plan for the district around Target Field. HGA’s leadership is proposing the same personnel that successfully delivered Target Field. The firm is very familiar with the East Downtown district where the new Minnesota Multipurpose Stadium will be located. HGA designed the East Metrodome LRT Station, adjacent plaza, underground ramp and development study for the district. We believe HGA’s corporate commitment to collaboration, community engagement and in-depth experience designing for the region will lead to another successful project.

HGA has strong working relationships with state, county and municipal officials, with the Metropolitan Council, and with major Twin Cities contractors. HGA’s expertise is complex, fast-track projects—working cooperatively with client and design teams. For example, HGA was part of the multi-firm collaboration that delivered the Mall of America and the $3.1 billion expansion of the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport—enduring and well-attended public venues. HGA enhances Populous’ leadership in sustainable design with 135 sustainable-rated projects including 35 LEED® Gold, 11 LEED® Platinum, four Net Zero, and three Carbon Neutral projects. HGA also designed nine projects that comply with B3 State of Minnesota Sustainable Building Guidelines and a project using the Green Building Initiative’s Green Globe rating system. HGA has designed projects using the City of Minneapolis’ Best Practices for stormwater quantity and quality. The firm also has worked with the Mississippi Watershed Management Organization to improve water quality through specific project improvements. HGA continues to work with the Metropolitan Council in providing public transit solutions to our community. It delivers comprehensive design solutions for improved environmental performance in its Twin Cities’ home. HGA is a leader in BIM (Building Information Modeling) capability for large-scale projects with multiple projects that have been designed using BIM.

Bill Blanski was a valued design colleague and contributor to the design of Target Field with Populous. He worked on the original Master Plan for Target Field and its urban neighborhood. Bill collaborated under the leadership of his Populous design counterparts to create a unique Minnesota expression for Target Field. In 2010, Twins President Dave St. Peter said “I want to give a lot of credit to Bill Blanski’s design role. So much of what made this ballpark reflect the State of Minnesota came from Bill.” He is a highly collaborative designer who works effectively with multiple stakeholder groups. Four years after its completion, Bill is leading design enhancements to Target Field to improve the fan experience with updated, flexible spaces. Bill Blanski has led the design of complex projects with HGA for more than 26 years nationally. His Twin Cities work includes the Minnesota Public Radio Broadcast Center, the Orville L. Freeman Office Building and Laboratory for the Minnesota Departments of Health and Agriculture (a complex, systems-intensive building), and the Medtronic World Headquarters (which features integration of buildings and infrastructure with a beautiful, sustainable landscape). Bill has designed plazas and enduring places of public assembly, including the Weesner Amphitheatre at the Minnesota Zoo, the unbuilt Outdoor Performing Arts Center for the Minnesota Orchestra, and a Town Center Master Plan for Vail, Colorado, that focused on outdoor all-season gathering spaces.

Ed RoEthER consulting After spending 20 years at Populous, Ed Roether formed Ed Roether Consulting LLC to offer consulting services related to the standards applied to the build environment. Over the last 20 years Ed has developed an intimate understanding of these standards that very few people possess. His familiarity with the requirements in the codes and standards for accessibility and life safety, along with construction standards, enable him to provide comprehensive advice throughout the design and construction process continuing on throughout the life of the facility. Few accessibility or life safety consultants have his familiarity with the construction standards and real world experience as a practicing architect and few design/construction consultants have his familiarity with the accessibility and life safety codes and standards.

unitEd spinal association United Spinal Association’s mission is to improve the quality of life of all people living with spinal cord injuries and disorders (SCI/D). United Spinal was founded in 1946 by a determined group of paralyzed WWII veterans in New York City who advocated for greater civil rights and independence for themselves and their fellow veterans. Rejecting the poor treatment they received at their local VA hospital, they decided to form a support group. From these modest beginnings, United Spinal was born. Since then, our core belief has remained unchanged. Despite living with SCI/D, a full, productive, and rewarding life is within the reach of anyone with the strength to believe it and the courage to make it happen.

Today, United Spinal is the largest non-profit organization dedicated to helping people living with SCI/D. We are committed to providing active-lifestyle information, peer support and advocacy that empower individuals to achieve their highest potential in all facets of life

Judd is a recognized authority both locally and nationally for his strong leadership in advocating for technical excellence in the built environment. For over 20 years he has assisted building owners, constructors and design professionals to design, build and maintain the kind of quality construction that will sustain the highest value and integrity in their buildings. His work with the national Board and local president for the Building Enclosure Committee demonstrates his commitment to spreading his commitment to industry leaders on the importance of this applied discipline. He has consulted with numerous industry leaders both public and private on projects of every size, scope and complexity and works to find ways to gain consensus with groups of individuals who often have competing interests. Judd’s commitment to teamwork, creativity and communication consistently result in achieving highly successful solutions and outcomes for his clients and their projects. cuRREnt pRojEcts foR yEaRs 2012-2016 We are able to devote primary time to projects with a longterm commitment because we then schedule around those scheduled time commitments with ongoing projects of short time commitment. We do not foresee any other projects of the size of the Viking Stadium or similarly demanding, longterm projects that would conflict with any of our employees’ time availability. We currently have the same capacity available that we provided on the Target Field ballpark for the Twins, and we can commit to that level of attention in this case.

SRF Consulting Group, Inc. is Minnesota’s premier provider of civil, traffic, water resources, and structural engineering; landscape architecture; and urban design services. Headquartered in Minneapolis, SRF was established in 1961 and employs 250 engineers, planners, and landscape architects who specialize in transportation and infrastructure projects. Over the past 10+ years SRF has developed excellent working relationships with the Minnesota Vikings. They have assisted the Minnesota Vikings in evaluating multiple sites in the metropolitan area (including most recently the TCAAP, Star Tribune and Farmers’ Market sites) for the future stadium in terms of needed transportation system and infrastructure improvements and provided review/recommendations for event traffic at the Metrodome. In addition, SRF has worked with the Minnesota Twins since 2002 on a wide range of projects, including the design of the 5th Street Bridge for LRT station access and reconstruction of 3rd Avenue; traffic, parking, transit, pedestrian and bicycle analyses; development of a Transportation Management Plan; and streetscape policy framework to improve pedestrian movement.

traFFic & pedestrian access planning

SRF also led the design of extensive infrastructure and streetscape improvements for the University of Minnesota’s TCF Bank Stadium completed in 2009. Multiple construction packages were used to create space for the stadium and reconfigure major roadways – most of which are owned/maintained by Hennepin County and/or the City of Minneapolis. SRF designed the plaza encircling the stadium, nine parking lots, two arterial and two local roadways, utilities, traffic signals, and multiple stormwater BMPs for the 75-acre site. The stadium achieved LEED Silver Certification. SRF has worked extensively with and directly for the City of Minneapolis and Hennepin County. They have a comprehensive understanding of agency requirements and standards, which will be a key asset in designing the street infrastructure improvements surrounding the new Vikings stadium. Staff from SRF’s Minneapolis office will work on this project, which is located at One Carlson Parkway, Plymouth, MN 55447

Populous, in collaboration with Peter Eisenman, created an icon in the desert of Arizona. The 65,000-seat multi-purpose facility, home of NFL’s Arizona Cardinals and host to untold shows and exhibits occupies 25 acres and features a moveable stadium field that exposes a 152,000 SF concrete floor with an embedded utility grid that will allow the facility to host virtually any type of event including trade and consumer shows, conventions, concerts, motor sports and rodeos.

The facility also hosted Super Bowl XLII in 2008. Additionally, the stadium’s retractable roof creates a 100,000 SF opening to engage the desert climate. The project boasts not only an operable roof but in a first for North America, a moveable playing field. The field resides outdoors most of the time, rolling into the stadium for NFL and other sporting events on railroad type rails. This allows the grass to have plenty of sunshine and fresh desert air to grow and also allows the building to function as a venue for conventions, exhibitions tradeshows, concerts and other events.

From the day Arrowhead opened in 1972, it was, and is, one of the premier stadiums in the NFL. It set the standard with its modern sight lines and singleness of purpose design, and it gave fans the best experience at all levels and views.

The new Arrowhead preserves the stadium’s revered seating bowl, but forward looking architectural forms and modern materials add meat to the original structure’s concrete bones. The addition adds 500,000 square feet of space for fan amenities and comfort, including expanded, open concourses, increased restrooms and concessions, a fully enclosed club level and a broad array of premium seats. It has set the standard for future NFL Stadium enhancements.

Sun Life Stadium Expansion and Renovation

OrLANdO, FL

2007

When we opened Sun Life Stadium, formerly Dolphin Stadium, in 1987 it was the first building of an entirely new generation of stadiums across the country. It introduced, for the first time, the idea of club seats along with a unique rectilinear geometry that could accommodate both major league football and baseball. It has since witnessed the evolution of a building type that has offered increasing levels of luxury, comfort and amenity.

After nearly 20 years, Sun Life Stadium is once again blazing the path for the industry. It originally debuted in time to host Super Bowl XLI and renovations were completed to host Super Bowl XLIV. The expansion offers a new level of comfort for fans along with a fresh and renewed exterior aesthetic that created a modern image for the building. Implemented as a series of phased expansions throughout the entire site, the expansion triples the floor area along the sides of the building. The sleek and rounded design appears to have docked alongside the existing facility, not unlike the nearby cruise ships that have helped to inspire the design and detailing. Louvered sun control systems, a high tech curtain wall system and a shade canopy provides shade and comfort along with high-end amenities.

Located adjacent to the site of the former Foxborough Stadium, Gillette Stadium presents a distinct New England feel. The design takes advantage of naturally occurring granite outcroppings, letting them define the west concourse and the playing field level. The result is a unique ‘split-level’ stadium. The outcroppings also form the cornerstone of the dramatic north endzone festival plaza. This design-build effort was completed on time and on budget for the New England Patriots to open the 20022003 season. Gillette Stadium is a first-class home for both the New England Patriots and New England Revolution.

The design implemented The Grasspave2 (a grass porous pavement). This installation allows for a natural grass field providing an optimum playing surface with a stormwater filtration/mitigation system and festival grounds for concerts and rodeo events. This palletized material is ideal for football and soccer, while allowing flexibility for rodeos and other events.

Target Field, home to the Minnesota Twins, is a cosmopolitan expression of vibrant people and the great natural beauty of their state. It honors baseball’s great traditions and reflects Minnesota’s dynamic blend of urban sophistication and rugged outdoor vitality. The ballpark design showcases the urban skyline with materials drawn from the state’s granite and limestone cliffs shaped by ice age glaciers. It celebrates the beauty of sunny days and starlit nights, but also shelters the game and fans from unseasonable weather.

The exterior features Minnesota-native limestone and echos the look of natural stone formations with gaps or fissures in the stone massing and ledges. These ledges, or steps, provide distinctive viewing sections that create inimitable fan experiences. The ballpark preserves the state’s wonderful baseball tradition and adds an exciting new dimension to the quality of life. It is an inviting landmark and an intimate home for America’s great pastime. The new ballpark for Minnesota is a defining testament to a team, a state and its people.

Kauffman Stadium has remained one of the nation’s premier Major League Baseball stadiums since its inception in 1973. With the current emphasis on revenue generation, fan comforts and amenities in newer stadiums, extensive improvements to concourses, restrooms, food and retail areas and other program elements were necessary to bring Kauffman up to the standard fans expect in today’s professional market.

Most noticeable is the new Outfield experience which creates an intimate feel in the seating bowl. The new outfield features activities for every family member and creates enhanced revenue generating opportunities and a huge attendance draw for the team. In fact, as of July 2009 when the rest of the league was down 5.9 percent in attendance, Kauffman Stadium reported a 17 percent increase for the year, the second highest attendance in all of MLB. In July 2009, eSPN Magazine ranked Kauffman Stadium’s fan experience #5 out of 122 pro sports venues. It also earned the #42 pick overall.

Located in a setting close to the Anacostia River, on South Capitol Street, initial planning studies for Nationals Park established urban design principles for the ballpark and adjacent planned development. The plan proposed an integration of the various development plans into a cohesive vision for this neighborhood within the city. In contrast to early studies, which focused the seating bowl on views to the river valley, this plan orients the park and the spectator toward the game and views of our capitol.
Today, the ballpark’s amenities offer the grandest experience a baseball fan can expect.

A signature feature of Great American Ball Park is “the gap” - a slice that splits the seating bowl into separate north and west sides. The gap takes advantage of site views, and gives each seating section a distinct feel and character, allowing each fan to experience the game from an entirely different perspective.
The ballpark’s entrance celebrates the reds’ heritage with a limestone bas-relief entitled “The Spirit of Baseball.” The design also pays tribute to fondly-remembered Crosley Field with tributes as direct as the Longines clock and as abstract as a grass-covered slope within the plaza that has the same grade as Crosley’s warning track.

Steel, concrete, drywall, ceiling tiles and flooring materials used in project are all easily recyclable should the project need to be demolished in the future.

TCF Bank Stadium

The new TCF Bank Stadium brought college football back to the University of Minnesota campus for the 2009 football season. Located on campus, the stadium’s design elements help create a uniquely Golden Gopher collegiate football experience.
The opening of the horseshoe-shaped bowl is oriented to the west, capturing incredible views of the university campus and of downtown Minneapolis while letting fans embrace both their school and their city. This open end zone features the ‘Tribal Nations Plaza’ – a place to celebrate the State of Minnesota and the Golden Gophers, Minnesota’s Team. This gathering place is an important focal point on both game days and non-game days. TCF Bank Stadium’s exterior design draws from the historical significance of Memorial Stadium – the Golden Gophers’ on-campus home from 1924 to 1981 – both in form and material. TCF Bank Stadium’s brick façade perimeter wall with arched portals reflects the heritage of ‘The Brick house’ exterior, and a 360-degree colonnade provides a year-round walkway around the stadium. Inside the colonnade, special panels represent each Minnesota county and every Minnesotan’s contributions to the project. Likewise, the space offers educational opportunities to showcase the university and its athletics history, adding to the excitement of Golden Gopher football on campus. This new stadium is the first Leed®Certified collegiate football stadium in the united States.

LOCatiON

WACO, TX

2014

The 45,000-seat stadium will frame the entrance to Waco along Interstate 35 allowing a visual and physical connection to downtown. embracing the historical significance of the Brazos river, the stadium allows for the first time a clear identity for the Baylor campus and positions future development both east and west of the stadium site. Many of the existing game day traditions will be preserved and new traditions will be created as the stadium benefits from an on-campus experience and is broadened to include downtown Waco and the Brazos river. New traditions will include students, alumni and football fans all across Central Texas connecting to the site via bikes, boats, cars and pedestrians. Central to this connection is a sculpted pedestrian bridge.

The stadium’s design is centered around eight principles: the beauty of a spiritual place; student led pageantry; personal and intimate; a generational experience; a foundation of faith; classic traditions; connections; and a commitment to the future. The stadium’s architecture is inspired by the classic Georgian architecture found on campus. A classic organization of the building form is used to inform the design experience by placing the base of the building on a concrete plinth, wrapping the architecture in serrated brick walls and capping it with a luminescent canopy. Tying the elements together is a rhythmic colonnade of white columns. Portals are used to express entries and views to and from campus and downtown Waco. The stadium opens to the south, providing spectacular physical views back to campus as well as a spiritual connection to the original heart of the campus. Balcony portals – the only elements to penetrate the brick wall encompassing the seating bowl and playing field – recall the more intimate spaces found on campus; the balcony portals and open-view concourses provide air flow and views into the stadium.

Programmatically, the stadium will feature 46 suites of various sizes; 1,100 outdoor club seats; 70 loge boxes; and 6,500 priority chairback seats. A shade canopy will provide sun protection for nearly 50 percent of all seats for mid-afternoon games. A variety of club spaces will cater to fans’ needs at various donor levels; many of these spaces are available for year-round use as well. Students will also receive special treatment at the stadium; 3,000 Baylor Line seats are reserved in the first 12 rows from end zone to end zone, and an additional 4,000 student seats will be reserved just behind the Baylor Line. The band will be featured in the north end zone, and the south end zone will offer 2,000 berm seats. The stadium will also feature the latest in technology, including two large video boards in the south end zone; Led ribbon boards and a state-of-the-art sound system. Team stores will be located on the east and west sides of the stadium. When it opens in 2014, the new Baylor Stadium will be an opportunity to transform a football program, a university, a community and the entire central Texas region.

Project Delivery the PoPulous PersPective

Design BuilD MethoD of Project Delivery The design build method of project delivery, from an architectural and engineering design perspective, has not been common. It has been done for only two NFL type facilities; both projects were designed by Populous. For Populous the challenge was to work for the client initially to prepare a design for pricing and after a commitment to the design and the development of a cost guarantee, transition our contract to the builder and deliver technical documents for construction. The project’s needs are met in several ways: 1. The design is developed, thus program, image issues, space development and functional needs are addressed for the client. 2. The costs for the project are guaranteed thus allowing the client cost certainty. 3. The project definition is fixed for the architect and the builder allowing the project to proceed quickly. 4. For the Construction Phase, the architect, engineers and specialty consultants are focused solely on the preparation of technical documents for construction under the direction of the builder thus affording the builder project efficiency of effort to maintain a fast-track building schedule and cost control, thus benefiting the owner, builder and the design team. An additional advantage is the single agreement in place between an owner and a builder. In a typical stadium project under a “fast track” method of project delivery, which is most typical, there exists a contract between the owner and design team and a separate agreement between the owner and the builder. A critical relationship is not defined by an agreement, the relationship is between the design team and the builder. The structure of this type of contractual relationship allows the potential for a very chaotic process to occur if the participants are in disagreement on issues, principally due to the fact that design decisions aren’t made until construction is underway, and sometimes significantly underway. Documents are being developed or changed while construction is moving forward. This makes it difficult to manage cost. This teaming structure for the two NFL projects delivered with this method, the University of Phoenix Stadium project and Gillette Stadium, was extremely efficient. It produced a project that opened on time, was within the established budget, was visually unique, met all program requirements and continually hosts all manner of events.

cM At risk – fAst trAck Project Delivery This method of project delivery has been the most typical and used with success. Twelve of the NFL and multipurpose stadiums we have designed and built used this method. The overall design and construction schedule is equivalent to the design build methods of project delivery. All buildings have opened on the date scheduled. If all parties having input to the project have a common goal the projects have succeeded on all fronts for every participant. For this delivery process, the issues we see that affect time and cost are as follows: 1. The ability to defer design decisions until after construction is underway. Trade contracts are approved and construction starts. Finalizing design decisions, space layouts and program functions during construction can result in costs to the project beyond their value. This can be mitigated by carrying contingencies but there is still a level of uncertainty regarding cost control. 2. Providing a cost guarantee after the start of a significant portion of construction. Construction trade contracts are committed prior to a cost guarantee. This eliminates any ability to use those trades or that portion of the work to manage the budget by examining alternative and less costly options. 3. As with design build, this method of project delivery will benefit by having the builder participate during the development of the design and ultimately providing a cost guarantee.

Our projects are typically delivered using a fast-track design and construction process. We have used the design build process on two of our NFL stadium projects, one with a Stadium Authority and the team as tenant; the other with the NFL Team as client for a privately financed project. We believe this project would be best served by using the design build approach.

APPROACH AND METHODOLOGY

Populous applies its experience gained on hundreds of sport projects over the past 29 years to properly structure a design team and initiate an atmosphere of trust.
Critical initial steps include: • • • • Finalize the fundamental goals for the project. Finalize the building program. Collaborate with participating entities in the project. Commit to the fundamental goals and program by all participants.

QUALITY AND TIMELY PERFORMANCE Too often quality, as it relates to architecture, refers solely to the quality of documents; however it is a much broader issue than just drawings. Project specific quality assurance begins with establishing, understanding and embracing the MSFA’s and the Vikings’ expectations in the areas of team input, design, durability, cost, schedule and documents. In order to have a successful project we need to strike a balance between each of these fundamental aspects. When this balance is achieved the entire project team can advance through each stage of a project’s design and construction. Populous takes great pride in our consistent and proven approach to overall project quality as defined by the owner. DESIGN QUALITY We believe that creating a strong design story, where all stakeholders own the words and image, is what makes for quality design. BUDGET CONTROL Budget is unequivocally one of the highest priorities for any client. To that end, Populous strives to establish reliable, achievable budget goals in the early phases of a project. Our approach is simple – be aware of the cost trends as the design and program is progressing and then quickly adapt as necessary. Dealing with difficult budget decisions and value engineering requires a relationship of trust and flexibility by all project team members in order to succeed. Populous is committed to meeting the stated budget goals and assisting the MSFA and Vikings in making what can be, difficult decisions based on reliable data. Our ability to work with the builder and owner to meet the budget goals is evidenced by projects such as Gillette Stadium, Heinz Field, Reliant Stadium, M&T Bank Stadium, Raymond James Stadium and University of Phoenix Stadium, all of which were completed under the stated budget. SCHEDULE ADHERENCE Schedule adherence is key to the success of every project. Understanding the requirements and desires of the MSFA and the Vikings from the beginning will help in making good decisions early and establish a critical path to follow for the duration of the project. Populous’ process includes working directly with the CM to define, in great detail the content and timing of the numerous construction packages. The activity has given us the enviable record of never missing an opening date for any project in our 29 year history.

PROJECT EXAMPLES We can use a variety of projects to represent our success on this aspect of the project; Gillette Stadium and University of Phoenix Stadium are two. Both projects were delivered on time and under the cost guarantee. As an example of managing change, on the Gillette project concept design stage, we were required to reduce the costs established for the project by 25%. We did so but without reducing any of the revenue potential for the stadium. In addition we were able to adapt to the unusual site and infrastructure conditions that could have delayed the project’s completion. For the University of Phoenix Stadium a multitude of stadium design options were developed and on several sites. Populous’ depth and experience allowed the project to adapt to these significant changes and opened on time. The building was extremely well received and remains the benchmark for multi-purpose, operable roof stadiums. In its first year of operation it hosted two Fiesta Bowls and the first NCAA Championship football game, Super Bowl XLII the Arizona Cardinals season and a Rolling Stones concert in addition to a variety of trade shows. Both Gillette Stadium and University of Phoenix Stadium demonstrate Populous’ experience and commitment to balancing design, schedule and budget to meet our clients’ desired goals.

Approach and Methodology

Follow up steps include: • Finalize design decisions by completion of the Design Development Phase. • Allow the Construction Documents Phase to be solely about preparing documents for construction. • Allow the construction phase to focus on issues related to constructing the project. THE FIRST STEP The first step in organizing and managing the architectural process is to establish and maintain open lines of communication. The ability to frankly and quickly communicate project issues between the various project team members, client, builder and design team is paramount. The next step is to capitalize on this communication system to arrive at a mutual understanding and acceptance of the basic project framework and timetable. Together we will: • Reach consensus that project team members proposed are a good fit. • Reach consensus that the consultants and their staff members are a good fit. • Reach consensus concerning the goals and desired measurements of quality for the project. What are the priorities from a design standpoint, public acceptance, design awards, patron enjoyment, community pride and revenue generation? • Develop a detailed project program that defines the building fundamentals such as retail and entertainment, non game day, alternative uses, finishes, A/V systems, food service, premium seating, scoreboards and offices. • Develop a detailed project budget and discuss any influences that may affect the budget over time. • Develop a detailed design schedule and project schedule. • Lastly and most importantly, develop a process for identifying and managing change. Maintaining adequate and quick changes to schedule, program, design and cost will keep the project on task. A proven approach to achieve the above goals includes the development of a group of key leaders from the owner, team, designers and construction manager. The most desirable is participation by a single individual from each entity empowered to make final decisions. This leadership group would meet monthly in the early stages to set the critical direction of the project. They would be responsible for heading off any disputes early and resolving issues in a very direct and as a final decision point. This activity has proven successful in addressing the atypical situations that always arise in projects of this size and complexity.

PhilosoPhy of sPorts architecture

PoPulouS SInglE-hanDEDly DEfInED thE InDuStry of SPortS arChItECturE.
We were founded in 1983 on the premise of vision and innovation: never before had an architecture firm focused solely on the design of sports facilities. We saw a need and formed a group of designers who were determined to think beyond sight lines and seat counts to completely reinvent the experience of attending a sporting event, all the while creating buildings authentic to their communities. of course, design has always been at the heart of our practice, but we viewed our work as bigger than the buildings themselves and explored how our creations could help shape lasting memories and economic success for players, fans and communities. over the years, our experience in design and special event planning has spanned 1,000 projects in 34 countries – all of which continue to define the experience of modern sport.
• We recreated the modern ballpark experience with Oriole Park at Camden Yards in Baltimore; today it remains one of the most recognizable architectural icons in America. • We introduced an entirely new revenue model, the club seating concept, at Sun Life Stadium in Miami where discerning fans could enjoy the game of football in a unique setting. • At ANZ Stadium in Sydney, we proved sport could be sustainable long before it was the norm. • Our eye for detail with regard to special event planning has helped to turn the NFL Super Bowl into one of the world’s largest events and one of the world’s most respected brands. • And In London this summer, we redefined the legacy role Olympic Games play in their communities by creating a strategic overlay plan and designing the main stadium and more than 100 ancillary venues for the 2012 Summer Games that were designed to embrace the temporary.

Philosophy

Over the years, our experience in design and special event planning has spanned 1,000 projects in 34 countries – all of which continue to define the experience of modern sport.
With an eye toward the future, we are leading research on the way technology can change sport; how social media can change fan interactions; how each individual experiences the stadium differently; and how brands are interwoven along the way. Our unrivaled knowledge, both technical and visionary, is once again helping to set the stage for the next generation of fans. Today, Populous remains the most experienced design practice responsible for creating the most recognized sports stadia and events in the world. We approach design from every angle, setting trends that create lasting social and economic returns and build strong communities. We are the people who create the places where fans unite.

our PeoPle

WE ARE: • Down to earth • Entrepreneurial • Curious • Socially engaged • Interdisciplinary

At the heart of our practice are 313 employees who are all focused on a common goal: creating environments that draw people and communities together for unforgettable experiences. We believe communication is the heart of reaching that goal; creating open, honest and trusting relationships delivers our clients the buildings for which they aspire and dream. We also believe in the power of creativity and original thinking to create places of magic that are authentic to their communities. This philosophy among our entire staff creates buildings that are not only functionally efficient, but more importantly they are places fans embrace. To us, this is the ultimate measure of success.

We use the power of design to transform neighborhoods, revitalize cities, build relationships and connect people to being part of something bigger.

PhilosoPhy for the PeoPles stadium:

Philosophy

It is only in our nature to take this project to soaring heights and to use our experience with design, Minnesota culture and the nfl to our advantage and position this stadium for the best possible future growth. through a highly customized design process, we are going to turn the standard, known nfl experience into a modern, urban and personal experience fitting for the people of Minnesota. our goal is to create a crowd pleaser.

Our first step in the process will be research. We will learn from your fans and the people who will use the building the most through various forms of data collection. Through focus groups, psychographic and quantitative research, we will seek to understand a stadium design that meets their design desires but also operational ones, too. In fact, we have already started this process by using social media to engage with Vikings fans across the region; we desire to capture their passion and excitement in the building design. @vikeologist: being a vikes fan was Passed to me from my father, hoPe to Pass to my son. tradition and Pride. we will never give uP. #skol @Poooocho: being a #vikings fan is watching vikes with my 2 year old and he doesn’t get it but when dad starts cheering so does he #Proudddad @zackqual: bleeding PurPle

We will also study and apply all that we know about the current-state NFL and future-state NFL, as well as sustainability, technology, sponsorship and hosting special events, to design a stadium that will meet needs, both present and future. This will ensure a stadium that can only fit in one place – downtown Minneapolis. The hallmark of our design process is to think beyond design and in addition serve as your business partners and idea facilitators so that when the Peoples Stadium opens, you will literally see your ideas come to life in an immersive stadium experience. Our philosophy of trust-based design will ensure you will have a great experience throughout the design process and an even greater return on your investment when you see the joy on your fans’ faces come opening day.

case study: target field

few people thought the near-fatal, 13-year process to secure funding for a new twins ballpark would result in the masterpiece on twins Way. the battle created heated battles over public financing, and it forged many discussions about the kind of identity Minneapolitans wanted to project. Design iterations came and went with various sites. there was a retractable roof; a view of the river and various locations downtown. the northwest edge of downtown – a worn-down parking lot next to a trash incinerator – was the last place anyone thought a ballpark could be built.

The master planning process for Target Field helped define a site described as leftover urban space with a kaleidoscope of possibilities. Before it was a Major League ballpark, the site was residual urban space – a piece of land time forgot. Wedged into just more than eight acres, and smaller than 95 percent of existing professional ballparks, the site was defined by a labyrinth of city elements: industrial artifacts, high-rise buildings, an interstate highway, viaduct bridges, bypass onramps, sunken creeks, the Skyway system, parking garages, freight train, commuter and light rail lines, bike trails, billboards, overhead electric lines and a waste incinerator plant. The planning goal was to create a dynamic space from the three-dimensional chaos. Site constraints – both the physical building limitations and the size itself – defined the ballpark. The answer to the need for more programmable space was to create pedestrian bridge spaces such as Target Plaza that connected the ballpark with its downtown surroundings. Target Plaza is a year-round, pedestrian-oriented celebration of baseball in Minnesota that serves as a public front door to the ballpark and transitions fans from the grit of downtown to the anticipation of game day. We also coordinated with multiple city, state and government entities to open space for the ballpark, including working with the BNSF Railway to move its rail line 63 feet beyond its existing location. Because the ballpark was designed to be so ingrained into the fabric of downtown Minneapolis, it was only fitting the city’s public transit system be extended to the ballpark’s front doors. This required the design team’s careful coordination with Metro Transit to design modern baseball’s first fully integrated transit stop inside the ballpark’s footprint. In addition to transit, the site also can be accessed by bus, bike trails, walking trails, the city’s skyway system or the nearly 27,000 existing parking spaces within a half-mile of the ballpark.

Nestled snugly on the edge of the Warehouse District, the ballpark’s exterior design is a measured response to its historic brick neighbors. Traditional ballpark vernacular would have blended the ballpark into brick oblivion, yet rather than designing the expected, the design team created a cosmopolitan expression of the state’s natural beauty. Unlike the desolation of 10 years ago, today’s northwestern edge of downtown Minneapolis has a new energy provided by Target Field. It is the muchneeded stitch for a new urban fabric, extending downtown by two city blocks and enhancing the city’s outdoor presence. In its inaugural season, Target Field proved to offer the ultimate userfriendly fan experience. ESPN the Magazine ranked Target Field #1 in stadium experience in all professional sports, eclipsing Green Bay’s Lambeau Field and moving up 113 spots from the Metrodome’s 114th finish out of 122 venues the previous year. Thanks to Target Field, the Minnesota Twins franchise was transformed from a low revenue franchise into one of the game’s most successful business operations. Despite winning five American League Central Division titles in the team’s final eight seasons playing in the Metrodome, the Twins ranked in the bottom half – and often in the bottom quintile – of virtually every MLB revenue measurement including total local revenue, sponsorship, concessions, merchandise sales and private suites. One year after opening, the team was ranked among the top 10 in Major League Baseball in virtually every revenue category, which was instrumental in driving the single-largest increase (40%) in MLB team payroll. The ballpark is an enduring tribute to the way Minnesotans have desired baseball to be played: in the outdoors.

Populous’ BIM strategy aligns itself with current industry practices that focus on a central database of information contained in one building model that can be shared across disciplines for better coordination and collaboration. Populous has adopted a total BIM project delivery commitment since 2009 using tools of the industry (Revit Architecture, NavisWorks, Newforma and E-specs) to coordinate and collaborate effectively with owners consultants, construction managers and subs. This approach allows Populous to efficiently deliver project documentation based on a coordinated building information model from the initial design phase through final documentation and into construction contract administration. Our BIM Execution Plan is based on the AIA e202 protocol. Utilizing and adopting a BIM execution process early in the project’s start allows Populous to align itself with other professions in the industry that are utilizing BIM to effectively design plan, and deliver a coordinated building model. Populous’ projects utilizing a BIM delivery system include several collegiate projects, convention center, arena and sporting facilities.

Proven delivery of recent projects in BIM include Provo, Utah and Los Angeles Convention Centers, Georgia Tech Arena Renovation, University of Arkansas Training Facility, Boise State Training Facility and Football Stadium Expansion and the new Houston Dynamo Stadium. On occasion, we have been part of a larger BIM process. Such was the case on the Yankee Stadium project. At the owner’s request, we advanced the building model beyond what is typically required for our design and documentation purposes. After integrating the work of our MEP and structural consultants, the building model served as the foundation of the contractor’s coordination effort. Through this process a large percentage of the conflicts between the major building systems were able to be resolved virtually before any work was started – providing a benefit not only to the contractor, but also to the owner.

SUSTAINABLE DESIGN

High performance: the athletes, musicians and speakers who are showcased in our buildings strive for it. We do the same with our designs. High performance buildings unify entire communities; they are transformative, inspiring growth and a sense of cultural pride. Thus, the responsibility that comes with planning and designing these civic assets is enormous because the size of the facilities and the anticipated event day impact guarantees that massive amounts of resources, energy and labor will be consumed during the construction and ongoing operation. Yet high performance design is achievable: we have been practicing sustainable architecture for more than 20 years, and through that knowledge, we have learned that achieving LEED Certification has added no more than two percent to the overall construction cost of the project. At Populous, we believe that high performance buildings go beyond considerations for the environment and must address the places, people and experiences that together form the foundation for buildings to be embraced and cherished by their communities. The combination of design, construction and community analysis highlights opportunities unique to each project, including careful consideration of the site selection, user experience, community engagement, operational efficiencies, life cycle costs and legacy impacts.

Populous also places a strong emphasis on keeping its designers apprised of the latest methods in sustainable design. LEED Accreditation and training for our employees has become an important undertaking. With 35 LEED Accredited Professionals, every sports project team has at least one dedicated LEED accredited person to ensure we in incorporate sustainable design elements into every sports project. In addition, whether the goal is to incorporate sustainable design practice into a new or existing facility or to achieve official green certification, Populous has a qualified, knowledgeable team of green design specialists excited about designing a sustainable future. From the initial design concept throughout construction and ongoing operation of the building, our designers take a truly holistic approach to sustainable design. Our team’s expertise includes knowledge of all requirements, the points rating system and the process for managing and achieving each level (Certification, Silver, Gold and Platinum). Over half of our staff project team members are LEED Accredited Professionals. This knowledge, along with our experience on past projects allows us to offer the leadership and expertise vital to the creation of a sustainable project and the experience and wisdom to find the right solutions for your project. The following are some project examples that will demonstrate our knowledge of LEED.

TargeT Field – Minneapolis, Mn (leed silver) Having just completed Nationals Park, the nation’s first LEED Silver professional stadium, Populous challenged itself to create an even more sustainable experience at Target Field. The Populous sustainable design team created an innovative strategy that incorporated first-ever sports use of reclaimed heat from the nearby HERC plant and first-ever green sports sponsorship through Pentair’s sponsorship of the outfield water cisterns. In addition, the project received 36 total points, garnering LEED Silver Certification and two more points than its predecessor sustainable ballpark. In order to achieve this, the ballpark received the following points: • Sustainable sites: 11 out of 14 points (community connectivity, bike storage and reserved parking for fuel-efficient vehicles) • Water efficiency: 3 out of 5 points (30% water use reduction) • Energy and atmosphere: 3 out of 17 points (70% green power) • Materials and resources: 6 out of 13 points (68% of waste diverted and 27% recycled building content) • Indoor environmental quality: 8 out of 15 points (low VOC use) • Innovation and design: 5 out of 5 points (green housekeeping program) Looking to the future, we are collaborating with various consultants and engineers to study how we can create even more efficient sporting venues by conserving energy and materials, recycling materials and creating a more sustainable game-day experience to inspire customers in their everyday lives.

Sustainable Design

While we have achieved what no other firm in our industry has completed by designing 12 LEED Certified sporting and convention venues with 7 more in the works, our innovative efforts in the integration of sustainable design are about more than certification. For Populous, it’s about making responsible economic and environmental decisions throughout design and building operations planning; marrying the notion of function and beauty; and focusing on the future of public spaces.
Populous has created numerous tools and resources to facilitate the integration of sustainability into every project. Our project teams focus on incorporating sustainable design objectives from the initial design concept throughout the entire project. We have a focused in-house Sustainability Resource Group that directs our corporate and project initiatives. This group assists project teams with setting specific project goals, and they continue as a resource throughout the course of the entire project.

TCF Bank sTadiuM – Minneapolis, Mn (leed silver) From day one of TCF Bank Stadium’s project design, Populous integrated its sustainable design strategy with that of the overall design team. key to TCF Bank Stadium becoming the first major college football stadium to achieve LEED Silver Certification was proper site selection and development. In addition, treating stormwater run off was a key concern for the design team. By creating an innovative EPIC system (Environmental Passive Integrated Chamber), a series of interconnected underground reservoirs, Populous created the opportunity to collect and harvest storm water to be used for irrigation. The project garnered 33 total LEED points, earning LEED Silver, through the following: • Sustainable sites: 8 out of 14 points (public transportation access and bike storage) • Water efficiency: 3 out of 5 points (33% water use reduction) • Energy and atmosphere: 4 out of 17 points (saving nearly $100,000 in energy costs annually) • Materials and resources: 6 out of 13 points (97% of construction waste diverted; 22% recycled building content) • Indoor environmental quality: 7 out of 15 points (low VOC use) • Innovation and design: 5 out of 5 points (donation of land to the state for protection of local wildlife; sustainable education stadium graphics)
