EVS Awarded Vikings Stadium Project!
At the Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority (MSFA) meeting, it was announced that EVS was selected by the architect, HKS Sports & Entertainment to be the Civil Engineering sub-consultant.
EVS’ unique approach of several small and minority/women-owned businesses teaming together was successful as our team was able to leverage the strengths of each team member. This team was purpose-built for this project. Between the eight firms on the team, we have had significant design responsibilities on nearly every major project in the Twin Cities including the TCF Bank Gophers Football Stadium, Target Field, 35W Bridge Reconstruction, and Central Corridor LRT.
The team is led by EVS and includes seven sub-consultants; MFRA of Plymouth; Pierce Pini of Blaine; HTPO of Eden Prairie; Greenway Consulting of St. Paul; HZ United of Plymouth; and Progressive Consulting Engineers of Minneapolis. One large firm, SEH of Minnetonka was included on the team to provide quality control and traffic engineering services.

With 100% of the work being performed locally by Minnesota Businesses and with over 90% minority/women owned business participation, EVS is proud to lead this highly qualified team on this momentous project.
