NFL Minnesota Vikings celebrate official ribbon cutting for TCO Performance Center and Headquarters
After 18 months of construction, 10 months of design, many gallons of coffee and flights to Minneapolis, Crawford Architects recently celebrated the ribbon cutting for the NFL Minnesota Vikings’ TCO Performance Center and Headquarters in Eagan, Minnesota.
Although the Vikings moved into their 277,000 square-foot facility – which sets the new standard for elite professional training, nutrition, injury prevention, care and staff amenities – in early March, the official ribbon cutting ceremony took place last month.
Crawford Architects pushes the bounds of what is standard design practice to help deliver the facilities that the client deserves while staying within budget.
Comments from the Vikings’ ownership team, the NFL Commissioner, coaching and training staff and the local community have been positive and shows that our design sets the tone for the next generation of training facilities.
Owner/Vice Chairman, Lenny Wilf, said:
Besides playing football games, one of the Vikings primary goals is to engage and to impact the community. TCO Performance Center is designed to be both accessible and impactful for the community, as much as possible.
Roger Goodell, NFL Commissioner, said:
It’s a thrill to be here, and I congratulate everyone for this great success, this great vision.
Vikings COO, Kevin Warren, said:
To see this come to reality, from the groundbreaking in August of 2016, is truly a magical day.
TCO CEO, Troy Simonsson, said:
It’s been very impressive to watch the TCO Performance Center come to life. I don’t think there is any question that the vision the Minnesota Vikings and the facilities that have been established here are creating a new model [for the] future of the NFL.
