Alerus Center



The Conference Center Addition and Suite Level Window project consisted of a new approximately 3,700 square foot glazed conference center lobby added to the east side of the Alerus Center arena. Major items of work included demolition of existing exterior wall, new all glass walls and vestibules; tie-ins to existing building systems as well as exterior signage. A new section of windows along the east corridor of the suite level of the building are also included in this contract.

Other projects included the Club Renovations and Radio Room, Escalator Addition, as well as other miscellaneous remodel projects.

The Synthetic Turf Conversion System project occurred within the existing Alerus Center Facility and consisted of the removal and replacement of the existing synthetic turf, the existing roll-up machinery and the existing concrete pit removal and reinstallation of the steel framed pit lid, improvements to the electrical power that services the roll-up machinery within the pit, and polished concrete finishing. Shoring and excavation support adjacent to a pair of pile groups and piles caps was also required. There was limited use of the site for staging and storing as the owner maintained their operations during the project which was located within the main seating bowl and large event area.

The new conversion system enables the Alerus center staff to install or remove the complete field within 2 hours, utilizing 6 people or less on a weekly basis during peak seasons.
