MINNEAPOLIS (March 16, 2016) — RJM Construction, a Minneapolis-based general contractor, has been selected by the City of St. Louis Park to oversee construction of a new multi-use outdoor recreational facility on the campus of The Rec Center.
Located at 3700 Monterey Drive in St. Louis Park, the project includes an NHL-sized refrigerated outdoor ice rink that will be converted into a covered, turfed field each spring.
Stated in a release posted on the City’s website, the facility will “provide a unique opportunity for a wide range of activities and events and serve as a tremendous community asset.” A groundbreaking event is planned on March 21.
Designed by RSP Architects, the roof structure will be built with glue laminated beams, tensile fabric and steel cabling support. The spectator area will include bleachers and an outdoor plaza with a fire pit. The project also includes team locker rooms and a covered walkway which will lead from the main sidewalk through the plaza area and into the existing Rec Center.
As construction manager for the City of St. Louis Park, RJM has scheduled construction of the facility to be complete in early 2017.
