Fiegen Construction provided construction management services for the construction of this $55 million, 185,000-square-foot addition to the existing Dakota Dome basketball and volleyball arena at the University of South Dakota in Vermillion, South Dakota.
This massive, high-profile facility, which opened ahead of the 2016-17 athletic season, hosts the men's and women's basketball teams, as well as the volleyball team.
The arena houses a main competition court surrounded by 6,000 spectator seats including integrated club space. There are also two full-size practice courts, locker rooms, offices, a film room and meeting rooms. The facility contains a state-of-the-art sports medicine training room and a 7,500-square-foot weight room with all the latest equipment. The training room includes hydro therapy, a biomechanics lab, and a physical therapy and rehabilitation center.
I have been very happy with you and your staff. Great people to work with and I can’t say enough about what you’ve helped us accomplish here on campus.
