The 2010 baseball season for the Minnesota Twins will forever be remembered as the season that outdoor Major League Baseball returned to Minnesota. Mortenson Construction, the general contractor for the new ballpark, called on Staging Concepts to be major player in the completion of the project.
Two years and almost eight months after the groundbreaking for Target Field on August 30th, 2007, the ballpark was unveiled. For their first game in an open-air stadium, the Minnesota Twins took on the Boston Red Sox on April 12, 2010. While in the new ballpark, Twins fans are surrounded by equipment that was designed, manufactured and installed by Staging Concepts, including nearly 40,000 linear feet of aluminum mesh railing and aisle railing throughout all seating areas. Along with a wide variety of stainless steel railing included stainless steel drink surfaces in all suites.
Beyond the railing systems found throughout Target Field, Staging Concepts provided a two-tier 80 aluminum platform bleacher system, complete with VIP drink rails. A state-of-the-art 35 seat-wide operable seating platform was also constructed, which holds 168 seats and acts as a lift-gate, allowing vehicles to enter and exit the playing field through a vomitory.
