Denny Sanford PREMIER Center


Stockwell Engineers contracted with Sink Combs Dethlefs architects on a design build effort for the construction of the Denny Sanford Premier Center, a 114,350sf multi-purpose events center for the City of Sioux Falls. This new multi-purpose facility was constructed and connected to the SW end of the existing Sioux Falls Convention Center.

We assisted in the geometrical layout of the proposed parking lots surrounding the new Events Center to provide the most efficient layout possible to facilitate traffic flow and maximize parking numbers. In addition, we provided design services for site grading, utility layout and design, pavements design, landscaping and erosion control design. Utility design included water main looping for domestic and fire protection services, the extension of an existing sanitary sewer system, and storm sewer to facilitate site drainage.

In addition to site master planning, we provided hardscape and landscape design to enhance the outdoor spaces surrounding the Events Center.  Design for the hardscape areas focused on using elements to create a hierarchy of spaces leading up to the building entrances.  The landscape centers on a prairie-style theme and plants that are conducive to South Dakota’s native habitat.  The BMP area highlights this native habitat through multiple native plants, trees, and quartzite outcroppings.  This highly visible area highlights one of the sustainable features of the LEED project as it filters and slows-down the stormwater runoff received from the building and surrounding parking lots.
