Sanford Fargo Medical Center

Location: Fargo, ND
Owner: Sanford Medical
Client: LeJeune Steel Company & TrueNorth Steel
Contractor: Mortenson Construction

Project Details

Danny’s Construction Company erected nearly 9,000 tons of structural steel at the new Sanford Fargo Medical Center and Central Energy Plant in Fargo, ND. The 11 story, 1 million square foot facility is the largest medical center in North Dakota, servicing North Dakota, South Dakota and Minnesota.

As part of the design, HKS engineering employed the services of SidePlate to assist in the design of the rigid brace frames that were prominent throughout the structure. The SidePlate system is utilized to eliminate CJP welding, subsequently eliminating the need for UT inspections, and reduces the overall tonnage of the project. It is believed that the use of the SidePlate system on this project reduced the total tonnage of the project by nearly 600 tons as well as replaced nearly 1,000 beam and girder[1]  CJP welds with much simpler and less time-consuming fillet welds.

Our Ironworker Local 512C crew members are applauded for having worked through incredibly inclement conditions. We are pleased to have had a successful project with our partners: Lejeune Steel Company, True North Steel, and Mortenson Construction.
