Mortenson Construction has been selected as the construction manager for the new Minnesota Vikings stadium.

The other finalist was a joint venture of Scottsdale-based Hunt Construction and Minneapolis-based Kraus-Anderson Construction.

Hunt — the nation’s leading sports builder — has led the construction of a dozen NFL stadiums across the country, including the acclaimed Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis.

The Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority announced the selection at a meeting Friday.

Mortenson officials said they agreed to an aggressive price and some “unusual risks” in order to land the contract.

Golden Valley-based Mortenson is the Twin Cities’ largest contractor and has built all of the top local sports facilities, including Target Field, TCF Bank Stadium, Xcel Energy Center and Target Center. It also has worked closely with the Vikings on preliminary planning for the stadium.
