Design-build

The project was built by Knutson Construction and designed by Peter Cavaluzzi FAIA of Perkins Eastman. 

Workforce development

Target Field Station had goals related to workforce development and employment. These goals followed the county's Workforce Entry Program that was started in 2008. The project met and exceeded all employment goals. 

The Workforce Entry Program (WEP) was created to encourage labor and industry to participate in meeting the increased demand for skilled trade persons while developing the county’s economic resources by providing unemployed and underemployed individuals the means to earn a better living. The purpose of the program is consistent with Hennepin County’s longstanding support of jobs training programs and job creation efforts without giving any bidders an advantage in the bidding process and without imposing any barriers to potential bidders.

The WEP requires that the successful bidder either hire a specific number (based on the needs of each project) of graduates of local jobs training programs or that it demonstrate that it has made good faith efforts to do so. This is similar to the process that a contractor must comply with in order to satisfy the requirements of Hennepin County’s Small Business Enterprise Program.
 
Under the program, the county contractor hires graduates of approved jobs training programs for their apprenticeship training program. These apprentices gain valuable skills and knowledge while working on county projects. To qualify for a specific job classification, apprentices must not have completed an apprenticeship training course that leads to journeyman status or have been employed as a journeyman.
 
Any questions regarding the WEP should be directed to Hennepin County purchasing and contract services at 612-348-2528.
