Mortenson was the developer and design-builder for the Radisson Blu Mall of America. The Mall of America is the largest shopping center in the United States, with 40 million visitors annually. The hotel is directly connected via skyway to the Mall of America, is located adjacent to the Mall's light rail transit station, and is two miles from the Minneapolis-St. Paul International airport. The two-acre hotel site was sized to encompass the hotel's building footprint. As such, there was virtually no construction staging area to construct the 501-room facility. The integrated project team devised a just-in-time inventory management system to allow supplies to be delivered in a manner that dealt with the site constraints with no impact to the project schedule.
