NECA-IBEW Showcases Code of Excellence for Minnesota Twins Target Field on Electric TV, a Feature of "Industry Today" on

SUGAR LAND, TX--(Marketwire - November 11, 2010) - Researched by Industrial Info Resources (Sugar Land, Texas) -- In a recent interview on Electric TV, Jerry Bell, the president of Twins Sports Incorporated, the parent company of the Minnesota Twins, was interviewed about the construction of the Twins' newly constructed baseball stadium, Target Field, and his interaction with the NECA-IBEW contractors that worked on the project.

The new $440 million ballpark was designed by Populous (Kansas City, Missouri) and built by Mortenson Construction (Minneapolis, Minnesota), which used skilled union labor and crafts to complete the complicated project. According to Mr. Bell, "Craftsmanship in this ballpark is second to none." The electrical system alone required intricate electrical design for the scoreboards and field lighting system. The NECA-IBEW team employed its "code of excellence," where all team members sign up for safety and quality superiority.

Mr. Bell states, "Delivering a big project like this is all about eliminating risk. We will pay a premium to eliminate risk. Getting experienced help like the NECA-IBEW team pays off in the long run."
