Sanford Vermillion Medical Center Remodel and Addition
Sanford Vermillion Medical Center underwent a three-phase $14.2-million expansion and remodeling project. The project included the addition of a drive-through ambulance bay, pharmacy, and laundry. The emergency department also expanded, and a new area to house outpatient services was constructed. The front entrance, laboratory space, and clinic space were remodeled to meet the current health care trends and needs. Banner provided subconsultant services for the topographic survey, civil/site design, and construction staking for the project. Utility improvements included water distribution, sanitary sewer, and storm sewer improvements including a roof drainage collection system. New parking facilities, ADA-compliant sidewalk and parking improvements, and a new patient drop-off area were also included in this project. Banner also assisted with zoning and easement needs prior to construction with preparation of preliminary and final development plans.View Project

Wildlife Estates Development
Clear Lake, SD
Deuel Area Development, Inc. (DADi) is a volunteer organization of local residents who work to spur economic development in Deuel County. Several years ago, this organization conducted a community assessment that showed Clear Lake was in need of various forms of housing. The development corporation asked Banner to study a potential property to determine its feasibility as a residential development. Upon completion of the study, Banner used our expertise in land development to complete a subdivision layout to optimize the land use and provide residential lots that have all the infrastructure required for new homes. DADi applied for and was a recipient of a USDA Rural Economic Development Loan and Grant (REDLG) funding package that allowed the plan to become a reality. Banner assisted DADi through the zoning process, completed plans and specifications, solicited bids, and provided construction contract administration services. Banner also assisted DADi in developing covenants for their development to ensure new properties maintain property values within the development. In the end, DADi was able to offer 16 lots for sale for both single- and multi-family homes.View Project
Dakota Nature Park
A metaphorphosis from garbage dump to a new park, the Dakota Nature Park is located on a former city landfill site on the southern edge of Brookings city limits. During its time as a landfill, the City planted tree shelterbelts around the perimeter to prevent loose debris blowing from the wind into the surrounding area. The City also mined gravel from the site to construct roads for the current landfill, which is located north of Brookings. These excavated pits quickly filled with water from an underground aquifer. After the site closed, nature reclaimed the area: trees and grasses were re-established and local wildlife returned. Former City Parks & Recreation director Allyn Frerichs and his staff envisioned this site as a nature park.
Big Muddy Workshop, a landscape architectural design firm from Omaha NE, with assistance from Banner completed the master plan to develop parking, trails, shelters, and fishing areas for the 160-acre site. When funding was secured, Banner organized the project into six phases, which allowed construction to be performed at various locations without disturbing the entire site at one time. The phasing also gave the City ample time to observe the various improvements as construction proceeded. The extra time gave the City and Banner's design team a chance to suggest and make improvements as the various projects were designed.
The improvements to the site include two miles of bike/walking trails incorporating recycled materials from existing asphalt and concrete streets, two paved parking lots with storm water detention ponds, picnic and shade structures using natural wood logs and green roofs, ADA accessible fishing docks, a weathered-steel pedestrian bridge, a wood walkway through a wetland area using environmentally-friendly foundation system, and two ADA accessible restroom facilities.View Project
McKeever Vending Site Improvements
McKeever Vending is a full-line vending company that constructed a distribution facility in the Brookings area. Expanding their services, they recently constructed a second building on their site to serve a variety of distribution trucks and to provide some rental opportunities. The site includes a recessed loading bay to accommodate a forklift inside the new facility, two loading bays that serve rear-loading or side-loading trucks, and one loading bay for rear-loading tractor trailers. Banner used truck turning software to help lay out the site and design the loading bays. The water distribution and sanitary collection system was designed with separate services to sections of the building collected to one street connection. This allows rental of the individual sections as the City can meter and bill water separately for each section. The site also includes a storm water detention pond system, control structure, and a parking lot for employees.View Project
