After completing the various stages of planning throughout 2013, it was announced on November 26 that Dane County would be awarding a $20.7 million dollar contract to Miron Construction for the construction of new multi-use pavilions at the Alliant Energy Center. The pavilions, which total 290,000 square feet, will be replacing the nine current agricultural barns. Construction is set to begin after the Midwest Horse Fair in April 2014 with completion in time for the 2014 World Dairy Expo in late September.
The first pavilion is 90,000 square feet, can be heated, and features a mezzanine level and pre-function space, concessions, restrooms, showers, cattle and horse stalls, wash bays, and much more. The second pavilion is 200,000 square feet, has concessions, restrooms, and a milking parlor. These state of the art facilities play a vital role in keeping longtime customers, such as World Dairy Expo and The Midwest Horse Fair, as well as attracting new customers and events to Madison.
A multi-million dollar naming rights deal for the facilities with New Holland Agriculture & Construction, along with other public/private funding partnerships with the State of Wisconsin, World Dairy Expo, the Midwest Horse Fair/Wisconsin Horse Council, and AEC food service provider, Centerplate have helped make the expansion possible.
