Services Provided: Forensic reports, investigative survey reports, destructive testing, site staging and phasing, demolition and deconstruction masonry restoration, HVAC design, programming, process plans implementation, and bid format construction drawings. Special systems design with full time observation and mission critical precautions and emergency response.
The Challenge: The telepresence, sales and conference center required relocation, technology updates and modern design as it was being relocated to the main Minneapolis facility. This project included phases to modernize the elevators and replace the non-functioning escalators with a grand staircase to the second-floor skyway.
The Solution: Create phased construction to allow continued access to adequate elevator banks and skyway while equipment updates and modernization occur. The finishes were chosen to be modern “technological” while respecting the historic art deco portion of the lobby. The theme was continued throughout the 1st Floor Lobby in newer portions of the building and up to the skyway.
