Minnesota Insurance Headquarters
A rapidly growing Minnesota Insurance Company
sought out Grand Projects for its Construction expertise..
Grand Projects job was to perform a major
renovation to a newly acquired existing building. The project consisted of
converting a specialized building for a science testing laboratory
facility into 25,000 sq ft of office space.
Grand Projects was brought into the design team
during the project’s infancy to lend our expertise in Commercial
We utilized our experience and the principles of value engineering to
maximize dollars spent and maximize the construction schedule
to minimize waste during the remodel. In lieu of 100% interior demolition,
Grand Projects was able to recommend the re-use of existing walls,
restroom facilities, and electrical systems to save those dollars and
reapply those money’s towards areas with greatest return on investment.
Thus, Grand Projects helped facilitate the maximum value of our client’s
dollar investment into their new corporate headquarters!
