R&D Systems is a business in Minneapolis which has two divisions; Biotechnology and Hematology. This is a new client for our office and we are excited about our first project with them which we have been working on for the past 6 months or more. R&D owns a building on campus that was being rented out in the past, but is in poor condition and they are having difficulty keeping the spaces full of tenants. To make the building fit into the campus look, R&D has decided to renovate the building, making the exterior similar to other buildings around it, but also renovating the interior on the southern half for the company expansion. This expansion will include labs, offices, lobby, breakroom, and warehouse space. R&D has decided to split the project into two phases. The first phase is called the Core and Shell package; including all work to the exterior shell of the building along with the addition of new mechanical systems and stairs on the roof and interior of the building. The second phase is the interior build-out and was drawn for the Hematology division of the company. These design development level drawings were recently presented and approved by the company which means construction documents for this phase will begin shortly while construction begins for phase one. You will see in the images below, a 3D rendering we put together to compare the current building condition with how it will look once construction is complete to better fit into the R&D campus.
