Restoring a place of innovation for generations to come

Securing funding through the Higher Education Asset Preservation and Restoration program (HEAPR), The University of Minnesota set out to breathe new life into the historic Mechanical Engineering Building. Staying within budget required meticulous planning, resulting in a three-phase project approach. 

Phase One - Foundation Upgrades 

The project's first phase focused on essential upgrades that formed the foundation for the subsequent renovations. The University prioritized replacing the aging freight elevator, ensuring safe and efficient equipment transportation throughout the building. Simultaneously, restrooms were replaced, bringing them up to modern standards. 

The project also involved the installation of new permanent power and data systems, supporting the building's growing demands for research and classroom activities. By addressing these fundamental needs, the University set the stage for the more extensive, future renovations.
