Amp House

Revitalized in 2021, the ‘AMP House Offices’ converted a former Minneapolis electrical substation into a vibrant trio of small business offices. The original substation, built in the early 1900’s, is located on Garfield Avenue amidst a dense urban residential neighborhood and was decommissioned in the 1980’s. Vacant since that time, the neighborhood has affectionately called it the ‘Garfield Aquarium’ after installing large fish murals over the industrial windows. The renovation began with opening up the mezzanine floor by demolishing the floor adjacent to the large windows. The interior shell is largely left untouched to retain the history.

Carnegie Art Center Elevator Addition

The Carnegie Art Center is housed in the historic Carnegie Library built in 1902. Due to the age of the building, accessibility was an issue. The Carnegie Art Center wanted to ensure that all patrons could access the building. An elevator was added to the rear of the building as well as accessible parking spots.

By using the Construction Manager at Risk method, Brennan Companies could suggest cost saving opportunities. Some of these cost savings were then utilized to do additional work not in the original scope of work. This additional details included adding window banners for the rear windows and an additional sidewalk that goes between the front entrance and the rear elevator.

Northfield Public Library

Brennan Construction worked as General Contractor in the renewal of an existing library in Northfield, Minnesota.

The new addition and renovation are part of the renewal of the original Carnegie library building. The original building was built in 1910 with an addition built in 1984.

The project was initially slated due to mandatory safety upgrades but grew into a stunning building that features more gathering and programming space, enhanced employee workplaces and is more easily accessible.

“We really feel that this is a good project that takes us into the future,” Northfield Library Director Teresa Jensen.

Landkamer Building

The early stages of the renovation and repurpose of the Landkamer Building required design vision, accurate pricing, attention to detail regarding safe demolition and construction processes, and an awareness of the total project scope and cost.  As tenants began leasing space in the building, subsequent renovation efforts required close communication with existing tenants to minimize disruption.

The development, construction, repurposing, and leasing efforts were successful.  This project started the wave of commercial development in downtown Mankato.

3333 Hennepin – Missing Middle Housing

This urban infill project removed an uninhabitable single-family home and constructed a 3-story, 11-unit multifamily building in its place. The project has 2 towers of apartments connected by open balconies. This provides private entry to each unit and extra outdoor space. The building owner will have an office on the main floor of the project.

The goal of the project was to provide the missing middle housing to meet the needs of affordable, accessible quality housing to residents in the City of Minneapolis. You can read more about the “Missing Middle Vernacular” in Great Lakes By Design’s (Volume 5, issue 4) article that highlights this project.
