Construction of the new 46,000 SF National Guard Readiness Center began in the winter of 2021. This 15-acre site will have military vehicle storage, a commercial kitchen, classrooms, and conference space. The highlight of the building is the focus on LEED compliance and energy efficiency from the LED lighting to the geothermal field and heating system.
This extensive renovation included lowering the main floor 2.5 feet to make it street level, lowering the basement 6”, updating finishes, and improving accessibility standards to meet code. The work scope expanded to include replacing a shared wall after the adjacent building was torn down.
Brennan Companies TI
Working with Roehrschmitt Architecture, we worked to design our own office in Bridge Plaza. Working with the curvature and general style of the building, we came up with a design that included bold maroon accents, modern glass walls, polished concrete flooring, and custom logo wallpaper.
CBC Fisher Group TI
Coldwell Banker Commercial Fisher Group moved into Bridge Plaza in December 2020. The tenant improvement project was completed as the shell project was going on. The 3,200 sf space features large windows, glass offices, hallway feature windows, and open ceilings.
This 1,500 SF tenant improvement was build in tandem with the new construction of the Bridge Plaza building in Mankato, MN. Located on the 2nd floor of Bridge Plaza, it features open ceilings, bold blue accents, wooden clouds, and flexible work space.
Widseth Office Remodel – Rochester
Brennan Companies worked as the Construction Manager with architecture and engineering firm Widseth (formerly Widseth Smith Nolting) to remodel a new Rochester location. The firm had acquired another firm and was moving across town to make space for all the staff to work together in the same location.
This project is unique in the fact that the project Owner is the same as the Architect. The project was designed with collaboration in mind as well as to show off the Architect’s skill by adding in bold architectural details and unique features.
The 5 story mixed-use building, developed by Brennan Properties and built by Brennan Construction, is open! Located in the center of Mankato, between Downtown and Old Town, Mankato and North Mankato, this project will be a hub of activity, bridging the gap between various parts of town.
Surface parking, covered parking, 6 luxury apartments on 5th floor, community training room on 2nd floor.
Spaces are available for lease on 1st and 4th floor. Contact CBC Fisher Group for leasing information: 507-625-4715.
Shared Spaces (Mankato Area Foundation)
The Shared Spaces building is a center in downtown Mankato that is home to numerous nonprofit organizations. Brennan Companies was contracted as the Construction Manager at Risk for Mankato Area Foundation to renovate the existing law firm.
This beautiful project was designed with collaboration in mind. There are various offices, conference rooms and work spaces with space for groups to work together. During the project collaboration was important. With an older building, surprises can happen and plans may no longer be accurate. Field measuring were a must. Minor adjustments were made without the need for change orders. This project came in under budget and money was returned to the Owner.
EI Microcircuits’ facility was built from the ground up just outside of town in an area that is now known for large industrial and manufacturing facilities.
The factory portion was designed with efficiency and quality management in mind and therefore had to be built to match those same efficiency and quality standards.
Due to the nature of EI Microcircuits’ work with circuit boards and electronics, precision and security were top priorities on this project. This would be their third manufacturing facility to house their work space as well as front end office space.
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 projected started the wave of commercial development in downtown Mankato.
