Commercial Office Structure
Project Type: New Construction Office Building; Minneapolis, MN
Client: Advanced Energy Partners, LLC
LHB, Inc. has designed a four-story plus penthouse commercial office structure. The facility demonstrates a commitment to sustainability with a goal of developing, constructing, and showcasing the most feasibly green commercial office complex in the Twin Cities. The project objectives are to achieve LEED-Platinum Core and Shell Certification and to meet or exceed the Minnesota Sustainable Building 2030 targets for energy efficiency. Several additional sustainable concepts are under consideration, including a goal to develop Minneapolis’ first zero energy building, where the building generates as much energy as it consumes. The project team is also planning to explore the installation of an array of photovoltaic panels on top of an adjacent parking ramp.
