RJM Construction to build space for Ascend Learning

MINNEAPOLIS (November 16, 2016)RJM Construction, a Minneapolis-based general contractor, has been selected by Ascend Learning, LLC to build out 20,500 sq. ft. of office space for two of its Minneapolis and St. Paul based businesses, MedHub and FISDAP, within the historic 510 Marquette building in downtown Minneapolis.
