RJM Construction was hired to convert the former Neiman Marcus space into corporate offices for CenterPoint Energy.
The project scope of the four-story renovation includes exterior improvements, mechanical modernizations and finish upgrades.
The 90,000 sq. ft. finished office includes a customer call center, collaborative meeting spaces, executive offices and administrative space. A striking internal staircase replaced outdated escalators and the contemporary reception area features a natural gas fireplace. Additionally, RJM installed energy efficient exterior windows. The project is currently pending LEED CI Silver certification. The street level will include a Visitor Information Center (VIC) and retail store for Meet Minneapolis, a function of the Convention and Visitors Association.
The project was awarded LEED Silver certification by the US Green Building Council.
