MINNEAPOLIS (Oct. 22, 2014) — RJM Construction, a Minneapolis-based general contractor, recently began work at 505 Nicollet Mall in downtown Minneapolis for CenterPoint Energy. The four-story building was acquired by CenterPoint Energy earlier this year. RJM Construction will completely renovate more than 100,000 sq. ft. of the building to accommodate more than 300 employees. The project will be complete by the end of the first quarter of 2015.
Once renovated, the new office space will include a customer call center, collaborative meeting spaces, and management and administrative space. Features will include a four-story staircase that replaces the escalators, a new street-level vestibule and a reception area with CenterPoint Energy brand messaging and promotions. CenterPoint Energy will also seek LEED Silver certification for the building once it is complete.
The street level will include a Visitor Information Center (VIC) and retail store for Meet Minneapolis, a function of the Convention and Visitors Association. Visitors will be able to access the VIC from the shared vestibule at the corner of Fifth Street and Nicollet Mall.
In addition to the interior work, RJM Construction has been working with CenterPoint Energy to add new energy efficient exterior windows and update the entry on Nicollet Mall. Along with CenterPoint Energy and RJM Construction, project partners include architect HGA.
