Corporate Campus

Eden Prairie, Minnesota

Overview

This new office campus represents the multi-phased development of a complex site and the making of a collaborative, connected and flexible environment that brings staff together from multiple sites to a single integrated campus.

HGA's role in design leadership extended from the initial site Master Planning concepts to project occupancy including supporting the client's entitlements process, identifying and satisfying performance metrics for campus capacity and cost per seat and the phased design and construction of the project within budget. HGA utilized lean design strategies linked with groundbreaking. Design For Six Sigma protocols through an integrated multi-disciplinary team. This was accomplished by working hand in-hand with the client's real estate group, the users and the contractor to achieve every goal that the client established. The first phase of this 1.3 million SF, 7,000 seat campus included two eight-story buildings totaling 500,000 SF and a 2,650 stall parking structure.

The second phase included a 15-story 500,000 SF tower and another 2,650 stall parking structure. The design integrates a finely tuned building envelope with a wetland-rich natural site resulting in a daylit, flexible work environment that supports the client's evolving workplace strategies. The building's steel structure is enclosed with stone-clad precast concrete wall panels and curtain wall. The first floor "Main Street" consists of a secure Lobby, full-service WorkCafe, Wellness Center, Fitness Center, Coffee Shop, Convenience Store and Conference Center that brings all employees together. A Customer Innovation Center immerses potential customers, visitors and dignitaries in the company's capabilities.

This campus is the third in a series of HGA-designed new corporate office projects in the Minneapolis area for this national client.
