McGough Construction

From Trucking Terminal to Flexible Office

McGough Construction has served the Twin Cities and Upper Midwest with their construction expertise for more than 60 years. Having outgrown their current headquarters in St. Paul, Minnesota, they expanded into a nearby former trucking terminal, transforming an industrial building into an open, collaborative workplace that will propel McGough forward as a construction industry leader for another 60 years.

The 55,000 square-foot adaptive reuse and renovation consists of demolition of the east and west portions of a trucking terminal and renovation of the central truck garage. The garage’s bowstring truss roof was structurally reinforced and walnut-blasted to remove years of diesel build-up; restoring the roof to its original raw elegance. A glassy entry lobby featuring an elliptical cast-in-place concrete staircase links a new brick-clad office addition to the renovated trucking terminal.

Flexible workstations, huddle areas, break stations,and glass conference rooms are arranged under the truss roof—creating an exciting new workplace that aesthetically reflects McGough’s connection to the construction industry.
