The new 11-story public service building consolidates employees located at various sites throughout the City of Minneapolis. A driving force for this 382,000SF project was to improve access to services for residents and customers. In conjunction with the existing City Hall, it creates a centralized campus to meet the City’s office space needs downtown. The 10th floor provides employee common spaces, including outdoor spaces and a green roof.
Retained directly by the City, Pie is serving as the Building Enclosure Commissioning Agent (BECxA) on the project. Pie’s initial scope of services includes technical plan and specification reviews, participation in design phase meetings, review and vetting of enclosure sub-contractors, and on-call consultation. As the project progresses, Pie’s responsibilities will include shop drawing/submittal reviews, quality assurance observations and reporting, assistance with applicable LEED documentation, and field performance testing.
