Our work on this project involved a complete residing of the exterior of the building, a new roof system, and interior modifications. The building had been the office for Minnesota Malting and the city converted it for their use as a city hall. The building houses the police and city administration offices.
The siding on the building had deteriorated to the point that it was no longer serviceable. While we were removing it we discovered some areas where water had been penetrating the wall structure, causing rot and other problems. We corrected these areas and wrapped the building in new water resistant building wrap, followed by steel siding.
The interior of the building was modified to create offices for the police. This work involved making holding areas, investigation rooms, a blood alcohol testing are, and new toilets. We also created a new work areas for motor vehicle registrations, council areas, etc. We installed steel lockers for the police department. The stairway work included railings and balusters with tempered glass panels.
This was a very good adaptive reuse of an existing building.
