Norman Pointe II

Bloomington, Minnesota

This LEED certified, 10-story, 347,000-sft office building adds premium office space to a high-visibility site in this thriving community. The building is clad with a precast concrete and glass curtain wall façade and features a 5-story-high atrium and elevator tower connection to an adjacent 8-level precast concrete parking structure. Value engineering prior to the start of the design phase determined composite structural steel beams provided the most economical framing solution with conventional cast-in-place concrete foundations. Design of this structure was provided under a design-build arrangement in conjunction with the project steel fabricator, with guaranteed pricing set prior to start of design. Attention to cost control throughout design was a key element to the success of this project. Aggressive coordination with the owner and other members of the design team is critical to allow completion of this project on time and within budget.
