Project Highlights

The Valspar Applied Science and Technology Center (VAST) project consisted of a 170,640 square foot renovation of the existing 5-story building located on the Valspar Technology Campus. The building restoration process was completed following Minnesota Historical Society structural rehabilitation requirements to preserve the historic integrity of the building.

MCE provided full MEP design services for the Lab Facility which includes dust collection systems/ovens/chemicals/Class 1 Division 1 areas/fume hoods and spray booths. The MEP infrastructure/services were completely re-engineered to provide flexibility to allow future modifications to lab spaces as required.

MCE participated in the Xcel Energy Design Assist program which resulted in a project rebate to the Owner.
