Project Highlights

Overlooking the Mississippi River on West River Road, Coloplast, a Danish medical technology device company, established a new North American headquarters. Sitting on a previously existing brownfield site the iconic building now heralds the revitalization of Minneapolis’ North side. The project included the renovation of an existing manufacturing facility and addition of two new structures to house sales, marketing, research, and product development. These buildings contained administrative spaces along with a cadaver lab and training facilities for doctors.

MCE provided full MEP services on this project, assisting in obtaining LEED Silver certification. This was accomplished through efficient lighting controls including day lighting, underfloor air distribution (UFAD) system providing individual occupant airflow control, efficient energy management systems that are 19% better than the Minnesota Energy Code requirements, and storm water collection and treatment, all within a limited budget. MCE participated in the Xcel Energy Design Assist Program which resulted in a project rebate to the owner.
