The Opus Group® Announces Start of Construction at Shattuck-St. Mary’s School


​MINNEAPOLIS – The Opus Group (Opus) announced today that construction has begun on the renovation and expansion project to create a new facility that will be known as The Inn at Shattuck-St. Mary’s in Faribault, Minnesota. The 18,500-square-foot project will repurpose the historic Phelps Infirmary building into an on-campus inn with a meeting and conference space for the school and community.

Shattuck-St. Mary’s is an Episcopal boarding and day school serving students from around the world. In a particularly fitting partnership, The Inn at Shattuck-St. Mary’s will serve as the diocesan retreat and meeting center for the Episcopal Church in Minnesota.

“We’re excited for the opportunity to work with Shattuck-St. Mary’s School to remodel this historic building to better suit their modern-day needs,” said Craig Larson, regional vice president of Opus Design Build, L.L.C. “Opus has experience working on both new and existing buildings for institutional clients ensuring the completed project has a cohesive look with the surrounding buildings while meeting their needs. We’re pleased to bring our expertise to this project and build this new relationship.”

The project will include a complete remodel of the 147-year-old building and will add 10,200 square feet of new space to the two-story complex. The first floor of the building will include a large meeting room with adjustable partitions, a catering kitchen, bar and lounge area that can be used for meetings and events. The second floor will provide a total of 12 guest suites.

“Renewing our oldest building on campus and giving it new life as both an Episcopal retreat center and The Inn at Shattuck-St. Mary’s brings great pride and joy to our school community,” said Nick Stoneman, president of Shattuck-St. Mary's School. “We are pleased to be working with The Opus Group on this project.”

Opus Design Build, L.L.C. is the general contractor on this project. Construction began in June and completion is scheduled for fall 2014.
