Early Collaboration, Preconstruction Services Prove Crucial for Corporate Campus

In the highly-specialized and competitive corporate world, functioning efficiently and seamlessly is important. At the foundation of an efficient and collaborative organization is the space in which a company operates. A Twin Cities-based client needed a high-quality option to consolidate multiple metro offices and more than 1,500 employees into one corporate campus. The space also needed to highlight their company culture, facilitate collaboration and provide an attractive environment for current and potential employees. 

Design-Build Expertise Addresses Challenge

The challenge: convert dated, multitenant office suites and a warehouse into an efficient, cohesive and inviting space. The space also demanded an extra element of utility, as it would house a mail distribution center. Using its integrated design-build process, Opus worked closely with the client during the earliest phases of the project to deliver its vision.

Early collaboration revealed opportunities to reconfigure and reuse space and materials, helping the bottom line and enhancing functionality. During the preconstruction phase, Opus provided real-time construction cost and schedule scenarios, saving money without sacrificing quality. Collaboration at this early stage of the project allowed Opus to establish the schedule – crucial to the project’s success. Opus constructed a new space addressing the unique requirements of a financial services company in only six months.

The 359,000-square-foot renovation at Plymouth Corporate Center provides the space and flexibility the client needed, while gaining the benefits of a prime metro location.
