Headquarters Renovation Celebrates Company Legacy

Upon Knutson Construction’s centennial, Knutson worked with HDR to renovate an existing building and create a state-of-the-art office headquarters. Creative concrete formwork and exposed steel construction, aesthetics Knutson Construction use on a regular basis, were implemented in the design. Several conference rooms are linked to a dramatic two-story atrium in the center of the building. A grand multipurpose room flows off of the atrium as well, linking to a large kitchen and entertaining space. Trellis-covered porches connect the conference rooms and the kitchen — providing the ultimate indoor/outdoor experience. Since access to natural light was a significant goal for the client, HDR designed the perimeter offices to have no walls or fully glazed walls, which allows light to reach the center work stations. Small focus rooms were created as well for break out space to hold creative meetings and small group meetings.

Integrated Technology and Flexible Spaces

  • Six conference/meeting rooms and one large multipurpose room that seats 25, fully equipped to meet technological needs.
  • The kitchen area is separated by an overhead door to the multipurpose “Vision” room that can be opened to accommodate a larger group of people when entertaining or hosting events.
  • There is a future “bid room” incorporated into the office space that will allow the estimating teams to connect and collaborate when putting complex estimates together.
  • Ergonomic sit/stand desks with dual adjustable monitor arms allow for flexible work arrangements.
  • The Virtual Design department has a collaboration area in their space with a large flat panel monitor to accommodate working with project teams and subcontractors on integrating models.
