The city of Saint Louis Park completed a substantial renovation to the first floor of their 50-year old city hall.  The multi-faceted project focused on sustainability while adding a new stone entrance canopy, open lobby, reception area, stairwell improvements, private meeting spaces, public restrooms, and a staff break room.  The project challenged our team, as the City Hall remained open during normal business hours, allowing staff/public to continue to occupy the second and third floors. There were certain restrictions during the day, making our field crews adjust and coordinate schedules on a daily basis. The remodeling of the central stairwell had to be completed during the evening hours, given that it involved the second and third floors. This project involved high-end finishes, including medium density fiberboard, 3D MDF panels, and wood paneling throughout the lobby and corridor. Our team removed and reinstalled hydraulic lines, allowing for the underground plumbing to be installed to serve the new restrooms. This impacted the schedule early on, but LS Black increased quality control efforts and were still able to meet the project completion date.
