The Design Partnership was commissioned by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources to design an elevator addition and to upgrade facilities to meet current ADA standards.

     Before Construction

Working with the Minnesota Historical Society and the National Park Service, we completed a Historic American Building Survey (HABS), because the elevator altered the exterior appearance of the building.

ADA improvements include an accessible building approach, sanctuary seating, rest rooms, signage, and other support facilities.

In Phase 2, roof replacement was undertaken to improve the energy efficiency of the structure and to restore all original copper roof elements.
