On September 17, 2016, volunteers from Olympic Companies joined Knutson Contruction and Hearts & Hammers to help renovate a house in South Minneapolis. The mission of Hearts & Hammers is to help homeowners with limited physical abilities that lack the financial means to make needed exterior repairs and improvements to their homes. Olympic employees and their families worked together painting, repairing and landscaping last weekend to restore one such home with a fresh look. Checkout the photos from the event, including the before and after photo, here:
The new 1 million square foot facility will bring level 1 trauma services to the region and is located on 109-acre site that was chosen for accessibility. Designed in a timeless, collegiate gothic architectural style, the 11-story, 384-bed medical center will incorporate LEED standards and has four hospital towers that enables all patient rooms to have large windows with unobstructed views.
After the recent recession hampered many Minnesota cities and businesses, Olympic Companies is delighted to play a significant role in the recovery process. In what the Star Tribune describes as “a sign of Eagan’s resiliency”, Olympic has joined with Ryan Companies to develop what might become the largest Outlet Mall in the state.
Olympic is in the final stages of completing the 34 Million dollar Historic renovation of the Paramount Theatre in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. Our scope of work includes significant ornamental plaster and paint restoration of the theatre that was severely flood damaged in 2008.
Olympic has been awarded the contract for Phase 1 of the Minnesota Zoo's "Heart of the Zoo" expansion project. This is a multi phased project that is intended to elevate the MN Zoo to World Class Status. Designed by HGA Architects, Phase 1 includes the Cargill Environmental Education Center with new education space and headquarters for a new volunteer area (the MN Zoo has approximately 1,000 volunteers!)
Olympic is currently working full speed on "Target Field" - the new Minnesota Twins Ballpark. Our work began on the project July 21st, 2008 and we continue working our way towards completion for opening day and the first pitch in the Spring of 2010!
When Construction began on the $90 million dollar University Club Tower on the Lakefront in Downtown Milwaukee, nobody could have imagined the complexity and intricacy of the project.
Drama fuels life, literature and great buildings; there is no place for it in construction. When McGough Construction contracted Olympic Companies for Minneapolis' famed Guthrie Theater rebuild, there were 100s of changes ahead, but no drama.
