Raising the Roof: Roseville 3075 Long Lake Road
ROSEVILLE, MN A dated warehouse has been transformed and repositioned following comprehensive reconstruction in Roseville, Minnesota, for client Investor's Real Estate Trust (IRET).
Centrally located on an 11.5-acre site with ready access to rail and Highway 35W, The Roseville 3075 Long Lake Road project replaced an outdated industrial warehouse with a new state-of-the-art facility designed by Mohagen Hansen Architectural Group. Demolition included about 200,000 square feet of existing warehouse and construction of a new 203,004-square-foot facility with elevated 32-foot clearance roof, 31 dock doors, and 50-foot grid bays with two drive-ins.
Care was taken to enable the sole existing client, Hood Packaging, to maintain operations and quality standards throughout construction. The new, elevated roof was installed to span over and around Hood Packaging's building, creating a cohesive appearance. The old roof was then removed with protective barriers in place to enable Hood to maintain operations.
The project incorporated a number of sustainability initiatives, including the selection of local materials and contractors. Glass, roofing, precast and EIFS all were locally sourced. The asphalt from the existing parking surface was ground up and recycled. Existing steel from the demolished warehouse was recycled. Concrete slab and footings were ground up on site and reused as base. More than 12,500-tons of concrete and more than 500-tons of steel were recycled from the demolition. Construction also addressed landscaping infrastructure including two retention ponds to address stormwater management goals.
The completed facility provides a clean, contemporary look including prominent glass entries and a spandrel entrance on Hood's entry.
