Blattner Energy, Inc.


Studio Hive led the planning and design of the interior workplace for the new headquarters of this renewable energy contractor, working in collaboration with base building architect URS and design/builder Knutson Construction. Notably, this building was the second project certified as LEED® Platinum in the state of Minnesota. Studio Hive was subsequently engaged on an expansion that augments Blattner’s conference and training center with a 400-seat multipurpose auditorium, increases the size of their employee fitness and locker facilities, and adds a group fitness studio. With integrated geothermal HVAC system, solar panels on the roof, and a wind turbine on site, the 75,000 SF facility is a reflection of Blattner’s business and brand, the company’s high regard for employees, and their respect for the environment.
