JE Dunn

The executives of this national construction company made a bold move in relocating their offices from a suburban neighborhood to an emerging warehouse district in Minneapolis.  Packaged with the move downtown, employees gained a vibrant neighborhood and a shift in the look, feel, and function of their office environment. Looking for more energy, more collaboration, and an opportunity to strengthen their brand, the new 21,000 SF office is home to a greatly expanded multipurpose break/recreation/meeting venue, integrated plan review and meeting areas, and a welcome infusion of daylight. Within the suite, design details and materials speak to JE Dunn’s core business of construction: concrete, steel door pulls and display rails, galvanized steel signage, COR-TEN steel paneling, a poured concrete reception desk, rough sawn wood flooring, and a mix of accent lighting all contribute to unique character of the space. Blue and orange pops of color, drawn from JE Dunn’s corporate brand standards, enliven an otherwise neutral palette. The result is a space that is a dynamic expression of the company’s past and its vision for the future.
