Minnesota’s Largest Health care system chooses Ryan for new headquarters
Allina Hospitals and Clinics is Minnesota’s largest nonprofit health care delivery system. When Allina was considering a new corporate headquarters to consolidate more than 13 offices throughout Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minnesota, they knew it was going to take the skills of an accomplished construction company.
400,000 square feet of office with unique building challenges in just 12 months
The new Allina corporate headquarters, named Allina Commons, had numerous challenges that required the expertise Ryan has established on other large restoration projects. The new corporate offices are located in an old nine-story, regional warehouse and retail store for Sears that was built in 1928. The building is also on the National Register of Historic Places, so the renovation needed to follow historic preservation guidelines.
Raised floor data center
Allina’s 4,100-square-foot data center is located in the lowest level of the Midtown Exchange Building and is fortified by the surrounding structure. The critical facility operations are inter-connected with Allina’s primary data and disaster recovery centers.
