Kraus-Anderson begins construction on Wadena’s new $12 million Maslowski Wellness and Research Center
MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. (October 2013) – Kraus-Anderson
Construction Company (KA), one of the Midwest’s oldest and largest commercial
general contractors and construction managers, has begun construction of the
new $12 million Maslowski Wellness and Research Center. The facility will combine a community center
and swimming pool, both of which were destroyed by the devastating category E4
twister that wiped out 20 city blocks of Wadena, Minn. on June 17, 2010.
52,500-square-foot wellness center will include a gymnasium, indoor swimming
pool, therapy pool, fitness center, racquetball courts and community meeting
spaces. Designed by Minneapolis-based Steve Miller Architects, the
two-story facility is expected
to be completed in the fall of 2014.
Wellness Center is an approach to centralizing and sharing community
recreational resources by replacing the Wadena Community Center and City
Swimming Pool in a single structure that shares an adjacent site to the new Wadena-Deer Creek
Middle/High School, which was also destroyed by the tornado.
Kraus-Anderson rebuilt the school, which
opened September 4, 2012 and houses 800 students in grades 5-12.
