Kraus-Anderson to manage $12 million addition and renovation project at Bemidji State University
BEMIDJI, Minn. (May 2013) – Kraus-Anderson Construction Company (KA) has been selected as construction manager at risk for a $12 million addition and renovation project at Bemidji State University (BSU).
The project includes the renovation of Memorial and Decker Halls, the demolition of Sanford Hall and an addition to Memorial Hall, which will accommodate the relocation of the College of Business from Decker Hall (located in the residential area of campus), back into the academic heart of the University. Newly renovated Memorial Hall will give the business program the visibility and corporate image it needs to continue its growth.
Student service functions currently in Sanford Hall will be moved to a remodeled Decker Hall, which will bring together student life and student support services into a location which is central to instructional facilities and the residence halls.
Construction is scheduled to start in July of 2014. The architect is LHB Architects.
KA has a long history of construction projects for the university, including a 22,000-square-foot addition and 10,000-square-foot renovation to Sattgast Science Building in 2009; and a 12,250-square-foot classroom and a lab addition to NWTC Center for Allied Health in 2006. The 193,000-square-foot Sanford Center, a municipal venue completed in 2011, serves as home to the BSU hockey team.
