$19.0 M

32,000-square foot addition | 67,302-square foot renovation

Nelson-Rudie was retained by U+B Architectural & Design for mechanical and electrical design services for a $19.0 million building addition and renovation to the Frost Lake Elementary School. The original school was built in 1964 at roughly 28,000 square feet. There were new additions that were added in 1966, 1990 and 2000, which increased the size of the school to 73,415 square feet.

This project includes a 32,000-square foot addition and remodel of 67,302-square feet of existing space. The new addition includes offices, kitchen with a cafeteria expansion, a multipurpose room adjacent to the renovated cafeteria, large media commons with an entry and administration.

This project includes electrical system replacements, electrical services and distribution (as needed), and LED lighting throughout renovation areas. The HVAC involvement includes the replacement of the existing systems, including the building automation system conversion, domestic water piping replacement, replacement of existing unit ventilators and the examination of steam to hot water conversion. Plumbing includes the complete renovation of the existing group restrooms, complete kitchen renovation with kitchen consultants design documents and review of the existing and new roof drainage system to verify that it is code-compliant and that it will meet the City of St. Paul’s guidelines. Technology involvement includes implementation of new audio-visual systems at all learning and collaboration spaces. Work includes a pre-design review of the existing mechanical/electrical systems and developing an infrastructure master plan and schedule for replacement.

Construction is scheduled to be completed summer 2022.
