Greiner provided Pre-Construction and Construction services for CommonGrounds’ first location in Minnesota, located in the Downtown skyway at 801 S Marquette. CommonGrounds is a co-working/shared office space with multiple locations all around the United States.

Office amenities include:

  • Cafe areas
  • Private offices
  • Open co-working spaces
  • Private phone booths
  • A living/green wall that adds freshness to the industrial/raw feel
  • Brick walls
  • Concrete/terrazzo flooring
  • Original load-bearing columns

Third-party coordination was important in phase two of construction as demountable wall systems were brought over with installers from Italy. The high occupancy design necessitated a large HVAC zoning system. It was a very intricate process with the coordination of all MEP trades to fit in the plenum spaces.

CommonGrounds noticed the Greiner project teams’ exceptional efficiency and open communication, despite being located around the nation.

This project was delivered by the successful partnership of Robert Dunleavy and Randy Johnson.
