Greiner was hired by PriceWaterhouseCoopers (“PwC”) to renovate floors 28, 33-36 of the newly renamed PwC Plaza in downtown Minneapolis.

PriceWaterhouseCoopers goal was to create an atmosphere where employees can collaborate, bond and have fun while at work. Greiner renovated the vacant space into a vibrant, new workspace. The scope of work included: multiple roof deck patios, a putting green, open office areas, three new stairwells to connect the floors, training rooms with state-of-the-art technology, multiple interactive cafes, luxury reception with wood accent wall and updated elevator lobbies.

The roof deck patios had a low pounds/square foot rating, therefore, 8’ x 24’ structural steel beams were added and 4’ x 8’ concrete pavers were placed on top of the beams for the gathering areas.

A challenging aspect of this project was the limited access to the top three levels of the building. Materials were brought up through the dock elevators to the 33rd floor and they transferred all of the materials to the cab elevator that took them between floors 34, 35 and 36.
In addition, new mechanical, electrical and plumbing was installed throughout the five-story renovation.

Greiner completed the renovation in just four months.
