For nearly 15 years, Greiner Construction has been a partner with Western National Insurance, providing accurate Pre-Construction and reliable Construction services to their Twin Cities headquarters. So when they purchased a vacant building in Edina to relocate their corporate center employees, we were once again asked to help.

The scope of work included:

  • New mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems
  • A secured lobby/reception area on the first floor
  • Training rooms with operable wall systems that open into the lobby for a large event space
  • Upholstered booth seating
  • Multiple huddle/breakout spaces on each floor
  • A tile clad staircase

Another unique aspect of this transition is that the multi-tenant building was completely gutted to the studs, and modernized to fit Western National Insurance’s growth requirements. This three-story development now accommodates approximately 380 people, has surface parking, and multiple fresh amenities.

Greiner completed the interior renovation on schedule and in only six months.

This project was delivered by the successful partnership of Tony Ghilani and Harry Sonnek.
