Minneapolis Public Schools

The Minneapolis Public School district sought a flexible, modern headquarters, but also one that wasn’t too fancy for the tough economic times.

Mortenson Construction selected Empirehouse, Inc. as the glazing contractor to provide over $1 million of curtainwall, windows, storefront, and entrances for the Minneapolis Public School Headquarters project designed by UrbanWorks Architecture LLC. A design which maximizes natural lighting.

As a Certified DBE women-owned business, Empirehouse was proud to be one of the women-owned businesses participating on the Minneapolis Public Schools building project. We strive to have women and minorities on all of our job sites. On this project, we greatly exceeded the 13% minority and 7% female work force requirements.
