Minneapolis Public Schools

Collaborative Partners:
Mortenson Construction
Urban Works Architecture LLC

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