5th Element Construction Project

Read their Letter of Recommendation

Situation
A run-down building with no hope of surviving if left as is.

Remedy
“A VISION” At street level the face of the building was revamped to incorporate more windows without compromising the building’s historic feel. The design of the second story adds character to the building while echoing the style of the neighborhood. A patio overlooks Hennepin Avenue giving Rhymesayers a unique area to entertain their clients.

Situation
Rhymesayers had a building that contained a run-down cramped office and retail space. Half of the building was abandoned.

Remedy
EDS Builders took on the engineering and general contracting and worked with the owner and architect to complete the expansion of the two-story, 1920’s, brick structure located on Hennepin Avenue in Minneapolis. A second floor was added and the existing 2” thick, built-up roof system was removed, while the business remained open to the public at all times.

Situation
The retail space for 5th Element was too small.

Remedy
The size of the retail space was doubled. The lower level was made usable with 3,500 sf of storage space and the office space was increased to ten times the original space.
