Rochester North Police Station & Service Center

Location:Rochester, MN
Contractor:Kraus-Anderson Construction Co.
Architect/Engineer:BKV Group, Inc.
Owner:City of Rochester

The City of Rochester bought the former Think Bank building in 2016 to accommodate the police department as space grew limited in the downtown Government Center. The goal is to add new space for the police department and move the city’s Development Services department into the North Station. That would include the building safety, community development, and public works agencies for Rochester.

“Co-locating these departments under a single roof allows us to provide residents and developers with the one-stop development services experience they have been seeking,” says Deputy City Administrator Aaron Parrish. “It also positions us to work more collaboratively and intentionally to achieve our vision of becoming America’s most innovative development services team.”

The expansion phase of the project, which will add a police garage and office space, is set to end in late 2020. The Rochester Police Department will then relocate but maintain operations in the downtown Law Enforcement Center. Rochester’s Development Services departments are expected to move to the North Station in early 2020.

Wells erected and produced nearly 500 members of precast concrete for this project.  The 90,000 sq, ft, of precast includes double tees, beam, columns, and wall panels.  The insulated wall panels boast a combination of finishes included polish, acid etch, sandblast and a cast-in limestone, creating a beautiful exterior façade to this addition.

Architectural insulated wall panels 94 26,051 SF
Solid Walls 50 10,147 SF

Double Tees 93 38,304 SF
Columns 26 535 LF
