Cargill - Excelsior Crossing

Hopkins, Minnesota


July 2008

New Cafeteria
Coffee Shop

Excelsior Crossings campus is home to approximately 1,700 Cargill employees in three buildings. The three phase project included a new corporate employee foodservice facility plus associated catering/special functions. We designed a main kitchen with an adjacent retail food court, and a satellite coffee service area featuring a grab & go operation offering coffee, bakery, made-to-order deli sandwiches, hot entrees, beverages and snacks.

2008 saw the first wave of employees moving into the campus. Construction on the second and third buildings occurred on an accelerated schedule, and were completed in the summer of 2009 and winter of 2010. The project won several awards, including the 2008 award for the best build-to-suit office space of more than 100,000 sq ft, from the MN Chapter of the National Association of Industrial and Office Properties. Excelsior Crossings is the only MNSHARP Construction site to achieve LEED Gold certification.
