Xcel Energy Marshall Operations Center

Minneapolis, Minnesota

At A Glance

The site design of this new facility is focused on delivering sustainable landscape solutions which focus on the surrounding site context, human health and well-being, water, vegetation, and education.

Surrounding the site are several prairie habitats, scattered stands of woods, and the Mississippi River, which acts as the key component to the Mississippi Flyway Bird Migration Corridor. To connect and enhance these existing habitats, the vegetation treatments proposed for this project include the creation of pollinator and wildlife habitats through the use of native prairie, tree, and shrub plantings. A variety of stormwater facilities are proposed for the site and all of them were purposefully placed along the public edges of the site. The facilities provide a multi-stage stormwater treatment process, which highlights the importance of stormwater in our landscape.

Fortune 100 Courtyard

Minnetonka, Minnesota

At A Glance

This new courtyard space was designed to capture and tell the agricultural story of this Fortune 100 Company. New seating areas with decorative paving patters, pergola structure, and landscape beds all take on the forms and geometry of our agricultural landscape. The importance of stormwater in the landscape was another aspect of the design. Stormwater runoff is captured from the roof as it spills into decorative stone basins which are then directed to this central feature. This decorative basin acts as a focal point and encourages the users to closely interact with the treatment of this critical resource.

A-Mill Artist Lofts

Minneapolis, Minnesota

A-Mill Artist Lofts

At A Glance

Loucks collaborated with project partners and stakeholders on a $156 million renovation effort to successfully preserve the historic Pillsbury A-Mill site and transform the space into affordable housing for artists. Many of the building’s original features remain intact, including the original heavy timber and iron frame, Platteville limestone foundation, massive white grain silos, Warehouse No. 2, and the Red Clay Tile elevator with its landmark “Pillsbury’s Best Flour” neon sign. Loucks laser scanned the interior and exterior of the building, as well as the historic hydropower tunnels, which were reconditioned and reused to provide seventy percent of the buildings power needs. Loucks also utilized laser scanning to measure an unearthed historic rail transfer table and showcase the structure in a sunken garden area with an overhead catwalk.

Humboldt High School

Saint Paul, Minnesota

At A Glance

Loucks provided civil engineering design for the multi-phased renovation and addition project at Humboldt High School. The project included a relocated main entry plaza with a reconstructed parking lot, including new accessible parking stalls and routes. The five foot grade separation between the parking lot and entry door made creation of the new accessible route a challenge, which required creative use of retaining walls and stairs to provide appropriate access.
