Construction to state on eye clinic project

RJM Construction, a St. Louis Park-based general contractor, and North Suburban Eye Specialists have announced they will begin construction of a 32,000 square-foot health care office building in Coon Rapids this month.

A groundbreaking event Oct. 16 will kick off the new building project. It is scheduled to be complete in June 2013.

Located at 3777 Coon Rapids Blvd., North Suburban Eye Specialists will occupy 22,000 square feet; the investment partnership of North Suburban Eye Specialists and United Properties will lease out the remaining space.

The medical group will move from its 13,000 square-foot location across the street on completion of the project.

The building is in one of four areas of Coon Rapids the city has targeted for revitalization and development.

Along with general contractor RJM Construction, North Suburban Eye Specialists and investor United Properties, the project team includes architect Sperides Reiners Architects, Inc. and consulting firm Schlottman & Associates.

RJM Construction and Sperides Reiners Architects began work with North Suburban Eye Specialists in April to collaborate on the plans, budget and project schedule.

The health care building will feature a barreled vault entryway and architectural materials such as metal panels, cultured stone and stucco.

The exterior of the building will be made of pre-cast limestone to complement other nearby medical buildings.

Headquartered in Minneapolis, with offices in Denver, Colo., and Phoenix, Ariz., RJM has more than 100 staff members and an average annual construction volume of $120 million.
