CNH project earns 2021 NAIOP Distinctive Properties Award

CNH Architects, along with Frauenshuh, Inc. and Copeland Building Company, recently earned a NAIOP Distinctive Property Award in the Special Purpose Category for Jardín Spanish Immersion Academy in Apple Valley.

NAIOP, the Commercial Real Estate Development Association announced 2021 award winners in 16 different categories, ranging from hospitality to medical and industrial to multi-family.

Jardín Spanish Immersion Academy in Apple Valley is the eighth location in the franchise that CNH has designed. These designs include brand new facilities, major remodels and additions, and minor remodels. The Apple Valley location, near Cedar Avenue and County Road 42, takes new spin on the Jardín brand’s bright color palette. Along with their signature orange tower, this location used new materials and a gray and black color scheme on the building’s exterior to lend a more modern, sleek look to the building. At just under 13,000 sf, the space accommodates 137 children.

Along with Frauenshuh and Copeland, CNH worked with Tekton Engineers, Rehder & Associates Engineers, and HKGI Landscape Architects on the project.

Burnsville Fire Station No. 1: Coming Soon

CNH’s largest fire station to date, the City of Burnsville’s Fire Station No. 1 is home to a crew of all full-time firefighters and more than 44,000 SF with 10 apparatus bays. Firefighter safety was one of nine top priorities for the station. Multiple contamination zones and a designated de-contamination area will allow firefighters to keep contaminated equipment and clothing in the apparatus bay until decontaminated. Another priority in the design was firefighter mental health. A warning system that slowly ramps up with alert tones and lighting while only alerting responding staff ensures firefighters are not awoken in an abrupt manner. The station includes areas for relaxation with different lighting to promote natural sleep rhythms, as well as a yoga studio and meditation garden. Extensive firefighter training features including Firefighter 1 and advanced training elements are another highlight of the station.
