Current: Tripling space to help families, individuals in southeast suburbs

A nearly $1 million expansion project for Rosemount Family Resource Center has broken ground, and will bring greater help to people in this southeastern Twin Cities suburb.

Architect Jessica Johnson with CNH Architects said the upgraded, residential-type design blends well with the residential neighborhood. Owned by the City of Rosemount and 360 Communitiesoperated by the nonprofit 360 Communities, the finished facility will triple its previous size of 1,600 square-feet.

A new wainscot of brick will match the existing building, explains Johnson. Also planned are dual-colored siding with white trim and wood brackets inspired by the historic “Arts and Crafts” architecture style. A wood trellis will provide visual interest and emphasize the main entry, according to the architect.

On the inside, Johnson said the design incorporates a classic homelike feel to make clients comfortable. “It will allow 360 Communities to distribute more healthy food, increase the number of programs they can offer and increase their long-term stability work,” she said.

Rosemount Family Resource Center provides guidance to promote healthy, self-directed and supported families, according to its website. It serves as a food shelf, and a “welcoming place for community members to gather, work with volunteers and staff, and plan their individual paths to success.”

The facility is located at 145 Cimarron Avenue West.

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.
