CNH history: Through the years, map illustrates CNH projects’ reach

“It’s a benefit to our clients that have regional businesses that we regularly work across the broader upper Midwest,” Quinn Hutson, Principal, CNH Architects

With individuals licensed in nine states, CNH Architects has offered its services across a substantial swath of the Midwest, as well as in Colorado and South Carolina.

With that reach, still more than 80 percent of its work impacts the building landscape of Minnesota.

“We are not strictly a metro architectural firm, or even just Minnesota,” said CNH Principal Quinn Hutson.

with the greatest density of projects, with a wide band encompassing Interstate 94 from the Fargo, N.D. area southeast to the Twin Cities. From there, it balloons out into western Wisconsin and southeast Minnesota.

“There’s a focus in the metro and another grouping around the Alexandria area,” said Hutson. The closeness to major highways is more based on population and density of business, he explains.

The second shade of dark blue represents additional projects that are less densely distributed. It covers most of Minnesota, much of Iowa and bellies out further into western Wisconsin, Missouri and North Dakota.

Much of the firm’s work has resulted from repeat and referral business, which can lend itself to higher job concentrations in particular areas.

“It’s a benefit to our clients that have regional businesses that we regularly work across the broader upper Midwest,” said Hutson.

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.
