Turner Construction and its design build partners Highland Associates and Langan Engineering knew that time was of the essence when global biopharmaceutical company Celgene contracted it to design and build the latest addition to its corporate campus in Summit, N.J.

“Celgene is a company that is growing exponentially, and they needed additional office space to support that growth,” Project Executive Jim Folgia says, noting that the Celgene regularly heard from at many new employees each week who needed a desk. “Their need for space was paramount as a result of their growth.”

For a decade, the State Farm Insurance campus in Woodbury, Minn., sat unused and unoccupied in a prime retail corridor of the east Twin Cities metro area. But Kraus-Anderson Construction Co. is now converting the 100-acre property into CityPlace, “a dynamic live/work/play, mixed-use environment,” Project Manager Bob Janssen says. “We have a combination of office, retail and hotels.”

The projects’ developers, Kraus-Anderson Development Co. and Elion Partners, hope to add apartments as well. “[We’ll] get the combination of everything in one area,” he says, noting that the project has been under construction for the past two years.

The rise in projects is a welcome opportunity for growth, but is also putting a strain on the local workforce. Filling the positions needed to support a heavier project load can be especially difficult for subcontractors such as Baker Paint.
