Completed Projects
Ely City Hall
Ely, Minnesota

The City of Ely has proposed to renovate its historic 1930 Art Deco style City Hall building. Meyer Group was hired by JPJ Engineering of Hibbing, MN to develop Construction Documents for the project. Part of the renovation of the City Hall, located on East Chapman Street, includes an addition to the historic structure that provides an accessible entrance to the building, enclosed stair tower, elevator and Police Department garage. The addition shall complement the Art Deco design, rather than compete with it, by being clad in metal plate wall panels of a contrasting color while still maintaining the scale and proportion of the existing building. The existing interior space of the building was remodeled in order to provide modern amenities, to efficiently house its tenants and to better serve the public. The utmost care shall be taken to preserve and protect all existing woodwork, decorative plaster and historic fixtures and finishes. Additional considerations include: the selection of maintenance free sustainable building materials, new energy efficient mechanical and electrical systems, user comfort and building security.
