H+U served as the Construction Manager for the City of Minnetonka on the Ridgedale Commons and Crane Lake Preserve project. The project transformed a portion of the Ridgedale Mall parking lot into a community gathering space with lush gardens, creative play areas including a water feature, an open lawn and a flexible plaza to host community events.

The City initially bid this project to General Contractors, before hiring H+U Construction to bring costs within budget. H+U managed the work of all the trades, construction documents enforcement, and quality control while working alongside multiple stakeholders and partners. The park is part of a larger long-term vision to transform the Ridgedale area into a mixed-use community with higher-density housing and bike and pedestrian-friendly design.
