The Hormel Institute Celebrates New Expansion


MEP is honored to support The Hormel Institute's commitment to sustainable design solutions and energy initiatives. Congratulations!

The three-story building addition to the existing Hormel Institute Facility consists of 20 state of the art research labs, offices, and support spaces. The third floor houses a new 7,500 SF SPF animal vivarium.

The facility was designed to meet Minnesota’s SB2030 Energy Standards. A variety of energy savings and ventilation methods were incorporated into the HVAC systems. The anticipated EUI is 85 KBTU/SF/YR.
