University of Minnesota’s Driven to Discover Building at the State Fair

If you’re heading over to “The Great Minnesota Get-Together” be sure to keep your eyes peeled for the new University of Minnesota – Driven to Discover building located north of the Home Improvement building on the fairgrounds.

This recently completed McGough project included a tear-down of an existing 1,440-square foot metal building and rebuild of 2,880-square foot post frame wood construction. The University will use the space to showcase their research projects each year during the State Fair. Highlights include glass and stone main entrance facade, high transom interior, windows, exposed LVL wood structure and modern LED lighting.

Be sure to check it out when visiting the fair this year!
