Collaborative Design Group has been involved with nearly every building on the Fort Snelling Historical Site campus within the past decade. CDG has prepared Condition Survey Reports for all of the historic buildings, as well as the Visitors Center.
Collaborative Design Group provided research, specifications, plans, and construction administration for the period-accurate reconstruction of the roofs within the historic fort, including the installation of a lead-coated copper gutter system. The projects have been overseen by the Minnesota Historical Society and State Historic Preservation Office.
CDG has also provided a pre-design study for the rehabilitation of the former Calvary Barracks into the Fort Snelling Museum. The pre-design included a preliminary fit plan for moving the current Visitors Center functions into the museum, cost estimating, and a narrative outlining the needs and opportunities of the project.
