To date, Joe Blaiser has supervised the construction of the TownPlace Suites in Eagan Minnesota and the large complex of three TownPlace Suites in Saint Louis Park Minnesota, with all three buildings under construction at the same time.

Joe also supervised the construction on the Extended Stay America's in Eagan, Maple Grove, Bloomington and Woodbury Minnesota and Urbandale Iowa.

Joe liked the challenge of building large hotel complexes where “every wall is different, there is so much detail.” There have been many challenges to constructing TowerPlace Suites, including linking the new TownPlace Suites in Eagan Minnesota, to the existing FairField Suites, also owned by Marriott. the two facilities share technology services by linking the mechanical systems underground.

With the onset of bitterly freezing weather, we faced some real challenges at the St. Louis Park MN. job site. The ground froze deep before we could get our underground electrical and mechanical rough-ins installed. We tried to use Temp Heat ground-thaw systems to heat the excavation areas, but we just could not keep ahead of the sub-zero weather. After eliminating conventional methods, Construction Superintendent Joe Blaiser put it this way, "We need to take a risk sometimes." We ether close the job site down for the winter, or build a dome over the site.

It was time to build a dome over the entire TownePlace Suites Building B.

A supplier Joe knew from South Dakota provided the material to build the dome, and in two days, it was up and heated. In three days, the frost that had been 28” deep was out of the ground and we were back working at full speed.

As you can see by the photographs, we installed all the underground work, poured the slab on grade, then laid out and built the walls for all three floors - all under the dome in 60 degree weather. Without the dome none of this work could have been completed. This is an example of the value of a calculated risk.
