Kendall's ACE Hardware, Payne Avenue
New Construction | 2012

Kendall’s Hardware is a 14,000 sf hardware store in Saint Paul that was completed in 2012. This project involved the relocation of an existing hardware store into a new building, accommodating growth of 25%. 

The small, engaged design firm was using the SB 2030 program for the first time. The firm adjusted their design process to accommodate the aggressive energy goals, engaged with Xcel Energy’s Energy Design Assistance program for small buildings, and came up with a design that exceeded their SB 2030 Standard by reducing the window to wall ratio, selecting high-performing windows, designing exterior walls with a high R-value, and using energy recovery ventilation. The owner became completely engaged with the B3/SB 2030 process and has continued to consider energy efficiency in the building’s operations.

This project is the winner of the 2016 Best of SB 2030 Award.
