  • Rochester Office Relocates

    June 21, 2019 – In February, our Rochester office relocated to 206 South Broadway, Suite 300, in the heart of downtown Rochester. To formally mark the event, Managing Principal Al Hiniker and staff of our Rochester office, Principals Jason Pederson and Brion Szwed from our Minneapolis office, and 12 ambassadors from the Rochester Area Chamber of Commerce joined in a celebratory ribbon cutting ceremony on June 18. Because MBJ has been a frequent provider for projects at Mayo Clinic, our new location situates us to better serve Mayo, as well as our other clients working on Destination Medical Center (DMC) projects. One of those projects is the Biosciences Building at Discovery Square, which will open this year.
