O'Keefe Elevator Company Headquarters

Lund-Ross completed the historic restoration of the O’Keefe Elevator Company Headquarters in downtown Omaha. The 77,000-square-foot warehouse was originally constructed in 1920.

Lund-Ross renovated the interior of the structure to house new offices, conference rooms, a training area, workout facility, kitchen, and outdoor roof deck. A combination of metals, glass, and concrete interiors were used to create a modern atmosphere. During construction, sections of floors were removed and replaced with the building’s current centerpiece, a large steel and wood staircase backed by a metal wall bearing the O’Keefe Elevator Company logo.

The building’s heating and cooling systems and electrical infrastructure were entirely replaced, and large amounts of conduit and cable tray were run to house a state-of-the-art data integration system. An exterior ramp was excavated to allow for traffic into the underground parking level.

Lund-Ross completed the historic renovation of the O’Keefe Elevator Company Headquarters on time and within budget. The project won multiple awards, including a 2003 Excellence in Construction Award from Associated Builders & Contractors. Contract Magazine honored the O’Keefe Elevator Company Headquarters with an Interiors Award in 2003.
