Minneapolis mausoleum adds space for above-ground burials
When the original mausoleum at Lakewood Cemetery in Minneapolis neared capacity in 2003, the Lakewood Cemetery Association approved construction of the Lakewood Cemetery Garden Mausoleum. Designed and engineered by HGA with mausoleum consultant Carrier Mausoleums Construction, the 24,500-sf structure houses six crypt rooms, three family crypt rooms, six columbarium rooms, a chapel, reception center, lounge, and kitchen. A rectangular reflecting pool, designed and constructed by Commercial Aquatic Engineering, was added to the mausoleum site. Halvorson Design Partnership provided landscape architect services. M.A. Mortenson Co. served as general contractor.
