Neenah, Wis. – Miron Construction Co., Inc. was recently awarded three 2011 BUILD Wisconsin Awards, presented by the Associated General Contractors (AGC) of Wisconsin. Miron received awards in the following categories:
- “Design-Build – New Construction” for Orthopedics & Sports Institute of the Fox Valley ‘Recovery Inn’ (Appleton, WI)
- “Design-Build – Renovation” for Lake Mills Middle School Addition & Remodeling (Lake Mills, WI)
- “Municipal Utility/Underground” – Renovation for Wisconsin Rapids Wastewater Treatment Facility Modifications (Wisconsin Rapids, WI)
Award winners were selected based on sustainable practices, unusual design and craftsmanship, innovation in construction techniques or materials, meeting difficult challenges and client satisfaction.
The 14,750-square-foot ‘Recovery Inn’ is an addition to the Orthopedic & Sports Institute Ambulatory Surgery Center. The space, designed and constructed to provide extended-stay healing and care for individuals who have undergone full joint replacement surgery, resembles an upscale hotel with twelve patient recovery suites. The suites include amenities like 42” plasma TVs, wireless internet access, and made-to-order meals. The soothing finishes and comfortable surroundings help patients feel like they are on a retreat rather than in a hospital, promoting faster recovery and a better patient experience.
The project team working on the Lake Mills Middle School Addition & Remodeling project sought to increase teacher interaction, create unique learning spaces, improve accessibility, increase connection to the neighborhood, be cost-conscious, replace outdated systems and integrate sustainability into the new and renovated spaces. The school district desired a revitalized home, one that was bright, naturally day lit, high performing and colorful, to serve the mission of their district. The 59,865-square-foot addition was built and the existing 36,632 square feet were renovated into a 98,527-square-foot, multi-level, green school with final costs coming in $700,000 below the approved budget.
The modifications made to the Wisconsin Rapids Wastewater Treatment Facility were completed in order to accommodate an expanding region as well as the city’s largest company, Ocean Spray (an agricultural cooperative of growers of cranberries and grapefruit), and their growing operations. The project included a dozen buildings which were either built new, expanded or remodeled.
