UW-Fox Valley’s new $14 million, 50,699-square-foot James W. Perry Hall (named for the college’s CEO and dean), a Communication Arts Center (CAC), is slated to be one of the first academic buildings in the UW System to earn LEED® Certification. The Menasha, Wis. facility houses a 361-seat academic-grade theater, five classrooms, a 2,000-square-foot art gallery, five offices that include a box office and scene shop office, and an area suitable for outdoor activities.
In June of 2008, Miron Construction set out to expand and renovate their corporate office. The $10 million project added 51,000 square feet of office space, bringing the total size of the facility to 112,000 square feet. The addition, which took approximately 12 months to complete, consisted of two, two-story wings that extend from both the west and east ends of the existing structure. The renovation allows for additional office space, conference rooms and an expansion of the health/fitness center and training center. Complete renovation of the existing facility took approximately three months and encompassed the replacement of all carpeting, reconfiguration of work cubicles and all new interior design.
The new $1.8 million, 9,913-square-foot Anya Marie Jackson Newborn Intensive Care Unit (NICU) is the only NICU in the area to utilize the private-room care model, giving families and their newborns the privacy they need to bond and obtain maximum health. The space includes a family waiting area with a kitchen, bathroom, TV area, play zone and computer area for families to use. The most current technology and state-of-the-art equipment, such as sound monitoring equipment, hands-free nurse call systems, cardiac telemetry monitoring and paperless medical records, are utilized to further facilitate patient care. The high quality indoor healing environment includes special systems that control and monitor sound, light, temperature and humidity.
Walworth County’s original treatment plant began operations in the early 1980s. Its first expansion was constructed in 1996 and increased capacity from 3.6 million gallons per day to 5.75 million gallons. The latest expansion increases capacity at WalCoMet Wastewater Treatment Plant from 5.75 million gallons to 7 million gallons daily. WalCoMet’s service area has grown to serve 10 area communities.
The new Wisconsin Public Service (WPS) Service Center in Rhinelander, an $8.2 million, 76,000-square-foot multi-purpose building combines two cross-town operation facilities for northern Wisconsin operations, providing vehicle storage and maintenance as well as office and warehouse space. The “high-performance, energy-saving, economic building” (WPS Breaks, 2008) will allow WPS to improve both their response time and customer service.
