Hoffman Built Clinic Earns LEED® Gold Certification

(Appleton, WI) – Affinity Medical Group’s clinic located in downtown Neenah, Wisconsin, and built by Hoffman Planning, Design & Construction, Inc., has earned LEED® (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Gold certification from the U.S. Green Building Council.

This is the fifth Affinity clinic Hoffman has built in the Fox Valley since 2005 that has earned LEED certification. “All of the previous facilities achieved the Certified level, but the downtown Neenah clinic is the first to earn Gold,” stated Mark Hanson, director of sustainable services with Hoffman. “Affinity has a strong commitment to sustainability and they were extremely focused on raising the standards with their latest clinic. LEED Gold is quite an accomplishment and Hoffman is proud to be an integral member of the Affinity project team.”

The two-story, 31,500 sq. ft. clinic opened in October of 2012 and was built on the site of the former Glatfelter paper mill. “The facility boasts numerous sustainable features focused on providing an exceptional health care environment including outstanding indoor air quality, high-performance electric lighting integrated with daylight and views, thermal comfort, and high levels of energy and water efficiency,” said Terry Ellenbecker, Hoffman’s director of field operations. “During construction, more than 95 percent of construction and demolition debris were kept out of landfills.”

Hoffman has been involved with 19 LEED certified projects, led by Holy Wisdom Monastery, the highest-rated building under LEED-New Construction v2.2 in the United States.

Completing the Hoffman project team for the Neenah clinic are Tom Hoffman (project manager), Dave Dickinson (project superintendent), and Beth Piepkorn (project administrator).

In addition to Hoffman, the Affinity project team that provided integrated project delivery for the clinic includes Flad & Associates as architect with design assistance from Hoffman, Tweet/Garot Mechanical, Inc. for mechanical design and construction, Faith Technologies, Inc. for electrical design and construction, Bassett Mechanical, Inc. for plumbing design and construction, J.F. Ahern for fire protection design and construction and Omni Associates for site engineering. The commissioning agent was XRG Analytics. LEED® certification services were provided by Hoffman.
