Wisconsin Public Service Corporation
Scope: New Construction | Area: 76,000 sq ft | Completion Date: July 2009
In an effort to enhance customer service and response time, Wisconsin Public Service Corporate (WPS) made plans to build a new service center in Rhinelander, Wisconsin—replacing two existing buildings located across town from each other.
Hoffman’s extensive experience in sustainable design and project delivery was a primary reason WPS selected the firm to design the 76,000 square foot facility, which earned LEED® Gold certification from the U.S. Green Building Council. The facility, which contains office space, a vehicle service area and storage, and warehousing space for equipment, allowed WPS to consolidate under one roof tasks previously completed in multiple buildings at different sites.
Additionally, the service center was designed to offer WPS daily operating efficiencies, an outstanding work environment, and long-term operational cost savings.
“It was important that our Rhinelander facility follow United States Green Building Council LEED® guidelines. We felt Hoffman, with their expertise, was the firm that could help us achieve our goals.”
