Century City Building 36 Renovation

Milwaukee, WI

Hunzinger Construction Company

The Century City Building 36 project involved the restoration, renovation, and modernization of an existing industrial/manufacturing facility from the historic A.O. Smith/Tower Automotive complex to serve as a new manufacturing and maintenance operations center for Talgo, a Spanish train company. Hunzinger served as the general contractor for the project. Century City is a property located several miles north of Downtown Milwaukee that was acquired by the City of Milwaukee for redevelopment purposes. Building 36 was previously decommissioned and vacated more than five years prior to the commencement of the city’s investigation and restoration efforts. Phase 1 of the project (existing facility selective demolition, restoration, renovation, ad modernization) was successfully completed in 9 weeks time while incorporating the traditional architectural systems and characteristics of an office suite, locker and restroom facilities, and large industrial/manufacturing production area as well as introducing new infrastructure and related process systems throughout the space. Phase 2 included the construction of additional high-bay industrial/manufacturing space and a new west façade for the facility.
