Basilica of St. Josaphat

Milwaukee, WI

Hunzinger Construction Company

Hunzinger was hired as the General Contractor for the Basilica of St. Josaphat Air Conditioning project in Downtown Milwaukee. The iconic Milwaukee building added air conditioning to not only create a comfortable environment for patrons, but also to protect the church's unique and historically rich artwork from Milwaukee's unusually hot summer days. The project included extensive duct work and chilled water piping, and an air displacement strategy was employed to cool the main seating area in the Basilica. All of the work completed was within strict adherence to the Basilica's architectural integrity and of the latest technology towards sustainable, energy efficient features.
