Hunzinger Construction Company

LEED Rating: LEED CI Platinum Hunzinger Construction University (HCU) was founded in 2000 to provide quality continuing education and field training for Hunzinger Construction employees and outside guests. In 2008, due to the growth of HCU and the need to expand Hunzinger Construction Company's yard, warehouse and office space, an adjacent property was purchased to create a stand-alone training facility to host educational workshops and events, and address the needs of our corporate office. After obtaining the first LEED-CI Gold certification in Wisconsin / 12th in the United States for the renovation of Hunzinger Construction's Corporate Headquarters in 2007, Hunzinger made the decision to approach the renovation of the new University building as a LEED-CI Platinum project. The new facility was awarded the first Platinum LEED-CI certification in Wisconsin, 8th in the United States and 9th in the World by the USGBC in March 2008.
