It was a goal of the community, the local officials, and Kaukauna Utilities to design a facility that encourages a sustainable culture internally and sets a precedent for other municipalities to follow.
Kaukauna Utilities office building awarded LEED™ Gold certification. The project utilized at least 75% recycled and reused content which reduced materials sent to the landfill. Large expanses of windows and roof monitors were incorporated, dramatically increasing natural daylighting into the interior of the building, as well as enhancing the exterior views for staff and visitors. The advanced HVAC system was designed to maintain an ideal and efficient climate year round. Other sustainable elements, include preferred parking for carpooling and shower and changing facilities for bicyclists.
