Wausau’s manufacturing center earns LEED-Silver certification

Wausau Window and Wall Systems’ new manufacturing center was awarded LEED® Silver, established by the U.S. Green Building Council and verified by the Green Building Certification Institute. LEED, an acronym for “Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design,” is the nation’s preeminent program for the design, construction and operation of high-performance green buildings.

The company’s 370,000-square-foot manufacturing center and office building completed construction in September 2008. The building was designed by Somerville, Inc. of Green Bay, Wis., and constructed by Miron Construction Co., Inc. of Neenah, Wis. Located on 51 acres at 7800 International Drive in Wausau, Wis., the facility expands and improves development in this area, while preserving and enhancing the natural environment.

“Building owners, architects and contractors are looking more closely at the manufacturing practices and facilities that produce the materials contributing to their projects’ performance, durability and other green attributes. Increasingly, they are seeking manufacturers who walk the walk,” says Wausau’s president, Rick Marshall. “We continually review our operations for opportunities to increase efficiency, reduce waste and expand upon our existing, green business practices.”
