Industrial | HUNZINGER CONSTRUCTION CO. – JOHNSON CONTROLS INC. HEADQUARTERS EXPANSION Sustainable Model W hen you manufacture some of the most widely used mechanical systems for building efficiency, as Johnson Controls Inc. (JCI) does, it only makes sense to showcase these capabilities in your own facilities. When the Glendale, Wis.-based power and mechanical systems manufacturer made it its mission to renovate and expand its corporate headquarters, it wasn’t simply to show off its products – it was about living up to its commitment to being an environmental leader, JCI spokesperson Dennis Kois says. “We are using the whole campus as a showcase, but we wanted to create a campus that would accommodate additional growth and be the highest LEED-rated facility we could create,” Kois adds. In addition to its automotive and battery power business units, JCI operates a building efficiency business unit that specializes in technologies, products and services for indoor environments. This includes HVAC&R equipment and control systems, industrial and commercial refrigeration, and fire and security systems and service for commercial, industrial and residential buildings. The unit exceeded $14 billion in sales in 2008, making the company one of the leading suppliers of efficient mechanical equipment in more than 120 countries. Continued growth has required JCI – a Fortune 100 company – to expand its business to prepare for future growth. In late 2007, the firm hired Brookfield, Wis.-based Hunzinger Construction Co. as the construction manager for a $73 million expansion to its campus. JCI’s 33-acre complex includes the company’s global corporate headquarters; the headquarters for the company’s automotive battery business and a power solutions research center, focused on HUNZINGER HELPED CREATE THE GREENEST HEADQUARTERS CAMPUS IN THE WORLD. BY BROOKE INFUSINO lithium-ion technology for hybrid vehicles. With more than 100 years of experience in commercial contracting and more than 40 LEED-accredited professionals on staff, Hunzinger was the choice for the job. The project involves building or renovating four buildings and constructing a four-level parking structure for 400 vehicles. Two buildings with a combined 134,000 square feet were gutted and renovated for the main corporate headquarters building. A 94,700-square-foot power solutions headquarters and a 29,700-square-foot amenities building that includes a cafeteria, meeting rooms and fitness center were also constructed. All facilities are designed to LEED platinum certification standards. The majority of the overall project is complete, and Hunzinger is wrapping up landscaping and repaving components to an existing parking lot. www.hunzinger.com • Project value: $73 million • Site: Glendale, Wis. • Employees: 1,600 at peak • Scope: Four-building expan sion/renovation Hunzinger Construction Co. »Hunzinger Construction brought its sustainability experience to the Johnson Controls Inc. headquarters project. 160 CONSTRUCTION-TODAY.COM OCTOBER 2009 “Our goal was to create a team and for people to understand , the roles they had to get us to the finish.” –Dan Davies, senior PM
