The WE Energies service center is now complete and in full operation. The project consists of the new construction of a service garage for the energy corporation in Monroe, WI to serve the needs of the surrounding rural community.
The building includes a two-bay apparatus service garage with a storage room and area, a training and conference room, offices and open workspace, and a kitchen. The building consists of a structural steel framing with a steel envelope atop a reinforced slab-on-grade foundation with cast-in-place footings and foundation walls. The administrative half of the service garage consists of steel stud framing, with all new MEPF systems. Sitework includes the construction of service and access roads, parking lots, and material storage.
The project was a design-build effort in collaboration with Gries Architectural Group, Inc. The building tapped into city sewer, water, and natural gas and was constructed from various building materials. The building scope also includes an extensive AV/IT service package and security equipment. Due to the locality of the site, the team employed a detailed communication, safety, and procurement plan to overcome the locality.
We would like to thank WEC Energy Group and WE Energies for selecting Greenfire as their construction manager for this important project that further serves the needs of the rural community. The project team includes Curt Begotka, superintendent, and Ron Wiedeman, senior project manager.
