          INTRODUCTION

          Hunzinger Construction University (HCU) was founded in 2000 to provide quality continuing education and field training for Hunzinger Construction employees and outside guests. In August 2008, Hunzinger Construction University and its leaders were awarded the Green Educator of the Year Award from Wisconsin Builder Magazine.

          The University organizes over 70 continuing education opportunities per year and continues to expand its offerings. Classes offered cover topics such as sustainability, green building and the LEED ® Rating System, safety, business acumen, construction materials and new products, design and construction methods, health and wellness, crisis management, first-aid and CPR, cooperation and conflict management, self improvement, financial management, business writing and presentation skills, time management, situational leadership, jobsite productivity and delivering persuasive presentations.

          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 HCU renovation 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 United States Green Building Council in March 2008.
