Hoffman LLC, one of the nation’s largest planning, architecture and construction firms that specializes in energy-efficient building design, was recently honored with awards by both the Wisconsin Green Building Alliance and the Associated General Contractors of Wisconsin.

As evidenced in our projects, our dedication is not only to our clients, but to the future of our state and the environment as a whole.”
In the education market, Hoffman received a SE2 Sustainability & Energy Efficiency Leadership Award sponsored by the WGBA. The award annually recognizes leadership in energy efficient and sustainable design, construction and operation of Wisconsin buildings. Hoffman was selected for their work on Woodland School in Kimberly, WI.
The 134,000 square foot facility, which opened its doors in Aug. for the 2006-2007 school year, contains sustainable design elements including waterless urinals, daylighting sensors and the use of recycled and low emitting materials. Hoffman will be honored for this award on Oct. 18 at the Sustainability and Energy Efficiency Leadership Conference at the Monona Terrace and Convention Center in Madison, WI.

The 12,177 square foot facility features glass walls that allow natural light into the lobby and high indoor air quality.
