Findorff is fortunate to have several projects receive recognition from year to year for their quality craftsmanship. Most recently, In Business, The Daily Reporter, and Milwaukee Business Journal recognized several buildings we proudly constructed. They include:
- American Family Insurance’s The Spark: The Spark is a nine-story, 158,000-square-foot building developed by American Family Insurance. It features creative and collaborative office spaces, plus is home to StartingBlock Madison. The Spark is pursuing LEED Certification and was developed around standards set by the International WELL Being Institute. Eppstein Uhen Architects and Potter Lawson were the project’s architects. In Business named this building the Most Innovative Green Solution. The Spark also received a Top Projects Award from The Daily Reporter.
- Marquette University’s The Commons: The Commons is a new, state-of-the-art, co-ed residence hall. Spanning 292,000 square feet, the facility includes 9-story and 12-story towers made up of single and double rooms. A 650-seat dining and community space joins the two towers as an inviting area for students to eat and socialize. The project’s architects were Workshop Architects and Design Collective. This Commons was recognized as the Best New Development in Education by In Business, Best New Development in Education by the Milwaukee Business Journal, and received a Top Projects Award from The Daily Reporter.
- Summit Credit Union – Monona: Summit Credit Union’s new branch in Monona is a 4,000-square-foot steel structure with a 1,000-square-foot drive up canopy. This project was designed by Strang and includes interesting architectural features that are common throughout many updated Summit Credit Union locations. In Business awarded this project the Best New Development in Retail.
- Sun Prairie Area School District’s Token Springs and Meadow View Elementary Schools: In 2016, the District passed a referendum for two new schools to support its growing community. These buildings are Token Springs and Meadow View Elementary Schools. Combined, they span over 240,000 square feet. Both have themed spaces for each grade level and were designed with sustainable building features. Eppstein Uhen Architects served as the project’s architect. The schools received a Top Projects Award from The Daily Reporter.
Congratulations to all the teams for your award-winning work!
