Sustainability starts with the initial decision to begin a building project. This mindset remains through design and construction and continues throughout the building lifespan and beyond. It’s our goal to provide the owner with a building that to be considered a functional success, will leave a positive impact on our environment.
At Immel Construction, we believe sustainable construction practices have become commonplace in how we perform our tasks. A LEED AP professional will guide our team through the process of establishing an initial report of possible points for your project. Whether or not you choose to pursue actual certification by the USGBC, we will utilize this report as specification for how your project is designed, constructed, and eventually, operated.
A perfect example of our dedication to sustainability is the work we did at St. Mary’s Hospital Medical Center in Green Bay, Wisconsin, where we incorporated a vegetated roof and sunken healing garden for the Cancer Center addition as a part of its intention to follow the sustainable building practices of the USGBC. Although not submitted for LEED certification, this $22 million project would meet the equivalency of a “Silver” rating.

And the $18 million, state-of-the-art Yellowjacket Student Union at UW-Superior in Superior, Wisconsin was another leading example of sustainable construction. The project received LEED “Silver” certification by the U.S. Green Building Council for its environmental design and construction. The student center features a 17,000 square foot vegetated roof over the curved roof line of the main activities space.
Immel Construction is committed to building and sustainable construction in a way that is sensitive to our environment.
