Necessitated by steady company growth, Fowler & Hammer, Inc. chose to construct a new office building located at 313 Monitor Street on La Crosse’s North Side.
As a general contractor we felt a responsibility to pursue LEED Certification of our new building. A tremendous amount of designing and planning went into all the green aspects of this building. The LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Green Building Rating System is a voluntary, consensus-based national standard for developing high-performance, sustainable buildings. LEED provides a complete framework for assessing building performance and meeting sustainability goals.
Doug Ramsey, AIA, LEED AP, and Lu Cagin, IIDA, LEED AP of HSR Associates, Inc. were selected to design and engineer the new office building.
Fowler & Hammer, Inc. has made a conscious decision to become a more earth-friendly company. We have begun replacing a portion of our fleet of large pickup trucks with small ultra low emission Vehicles. The new office building represents the last piece of the puzzle in a year long redevelopment project that included work on seven buildings and over an acre of land.
