It’s Back to School time again and Hunzinger Construction Company is pleased to announce the completion of three great projects all in time for the 2015-2016 school year.
The first, completed on August 3rd in plenty of time for the first football game held on August 20th, is the Custer Stadium Renovation, a project of the Milwaukee Public School District located at 4300 West Fairmount Avenue on Milwaukee’s northwest side. Hunzinger Construction Company was the General Contractor for this $5 million extensive renovation.
Completed on August 15th for a September 4th school start date is Horizon Elementary School Addition and Remodel, located in at 458 Lake Street in Pewaukee, WI. Hunzinger Construction Company teamed with Eppstein Uhen Architects as Design-Builder on this 11,800 square foot fast-tracked addition and renovation. Construction work began early in April of 2015 in the occupied and fully functioning school. Our crews persevered through 11 ½ inches of rain that fell over the first two weeks of our mobilizing on site, creating a huge challenge to meet the August 15th completion date but the strong project management and field supervision of work crews, we finished on time.
Our third, completed on August 18th, two weeks before the start of the Fall Quarter, is the Milwaukee School of Engineering Grohmann Tower Apartments. Hunzinger was the Construction Manager on MSOE’s new residence hall, Grohmann Tower. Uihlein Wilson Architects, located in downtown Milwaukee, was the project architect for this complex 2-phased conversion that is part renovation and part new construction. Hunzinger self-performed selective demolition and all the concrete and rough and finish carpentry work.
Hunzinger is continuing work at MSOE preparing the ground floor of the Grohmann Tower Apartments for their newly announced tenant Pizano’s Pizza and Pasta. The Chicago-area chain known for its Chicago-style deep dish pizza plans to open later this fall.
At Hunzinger, we are very proud of our ability to drive schedules and meet our client’s deadlines for completion and move in dates.
