John is being recognized for his vision and leadership in bringing Hunzinger Construction Company to the forefront of the industry in both sustainable building and 3-D modeling technologies. Under John’s direction, Hunzinger has been at the vanguard of Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) green construction practices and administration for over 10 years. Hunzinger has 35 LEED Accredited Professionals on staff and has taken a leadership role in educating clients, property owners, facility managers, subcontractors, and architects on green building practices.

John Hunzinger created a new division, Sustainable Building Solutions (SBS), for the purpose of green education/training, and consulting and has trained 1,000 people for their LEED AP Exams. The impact that these 1,000 LEED AP’s are having has transformed the landscape of sustainable building in Wisconsin. Hunzinger also created the annual Green Building Conference. This free conference is in its 8th year and averages 200 attendees with 1,850 people attending to date. The reach of this educational program has been particularly impactful because the information presented is being used daily by designers and engineers to create a transformed built environment.

Another area where John has been an impactful leader is on 3-D building modeling technology.

Hunzinger has invested significant time and resources into the successful implementation of its trademarked process known as Virtual Design & Construction Coordination™, (V.D.C.C.). The process enhancement of this collaborative effort is truly unmatched in the market. VDCC is more than traditional 3D modeling; Hunzinger integrates its groundbreaking Archispatial Model™ which is an interactive platform utilizing architectural models for the purpose of scheduling, estimating, sequencing and project coordination.  By integrating this pioneering Archispatial Model, VDCC becomes a 5-dimension analysis and collaborative platform that not only virtually constructs, coordinates and quantifies building systems and assemblies in the three traditional spatial dimensions, but also incorporates a 4th dimension of project sequencing /delivery detail (Schedule) and a 5th dimension of project budget and cash flow detail (Cost). VDCC, using Archispacial Analysis™, has been proven to save both time and money for all project participants and is truly on the cutting edge of the current technology.

“It is an honor to be acknowledged along with this wonderful group of people who have helped to make southeast Wisconsin an exciting place to do business. We have a great team of people at Hunzinger Construction Company and together we make these kinds of recognitions possible,” said John Hunzinger.
