CUNA Mutual Group Corporate World Headquarters Campus is located at 5910 Mineral Point Road in Madison, WI.  Hunzinger has served as CUNA Mutual Group’s Construction Manager on multiple commercial projects including the 23 phase corporate headquarters interior renovation project that consisted of three occupied buildings and underground parking totaling nearly 1,000,000 square feet. This is the largest office renovation of its kind ever completed in the State of Wisconsin.  Plunkett Raysich Architects was the lead designer.

The scope of this massive multi-year undertaking included the demolition of existing interior finishes, construction of new private offices, conference rooms, executive suites, open office areas, kitchen & cafeteria, along with mechanical and electrical upgrades.  The renovation projects ranged from areas as small as 5,500 SF, housing the facilities department, to as large as 90,000 SF covering two entire floors.  Scope of work also included adding new emergency generators, renovations to the Data Center, repairs to parking ramp columns and underground tunnels, parking lot paving, plus one dozen other concurrent projects.  We successfully tackled the major infrastructure improvements, dramatically improved energy efficiency, and reduced operation costs throughout the campus. The main hurdle this project presented was how to seamlessly transition operations and employees while not impeding their performance or compromising their comfort.  Hunzinger facilitated a smooth transition by providing early pre-construction services including master budgets and schedules, and concurrent drawing review, both architectural and mechanical, with the owner and architect.  Mechanical and electrical contractors were contracted utilizing the design assist approach.


As you know, a remodeling project of this magnitude, working constantly in an occupied space, spanning over five years and 1,000,000 square feet, was a major challenge for a company of our size in many different ways. Your firms knowledge of large scale, complex remodeling/construction projects, especially prior experience relating to managing and working with the many different subs needed to insure success made this project run smoothly.

Your ability to bring this project in on time and on budget for each one of the many phases was extremely important. Without the help of Hunzinger and all your resources, there is no doubt we would not have achieved our goal of completing this five-year project on time.
