Energy Efficiency Improvements to Wundar Hall, a Historic Building on the Concordia Campus, Milwaukee, Wisconsin
Description: The Forest County Potawatomi Community (âFCPCâ or âCommunityâ) implemented energy efficiency improvements to revitalize Wundar Hall, a 34,000 square foot (âSFâ) building that was formerly used as a dormitory and is listed on the National Registry of Historic Places, into an office building. Wundar Hall is the first of many architecturally and historically significant buildings that the Community hopes to renovate at the former Concordia College campus, property on the near west side of Milwaukee that was taken into trust for the Community by the United States on July 10, 1990 (collectively, the âConcordia Trust Propertyâ). As part of this project, which was conducted with assistance from the Department of Energyâs Tribal Energy Program (âTEPâ), the Community updated and/or replaced the building envelope, mechanical systems, the plumbing system, the electrical infrastructure, and building control systems. The project is expected to reduce the buildingâs natural gas consumption by 58% and the electricity consumption by 55%. In addition, the project was designed to act as a catalyst to further renovation of the Concordia Trust Property and the neighborhood. The City of Milwaukee has identified redevelopment of the Concordia Trust Property as a âCatalytic Projectâ for revitalizing the near west side. The Tribe envisions a revitalized, mixed-use campus of community services, education, and economic developmentâproviding services to the Indian community and jobs to the neighborhood.
