Schlitz Audubon Nature Center
The client was in need of a larger facility to house expanding programs and resources. The goal for Irgens as Development Manager was to attain a Leadership in Environmental & Energy Design (LEED) certified rating while being sensitive to budget. Irgens assisted with contract negotiations, cost control initiatives, scheduling, value engineering, construction reviews and monitoring of sustainable initiatives. The 38,000 square foot project was completed successfully and has been awarded a LEED Gold certification by the U.S. Green Building Council.
“We wanted a project that met the highest LEED rating attainable. Irgens helped ensure we built ‘green’ and did it within budget.”
