PNC East Capitol Bank Branch
PNC East Capitol Bank Branch is located at 275 East Capitol Drive in Milwaukee, WI. Hunzinger Construction Company was hired as general contractor for this 1,800 SF build-out for a new PNC branch bank designed by Timothy Seidel – Architect, LLC that included Sustainable Building Solutions as the LEED Consultant and Project Administrator.
The project achieved LEED for Retail: Commercial Interiors Silver certification. The build out received the certification because an efficient lighting design was developed and implemented to reduce overall lighting energy consumption. Automatic occupancy sensors were also installed that control lighting and energy efficient dimmable fixtures that can be adjusted to occupant preference. Additionally, high priority was placed on specifying construction and finish materials that were made from recycled materials and can potentially by recycled in the future. A rigorous Indoor Air Quality Management Plan was developed and followed throughout construction to improve the quality of air inside the space. The plan included provisions such as protecting the air handling units from dust generated during construction and the use of healthier, low VOC paints, adhesives, and interior finish products.
