Retzer Nature Center Geothermal System
The Retzer Nature Center located at S14 W28167 Madison St., Waukesha, WI is a non-profit organization dedicated to environmental education. They are dedicated to providing hands-on outdoor environmental educational opportunities for school groups, families and adults through public programs. Retzer Nature Center strives to create awareness and appreciation of the environment through the 25,000 people that visit their 450+ acres annually.
Sustainable Building Solutions was hired as a consultant to advise them on adding a Geothermal System to their existing Waukesha facility. The project scope included boring 20 – 300’ deep vertical wells with a closed loop piping system with ground source heat pumps that replaced the original gas furnaces to heat their welcome center and classroom facility.
