TIt’s another sustainable feather in Sage Hall’s cap.

Sage will be among the buildings recognized Oct. 4 at the 10th Annual Sustainable Energy Efficiency (Se2) Conference at UW-Milwaukee.

“Outstanding environmentally friendly buildings located in Milwaukee, Madison, Oshkosh, Edgerton and Glendale” earned honors, according to the Wisconsin Green Building Alliance (WGBA), which sponsors the Se2 Leadership Award event.

Sage is being recognized with a “New Construction Special Citation for Lighting and Daylighting,” features integrated into the building’s design by Berners-Schober Associates, Inc., of Green Bay.

“By incorporating renewable energy sources and sustainable principles, the four-story, 191,000-square-foot building is expected to save the university more than $182,000 annually,” the WGBA noted, also citing Sage’s LEED Gold achievement, solar energy technology and courtyard and orientation, which help bring light into the building’s core and classrooms.

The WGBA honors leadership in energy efficient and sustainable design, construction and operation of Wisconsin commercial and other non-residential buildings and related systems.

“The Se2 Award, now in its 10th year, aims to encourage greater collaboration among owners, designers, builders and operators by highlighting the value of projects that enhance the built environment,” said Nick Mueller, WGBA board president and a project manager with The Boldt Company in Appleton.
