Construction on the new Training Facility for Madison Gas and Electric is complete. The 9,650 square foot facility at 2343 Market Place Drive in Fitchburg was built to provide both indoor and outdoor areas for field workers to train and gain experience.
The building is a modern design and features a metal and brick exterior facade with several environmentally friendly features. The building has a translucent exterior wall panel system that allows natural daylight in and has good insulating value as well. There are also polished concrete floors with radiant in floor heating and an energy-efficient lighting system.
The outdoor training area features climbing poles and overhead lines that can be energized as well as space and apparatus for trench digging and gas valve training. A storm water management system was also incorporated into the drainage system of the property.
Engineered Construction completed the project under the direct supervision of Project Manager, Jim Ladika and Job Superintendent, Greg McGuire. It was designed by Potter Lawson of Madison, with Jim Moravec as lead architect.
