Milwaukee U-Haul facility receives LEED-CI Silver

The new elements of the facility now include: efficient lighting with day-lighting controls and occupancy sensors, a high-efficiency HVAC system used in conjunction with a newly constructed thermal envelope to help reduce energy consumption, and the installation of low-flow fixtures to reduce water consumption.

U-Haul Moving and Storage in Milwaukee has earned LEED-CI Certification Silver for commercial interiors from the USGBC. It is only one of two businesses who have earned a Silver Certification for LEED-CI in the city of Milwaukee.

The U-Haul project utilized an existing industrial warehouse built in the early 1930s that was located in Milwaukee's Fifth Ward district.

The project included restructuring a 3,371 square foot area, to be used as a retail showroom. The space was located within an existing heavy-steel-frame structure enclosed by brick walls and a wood roof. The brick walls were repurposed into double-wythe walls by similar bricks acquired from another building in Milwaukee built in the same time frame. 

The new elements of the facility now include: efficient lighting with day-lighting controls and occupancy sensors, a high-efficiency HVAC system used in conjunction with a newly constructed thermal envelope to help reduce energy consumption, and the installation of low-flow fixtures to reduce water consumption.
