UW Health Union Corners Medical Office Building Is Recognized with EPA’s Designed to Earn the ENERGY STAR
JDR Engineering, Inc. is pleased to announce that the UW Health Union Corners design project has been recognized as Designed to Earn the ENERGY STAR by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Designed to Earn the ENERGY STAR projects meet strict energy efficiency design targets and are intended to create fewer greenhouse gas emissions and save money on energy bills over the lifetime of the building. After collecting energy data for one year, Union Corners achieved an Energy Star score of 92! This makes Union Corners UW Health’s highest rated clinic in energy, meaning it performs in the top 8% of similar type buildings nationally (enclosed). UW Health’s previous leader was Fort Atkinson, with an impressive Energy Star score of 76.

Commercial new construction projects can be recognized with EPA’s Designed to Earn the ENERGY STAR by achieving an ENERGY STAR score of 75 or higher, which indicates the building is intended to perform among the top 25 percent of similar buildings nationwide. Once the building is occupied, owners can track its actual energy performance using EPA’s ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager tool and earn ENERGY STAR certification. The UW Health Union Corners Medical Office Building recently received an Energy Star score of 92.

JDR Engineering provided HVAC Design, Electrical Design, Plumbing and Fire Protection Design and Energy Simulation for the design and construction of the new medical office building project with Plunkett Raysich Architects for UW Health Systems.  The project achieved USGBC LEED Silver Certification rating in accordance with 2009 USGBC LEED standards for New Construction.  The medical clinic includes space for primary and urgent care, obstetrics and gynecology, physical therapy, laboratory and clinic offices.  This two-story medical office building, also includes an underground parking garage.  

ENERGY STAR was introduced by EPA in 1992 as a voluntary, market-based partnership to reduce greenhouse gas emissions through energy efficiency. Today, the ENERGY STAR label can be found on more than 65 different kinds of products as well as new homes and commercial and industrial buildings that meet strict energy-efficiency specifications set by the EPA. American families and businesses have saved a total of nearly $230 billion on utility bills and prevented more than 1.8 billion metric tons of greenhouse gas emissions with help from ENERGY STAR.
