Construction management firm the Boldt Company, a national construction management firm with 17 office locations around the country, has completed renovation of its new corporate headquarters in Appleton, Wis., which can accommodate more than 200 employees.
The two-story office building, OneBoldt Center, will officially open in the spring and will be home to Boldt's Executive and Enterprise Support teams.
“This move solidifies our continued presence in the Appleton and greater Fox River Valley region as both a builder and a corporate citizen in the community,” said Boldt President Dave Kievet. “The renovation of the 44,000 square-foot, 13-acre campus gives us the room we need for our current and future growth over the next decade and enables us to better serve our employees and customers.”
The 6-month renovation of the existing facility creates a collaborative environment that includes huddle rooms, hybrid workstations, a health and fitness center and natural lighting.The former Integrity Insurance building was originally designed by Potter Lawson Architects and constructed by the Boldt Company in 1990-91.
Boldt integrated its own sustainable building expertise into the plan by incorporating renewable energy options, which included upgrading to LED lighting and installing an ionization purification system. In the renovation process, the existing office furnishings and fixtures were refurbished for use throughout the building or moved to other jobsites and field offices—none of the furnishings went into a landfill.
In addition to the interior office space renovation, Boldt’s National Power & Industrial (NPI) team constructed a solar panel installation on the grounds. The solar array, owned by WE Energies, will help to offset some of the community’s energy needs.
