In 2013, Rockwell Automation earned Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification for significantly reducing the overall environmental impact of its landmark, 2.1 million square-foot corporate headquarters in downtown Milwaukee. The recognition is the culmination of a comprehensive, 12-year sustainability program, which includes combined office, laboratory and former manufacturing space.
The Brewery development, formerly the home of the Pabst Brewing Company, was awarded the prestigious LEED Platinum level for Neighborhood Development in 2013 and has become Milwaukee’s newest sustainable, historic neighborhood. The development comprises two major university centers, offices, apartments, the Brewhouse Inn & Suites, Best Place at the Historic Pabst Brewery, student housing, and future tenants, including Hyatt Place and Milwaukee Brewing Company. Sustainable strategies include comprehensive guidelines covering brownfield redevelopment, historic preservation of former brewery buildings, stormwater management, construction waste managementm, and green building methodology.
In 2012, Milwaukee’s baseball stadium, American Family Field, was certified in the LEED Existing Building rating system, due to the nature of the facility, the sheer volume of people, materials, vendors, the operable roof, and overall complexity of the building operations.
