Muermann Engineering, a division of MSA Professional Services, Inc. (MSA), announced today receipt of the 2020 Focus on Energy New Construction Trade Ally Award in the category of Electrical Engineering. The Muermann-MSA team was also recognized as a consultant to Bray Architects, which also received Trade Ally Award honors. These awards recognize design efforts in the state of Wisconsin that are exemplary representatives of renewable energy and energy efficiency.
The MSA/Muermann team has a vast variety of experience in electrical, technology, plumbing, HVAC and fire sprinkler design services for schools, public safety buildings, athletic facilities, senior centers, museums, parks and more. This Trade Ally Award particularly acknowledges recent school projects, including the Forest Edge Elementary School in Fitchburg, Wisconsin, the first net-zero school in the state, wherein MSA provided electrical distribution design and collaborated in the design for 114,000 square feet of geothermal heat, 2,000 photovoltaic panels and on-site battery storage.
Focus on Energy is a statewide program promoting sustainable energy solutions, with technical support, energy design and incentives during design and construction. The awards were announced in partnership with the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) of Wisconsin on Wednesday, October 14, during Transformation 2020, the USGBC – Wisconsin annual conference.
“We are honored to receive this Trade Ally award,” commented Curt Krupp, former president of Muermann Engineering and Mechanical, Electrical and Plumbing (MEP) team leader at MSA. “Projects recognized by these awards are special in that they benefit young people, their educational paths as well as the environment. It’s truly a win-win and we’re proud to be a part of progress.” Muermann Engineering was acquired by MSA in September, 2019.
