New corporate campus for Hooper/GHAC
On October 19, 2020, a quiet, quarantine-style groundbreaking was held on the site of Hooper/General Heating and Air Conditioning’s new corporate campus. Safety restrictions due to COVID-19 prevented any high-profile celebrations, however, enthusiasm for the project was widespread, and continues to be as construction evolves.
The overall project includes a 68,860 sf office building with 43,730 sf of underground parking, plus a 207,226 sf fabrication facility located on 50 acres in DeForest, Wisconsin. Rolling topography and dense woodland areas create a warm and welcoming aesthetic to the campus. Both buildings are designed to highlight the expertise and professional capabilities of Hooper/GHAC, with features such as a 60-well geothermal bore field, water-cooled modular chiller, in-floor radiant heat, an in-ground snow melt system, and much more.
In each building, corporate legacy, values, and commitment to safety will be on display in both details and larger installations. Upon completion in late Fall 2021, the entire campus will be a showcase of Hooper/GHAC’s capabilities and craft.
