We are concerned about energy management in all of our properties, so when we heard about the resources available through the Milwaukee Better Buildings Challenge we pledged several of our own buildings. By doing so, we hope to motivate our tenants to become more energy efficient and our clients to pledge their properties as well.

CliffordLarsonAllen financial and consulting services previously occupied a significant amount of space in Honey Creek III, which increased the building’s operating hours during tax season with extended weekday shifts and added weekends from Christmas to April. Since they moved out of the building in December of 2016, however, the source EUI for Honey Creek III has correspondingly decreased, as expected. Because the lease agreement has not yet expired, however, the 90% occupancy currently listed for the building is not accurately reflected in actual occupied space. Therefore, Greywolf expects to see a significant spike in source EUI when the space is once again being utilized.
- LEDs - LEDs in the basement, as well as in the rented spaces to replace older bulbs as existing tenants move out before new ones move in
- LED highlighting and uplights in the parking lot - replaced existing high pressure sodiums in 2014/2015 and received financing through the City based on the energy savings
With limited control over already rented out spaces, Greywolf Partners utilizes their own office in the Honey Creek Corporate Center as an example to future tenants about the benefits of LED lighting, and swaps out old bulbs with LEDs anytime an existing tenant moves out of a space.
Greywolf Partners also plans to work with the City to reglaze the exterior of the building that faces the highway to assist with noise control and building envelope, pending a City project to expand the road in the direction of the buildings.
