In conjunction with joint-venture partner Riley Construction, we are currently building the Pritzker Archives and Memorial Park Center. This state-of-the-art facility, designed by Jahn, a world-renowned architecture firm, will extend the Pritzker organization's mission to preserve history, further education and foster community by sharing the stories of those who served. It will also provide a space where both the armed forces and civilians can better understand the past, present and future of the citizen soldier. In addition, the Center will support the restoration, preservation and storage of the Pritzker collection.
The project will also include construction of community green space with walking / biking paths and picnicking areas, totaling approximately 51,800 square feet on an 18-acre site in southeastern Wisconsin. It will feature energy efficient elements such as a solar farm and accommodate rainwater and daylight harvesting. When complete, the photovoltaic system will produce approximately 570,561 kWh of electricity annually for the building.
