Reports & Discussion: 

·       K. Williams and N. Brien reported out on builder references.

o   N. Brien – Tri-North and Keller. Tri - North all walk on water according to their references. Keller’s references loved them too.

o   Tri-North – in Fitchburg, big fish in a small pond

o   Could only get 2 references, could not reach George at the grocery store site as he was too busy with COVID

o   Keller doing lots of work in Door County

o   K. Williams – Vogel and Sullivan All references were glowing. Big project experience, Keller worked more with smaller projects and outside of Madison (no experience with their regulations).  Keller does have projects in Dane County, such as WI Surplus Auction Facility.

·       M. Van Pelt reported on FCH Library

·       V. Teal Lovely reported on WISCNet building

·       C. Baumann reported on 2 staff members who have worked with the local builders

o   Experience with 3 builders, all professional, especially Sullivan.  No knowledge of Keller

Discussion among work group members of the information gathered over the last year.


Set up site visits of buildings similar to our project.  Everyone will attend but N. Brien will not go but we will Face Time with her. 


Homework for Next Meeting: 

·       K. Goeden will get another reference from Tri-North

·       Pick one site for each builder

o   Keller – WI Surplus Auction Facility – Mt. Horeb

o   Vogel – Hooper – Madison; Sun Prairie West Community Services

o   Sullivan – Lakeside International Trucking – Madison; Pepsi – Windsor

o   Tri-North – Pike Technologies – FCH  Cottonwood Drive

·       K. Goeden will contact the four sites to arrange visits.

·       H. Moe will send scheduling survey to gather everyone’s availability next month for visits.

·       N. Brien will get another reference for Tri North

·       K. Williams will visit WAU

·       Goal is to conduct site visits before August meeting.
