Alumnus re-elected to second term as President of WGBA
Friday, February 1, 2013
Nick Mueller, a SARUP alumnus (BSAS 2004, March 2006) and project manager at The Boldt Company, has been re-elected for a second term as president of the Wisconsin Green Building Alliance (WGBA) by its board of directors. The WGBA is a non-profit, charitable organization that facilitates and promotes ecologically sustainable practices throughout the state's built environment.
“Sustainability in construction is just as important to me now as it was when I was first elected last year,” said Mueller. “The WGBA’s programs have grown in the past year and I’m proud to continue leading the alliance to future success in fulfilling its mission of increasing awareness of sustainable building practices and facilitating their use across Wisconsin.”
Prior to becoming president, Mueller served for two years as secretary on the WGBA’s board of directors. Mueller’s lifelong interest in sustainable construction has resulted in valuable experience that he now uses in his role at the WGBA. Some of Mueller’s related experience includes creating Boldt’s tracking process for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design ( LEED ) building certification, and involvement in some of Boldt’s “greenest” projects including ThedaCare Physicians Darboy clinic (LEED Gold), Lawrence University’s Warch Campus Center (LEED Gold) and Lakeland College’s campus master plan.
In addition to his involvement with the WGBA, Mueller authors a sustainability column for the Appleton Post-Crescent and speaks at conferences across the country about issues related to sustainable construction.
The WGBA is an affiliate of the US Green Building Council.
