Glenwood Area Fisheries

Glenwood, mn

The facility produces walleye for stock fishing lakes throughout the state, featuring a research lab evaluating stocking processes, artificial spawning habitats and genetic performance. The DNR’s environmental stewardship is baked into the building’s infrastructure, which utilizes energy neutral technologies, including geothermal heating and cooling, LED smart lighting, natural lighting and solar energy. The grounds are landscaped with native plants, rain gardens and pervious pavers to control runoff.

  • Any additional comments on the project:
    Getting this built out of SIPs was the only way this building could have been on schedule with the adverse weather conditions. Labor was saved as the precise cut SIPs saved a ton of time during the erection process. Project came on budget due to the accuracy and time saving of the SIPs. Perry from Extreme Panel got to train a very large contractor (Kraus Anderson) in erecting panels, now they are not afraid of putting up SIPs from Extreme Panel.
