National Park Service – Apostle Islands

At the northern tip of Wisconsin, Apostle Islands National Lakeshore consists of 21 islands and 12 miles of nearby Lake Superior shoreline. Nine lighthouses line the shore, casting their beams of light onto the vast lake. For the rehabilitation and renovation of seven of these historic lighthouses — on Long Island, Sand Island, Outer Island, Michigan Island, and Devils Island – 360 Engineering provided design for all new mechanical systems. To meet the stringent requirements of the net-zero energy buildings, the design incorporated sustainable features such as running the ventilation for humidity control, which maintains structural integrity, off a combination of direct current (DC) power, solar power, and battery.
