The Schemmer Associates Inc. (Schemmer) a local full-service architecture, engineering and planning firm, worked with OPPD to meet the
functional and environmental goals of the new Omaha S ervice Center, which earned a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED®) Platinum rating, under the rating system of the U.S. Green Building Council in September 2011. Platinum is the highest LEED® certification and the OPPD Service Center is one of three in Nebraska awarded this rating. Schemmer initially developed a facilities program and a master plan for the 13.5 acre site, located near Eppley Airfield.
Based on this plan, Schemmer Associates Inc. provided complete architectural and engineering design services.
The primary purpose of establishing renewable energies on this site was for customer education. Over the past half century, Schemmer has developed into a comprehensive, single-source multidiscipline firm prepared to offer clients a complete range of architectural, engineering and planning services. Headquartered in Omaha, Nebraska, Schemmer has regional offices in Lincoln, Nebraska; Council Bluffs and Des Moines, Iowa; as well as in Tulsa and Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.
