Mountrail-Williams Electric Cooperative
Williston, North Dakota
The Mountrail-Williams Electric Cooperative (MWEC) headquarters in Williston, North Dakota, had outgrown their original building and needed a new space to accommodate more occupants and specialized equipment and technology. Located amidst the center of the Western North Dakota oil boom territory, it was important for the MWEC HQ to remain in its existing location. Redeveloping the existing site and designing a new four-story building helped to meet the current needs of MWEC.
The project was designed to achieve a LEED Silver rating, and being an electrical utility company, providing innovative and efficient electrical systems was imperative. Obernel collaborated with the design team to create high-quality, unique, and functional light fixtures with sophisticated lighting control and sensor systems.
