The presentation to Mille Lacs Band Chief Executive Marge Anderson was made at Grand Casino Hinckley by Peter Potvin, vice president of the St. Paul, Minn., engineering consulting firm of Lundquist, Wilmar, Potvin and Bender, Inc. The award is based on an HVAC system design which achieves energy efficiency, indoor air quality, innovation, operations, maintenance and cost effectiveness.
