UP: Marshall Erdman & Associates. The company decides to stay in Madison and build a $20 million corporate headquarters on the west side. The new five-story building will be "green," using natural daylight and efficient lighting to offset its energy use. Construction could begin later this summer, pending city approvals.
DOWN: The state Department of Administration. Despite intense opposition, the agency awards a $1.8 million contract to clean 15 state buildings to CleanPower, which union activists say has blocked organizing attempts. The state says contract provisions will ensure fair salaries and protect workers.
