Upcoming renovation and maintenance projects
Dear university community,
Starting this spring, buildings across the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater will be undergoing important maintenance and renovations.
Fifteen different projects totaling $25.6 million are planned — from general building repairs to upgrades that will enhance the student experience. The vast majority of projects are made possible through an additional $16.7 million in funding through the state of Wisconsin as distributed by the University of Wisconsin System that is specifically earmarked for maintenance and repairs; and about $8 million through program revenue bonding, which are bonds paid through revenues generated from auxiliary operations.
The projects include:
- Replacing the roof on Esker Dining Hall
- Redundancy project to protect our data systems in McGraw Hall
- Upgrading the heating plant to produce its own steam
- Upgrading the underground central utility systems, including rebuilding or replacing steam pits, and a new chilled water loop
- Replacing air handlers in the Greenhill Center of the Arts
- Exterior repairs on Upham Hall
- General repairs in McGraw Hall
- Interior work in McCutchan Hall
- Interior work on the 4th floor of Heide Hall
- Reconstructing parking lot 17 (north of Fischer Hall)
- New freight elevators in the University Center and Drumlin Dining Hall
- Renovating the Greenhill Center of the Arts Sculpture Laboratory
- Technology/lighting upgrades in Young Auditorium
- Replacing the turf at Perkins Stadium
- New McCutchan Hall outdoor gathering space
There will at times be sidewalk closures and accompanying signage with rerouting around the construction. Our team will work to accomplish as much as possible in the late spring and summer in an effort to minimize the impact on our university community during the fall and spring semesters.
We appreciate your understanding and support,
Interim Vice Chancellor for Administrative Affairs
