The University of Wisconsin-Madison is preparing to move forward with a proposal to build a $300-million college of engineering building.
The Wisconsin State Building Commission approved $1 million from the state building trust funds to prepare plans for the building as part of $71 million it OK’d for various projects during a June 22 meeting. This was the second round of funding the commission had approved for preliminary design. The Wisconsin Dept. of Administration has selected Continuum Architects + Planners, in association with SmithGroup and Ring & DuChateau LLP, as designers for the UW-Madison project.
