The University of Wisconsin-Platteville broke ground on the $55 million Sesquicentennial Hall in November of 2020. Designed by BWBR Architects, the 99,200-sf facility will provide collaborative research and learning environments for programs in engineering, computer science, and sustainable and renewable energy systems (SRES). Featuring a 20,000-sf innovation center with an integrated maker space, the interdisciplinary structure will offer five cross-functional teaching labs, senior design labs, undergraduate research labs, two active learning classrooms, and a traditional lecture classroom. The project will also house administrative and faculty offices, conference rooms, study spaces, a café, and an accessible green roof. Physically adjoining the existing Engineering Hall, the addition will act as a teaching tool with exposed infrastructure and intelligent building systems. LEED certification will be sought for the sustainably designed facility, which is being built by Miron Construction for a contract value of $28.1 million. Occupancy is expected in fall of 2022.
