The University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee broke ground on a $118 million chemistry building in January of 2022. Designed by Kahler Slater and CannonDesign, the 163,400-sf facility will feature technology-rich laboratories that integrate both teaching and research functions in a highly collaborative layout. Offering lecture halls, classrooms, and group study venues, the four-story structure will provide numerous student interaction areas with integrated whiteboards and a variety of seating options. Illuminated by natural light, the highly transparent building will accommodate the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry while serving as a gateway to the university’s STEM programs in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. VJS Construction Services is the general contractor for the project, which is slated for occupancy in early 2024.
