A lab mod project through UW System's Instructional Space Improvement Program, this project expands the footprint by approximately 900 SF improving safety and accessibility. The project also provides much needed ventilation and fire suppression in CA35 (printmaking) and CA45 (Costume collection). It is currently under construction and is slated for late summer completion.
A multi-phase utility corridor improvement project that will be implemented over several years. Phase 3 (Chiller Plant expansion) and Phase 4 (West Campus Residence area utility replacement) are currently under construction. Phase 5, creation of a central campus utility loop (steam and chilled water) and steam pit repairs, is in design and slated for Spring/Summer 2020 construction.
The Campus Address Re-Alignment Project has been completed to improve emergency response, wayfinding and alignment with the City of Whitewater addressing grid. The address grid is maintained in an information technology platform for 911. Changes put in place ensure data in system is optimal for emergency response. This has been a joint effort between the City of Whitewater’s Planning Office and Emergency Response and Dispatch Office and UW-Whitewater’s Police Department, Parking Services, ICIT and Campus Facilities Planning Team.

Athletic Complex Buildings (15J1P)
This project addressed facility and program needs for the football and baseball service buildings. For the football program, this included a single story addition to the north side of the Stadium Athletic Services Building, which allowed the locker rooms to be reconfigured for the home team and expanded therapy area, including three hydrotherapy pools. The existing building underwent a partial renovation. The building was in use for the Fall 2018 Football Season.
The Baseball Service Building was a little more complex. The former second story was removed and the new addition included a new 2nd floor and an addition to the east and south of the existing first floor. The first floor is dedicated to baseball team support areas, while the second floor provides administration offices for Men's Baseball and Women's Soccer, as well as spectator viewing areas for baseball games and other events. Rough-ins were included for a future Pressbox / Concession building behind home plate. Occupancy is in progress and will be ready for the start of the spring sport season.
Both buildings have expanded physical therapy areas available to all sport programs. The therapy area in the Baseball Services Building is accessible from the outside, thus making it convenient for the teams using the adjacent fields.
