Renovation planned for UW-Madison Dept. of Chemistry building

MADISON (WKOW) — UW-Madison kicked off a big renovation on campus on Friday.

The university is planning a $133 million revamp of the Department of Chemistry building at University Avenue and Mills Street.

Project manager Robert McMahon says the change is needed to meet a student demand for STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) courses.

“We’ve had a real explosion in enrollment over the last 20 years and this facility will allow us to meet student demand for these new courses,” McMahon told 27 News. “And it will give a big improvement to the safety facilities that we have available.

McMahon says the project includes two large lecture rooms, a new library and four floors of undergraduate instructional labs. CLICK HERE for details on the plans for the building.
