UW Regents move Wyllie project forward
At the June UW Board of Regents meeting Friday in Milwaukee, the Regents approved the recommendation of University of Wisconsin-Parkside Chancellor Debbie Ford and UW System President Ray Cross to finish contract documents and begin phase-one construction of the UW-Parkside Wyllie Hall renovation project. The project updates infrastructure in Wyllie Hall, which opened in 1972, and creates a fully integrated student services area that further supports student success.
“This important renovation and student-services project enhances a key learning environment and extends the use of Wyllie Hall for decades to come,” said Scott Menke, UW-Parkside vice chancellor for finance and administration. “We appreciate the support of the Board of Regents, the Wisconsin Legislature and the Governor’s Office to move the Wyllie Hall project forward in a timely manner.”
Funding for the $35.4 million project is part of the 2017-2019 Wisconsin capital budget. The pre-design phase of the project is complete and construction is planned to begin in spring 2020 following approval by the Wisconsin State Building Commission later this month.
