Owner: State of Wisconsin
Size: 4,600 SF Addition / 31,419 SF Remodel
Completion: August 2010
Architect / Engineer: KEE Architecture Inc.
Awarded Silver LEED Certification

Project Description:

The project completely remodeled the existing 2-story, 31,419 square-foot Elmwood Commons facility with a 4,600 square-foot addition, to create a new Student Success Center housing Career Services, the Counseling Center, the Center for Academic Resources, the Undergraduate Advising Resource Center, and the Writing Center. These functions were brought together from scattered locations on campus. Remodeling provides efficiencies of combined office and support spaces for the functions of student advising, counseling, and career services.

The project is the largest state building to date to incorporate geothermal heating and cooling, which uses the heat of the earth to regulate the temperature inside the building. The result is a building that is expected to be 75 percent more efficient. The Student Success Center is also an example of a “solar-ready” building. Features were added for a future photovoltaic array, including rooftop curbs to support solar panels, conduit for wiring, and a closet set aside for electrical components.
