Each year, The Daily Reporter, a statewide construction newspaper, honors outstanding Wisconsin construction projects as Top Projects in Wisconsin. This year, three of Miron Construction Co., Inc.’s projects are being recognized: Ho-Chunk Project Forward, an initiative encompassing three projects in Black River Falls, Wis., Wittenberg, Wis., and Wisconsin Dells, Wis., respectively; the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point Chemistry Biology Building in Stevens Point, Wis.; and Pabst Farms Fleet Farm in Oconomowoc, Wis.
The awards, which will be presented at a banquet being held on May 15, 2019, at the Potawatomi Hotel & Casino in Milwaukee, recognize members of the construction industry—including general contractors, subcontractors, architects, engineers, and owners—whose projects exceeded expectations the year prior.
Below is some additional information about Miron’s award-winning projects:
The Ho-Chunk Nation recognized the need to reinvest in their Wisconsin gaming properties to better meet the needs of their patrons and create gaming destinations that generate pride within the Nation, create opportunity and economic stability, and support state tourism.
Extensive exterior improvements, including façade upgrades and the addition of porte-cocheres for the various locations, expanded parking, and site upgrades were incorporated. The design and construction ultimately connected the projects together in order to represent the Ho-Chunk brand, incorporating unique features to link each design to its unique location.
The multi-story academic and research facility is the first major free-standing academic facility to be built on the Stevens Point campus since 1971, and creates a science and research community while encouraging community outreach and ecological stewardship. The building contains classrooms, lecture halls, research labs, teaching labs, and faculty and staff offices. Research, instruction, and prep spaces are arranged to foster integration of academic and research functions and allow equipment sharing for research, instruction, and preparation. Additional features include flexible classroom configurations and movable furniture, state-of-the-art technology for hands-on learning and research, a tropical conservatory, and sustainable design.
