UW-Milwaukee Chemistry building in Milwaukee, WI, is a highlight for WRMCA Concrete Design Award

MILWAUKEE, WI / Congratulations to Oneida Total Integrated Enterprises (OTIE) for winning the WRMCA Concrete Design Award for an Education & Healthcare project. The 42nd Annual Concrete Design Awards recognized seventeen winning projects.

The winning design, UW-Milwaukee’s Chemistry Building, is a new 163,000 square foot energy efficient facility with innovative design that incorporates five concrete decks to enhance the building’s stability. Post tension technology was utilized, which decreased the number of columns needed, and it opened up the interior space. Special design considerations had to be taken into account in the lab areas to minimize any effects of floor vibration.

The building will contain a mix of classrooms, laboratory space, lecture halls, informal collaboration spaces and offices. In addition, the project includes grading, paving, storm water management, loading docks, and engineering plans and specifications to extend and connect the required central campus utility services to the new building site.

Throughout the project the OTIE team participated in design charrettes, supported planning and programming, prepared conceptual (10-15%) through final (100%) design for design-bid-build (DBB) delivery.

With an estimated completion date in 2024, the new chemistry building will serve as an anchor building in the STEM quad at UW-Milwaukee.
