UW Milwaukee starts construction on first new building in almost 20 years

MILWAUKEE, WI (WTAQ) - Wisconsin’s second-largest public university is putting up its first new academic building in almost 20 years.

Construction is underway on the Kenwood Interdisciplinary Research Center at UW Milwaukee.

It will be the largest building on the campus, with 150,000 square feet.

The facility is expected to open in about a year-and-a-half.

The Journal Sentinel says two similar-sized buildings could be added later, to create a research facility for what’s known as “STEM” – which stands for science, technology, engineering, and math.

Preliminary plans show that all three buildings would be connected, with a total price-tag of $225-million.

UWM Chancellor Mike Lovell says the Kenwood facility will help his school compete for larger science grants on a national basis.

Lovell said the Milwaukee has not made a significant investment in the “STEM’ fields for almost a half-century. He said the current research facilities are nearing the end of their structural lifetimes.
