Miron Construction Breaks Ground on $75M Science Building for University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point
STEVENS POINT, WIS. — Miron Construction Co. has broken ground on a $75 million science building for the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point, located 100 miles west of Green Bay. The four-story, 176,500-square-foot chemistry building will include classrooms, lecture halls, research and teaching labs, faculty and staff offices and a tropical conservatory. The facility, which is slated for completion in 2018, is the first major freestanding building constructed on the campus since 1971. The building is designed to use 40 percent less energy and 26 percent less water compared with a conventional design through the utilization of large windows, highly efficient mechanical and electrical systems, bioswales and rain gardens. HOK and Potter Lawson are designing the building.
