A story published Sept. 2 in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel provides an updated look at the three chemistry-related building projects currently in process at UW-Madison, UW-Stevens Point, and UW-La Crosse.
“UW-Madison will finally get its new chemistry building to replace a crowded building with outdated labs, thanks to $86.2 million included in the 2015-’17 state capital budget passed in July. The university will still have to come up with more than $20 million, as the new building is projected to cost $107.8 million. The new building won’t be online until 2020 — a year after the majority of incoming freshmen graduate. Construction is expected to begin in 2017.”
