Projects to clean up the exterior of the University of Wisconsin Field House and construct a new plaza outside its south doors have been given a thumbs-up. Jason King, UW’s senior associate athletic director for capital projects and operations, told the Athletic Board’s finance, facilities and operations committee on Wednesday that the work, totaling just under $6 million, was approved by the State Building Commission. An exterior renovation to the 88-year-old building will include new, historically accurate doors and windows that will increase energy efficiency. The price tag was reported at $2.995 million, 92% of which will be paid for from UW athletics gift funds. The redevelopment of the south plaza outside the Field House was ticketed at $2.998 million, with 94% of the money coming from gifts. The latter project will reconfigure the area between the arena and Monroe, Little and Regent streets with new retaining walls, landscaping and steps. King told the committee that the athletic department hopes to seek bids for the projects this fall, with construction to begin early in 2020. – TODD D. MILEWSKI, wiscnews – Read More
