Alverno College will break ground next spring on a $30 million expansion and renovation project at its campus on the south side of Milwaukee.
The plans include a new three-story, 50,000-square-foot building; a 13,500-square-foot building addition and 125,000 square feet of building renovations. It will be the largest campus improvement project in the history of the 126-year-old women's college, which has about 2,600 students. The new building that will be added to the campus will provide space for nine more classrooms, a nursing simulation center and art and dance studios. The project plans also include an expanded and renovated student commons building. The project was designed by Milwaukee-based Uihlein Wilson Architects and the construction manager for the project is J.H. Findorff & Son Inc. The project is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2015.
