MILWAUKEE, WI, June 6, 2018 - Medical College of Wisconsin (MCW) announced that it has selected ACS to manage the $15 million renovation of the second and fourth floors of its Basic Science Building. MCW and ACS have more than ten years of history building together, constructing superior facilities and laboratories ranging from research to teaching to training. MCW relies on ACS to deliver high-quality building solutions.
MCW is in the process of modernizing its existing laboratories to provide flexibility for future research. Over the years, MCW and ACS have partnered to modernize the building, including renovations to the first and third floors as well as infrastructure supporting the building such as an emergency generator, elevator enhancements, HVAC units, a new roof, and a multi-year electrical power distribution upgrade. This project, to begin in the fall, will address two of the remaining four floors and will integrate current practices and standards for a modern research facility. The second and fourth floors renovation will be the first phase of a four-floor renovation to the Basic Science Building, one of MCW’s original Milwaukee Campus buildings. A key success factor for this project includes minimizing the disruption to adjacent working areas while construction and MCW facility personnel continue to operate simultaneously.
“At ACS, we proudly align ourselves with MCW’s belief that to build a healthier world is to build it together,” said Bob Roth, Director of Project Delivery and Principal at ACS. “Our project team has experience with successfully managing complex renovations with minimal disruption to ongoing operations. Our expertise in MEP systems and constructability provides an exceptional set of skills that will ensure MCW’s goals are met and that their research functions can continue during the project implementation.”
The long and successful relationship between ACS and MCW demonstrates ACS’s commitment to the industry and is a testament to ACS’s mindset of collaboration and positive communication.
Phase I of the renovation is set to begin this fall.
