UW-Eau Claire Seeks Public Input on New Student Center Design

RELEASED: April 22, 2009

EAU CLAIRE — Members of the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire and greater Eau Claire communities are invited to a charette April 28 to discuss the design of the university's new student center.

The meeting will run from 4:30-6:30 p.m. in the Spruce and Tamarack rooms of Davies Center. The meeting will follow the April 28 University Senate meeting.

Architects from the Philadelphia-based architectural firm Burt, Hill and the Wisconsin-based firm Bray Architects will give a presentation at the start of the charette. A question-and-answer session will follow. Participants will be encouraged to share ideas and ask questions.

A green space between Davies Center and the Phillips Hall parking lot on the south side of lower campus is the preferred site of a new student-funded $48.8 million student center.

Technical analysis of the site is under way and public input is being solicited. Construction is expected to begin in summer 2010, with occupancy in fall 2012.

The project will be funded through segregated fees, which are paid by students. No tax dollars will be used to develop or operate the new building.

For details about the April 28 meeting, contact Charles Farrell, director of University Centers, at 715-836-5904 or farrelcf@uwec.edu.
