Regents authorize leasing space to Mayo Clinic Health System in new UWEC science building

The Universities of Wisconsin System Board of Regents has authorized UW-Eau Claire to enter into a lease with Mayo Clinic Health System for the medical organization to occupy integrated research workspace in the new Science and Health Sciences Building.

The proposed 30-year lease terms call for 10,000 square feet of research, instructional, office and meeting space in the building to be occupied by Mayo Clinic Health System. Mayo Clinic Health System has committed $13.7 million to the project and would have space on all five floors of the building that would be integrated into the UW-Eau Claire faculty and student spaces.

Construction is scheduled to begin this summer on the $340.3 million state-of-the-art Science and Health Sciences Building.

The 330,000-square-foot Science and Health Sciences Building will replace the outdated Phillips Hall and will house space for multiple academic programs: biology, chemistry and biochemistry, computer science, geography and anthropology, geology and environmental science, public health and environmental studies, neuroscience, materials science and biomedical engineering, physics and astronomy, and nursing.
