Breaking ground on a campus centerpiece

UW-Stout broke ground on a Jarvis Hall renovation and expansion project this summer. The project is scheduled to be completed in 2010.

The addition will be the home of the academic disciplines of science, technology, engineering and mathematics, including the emerging areas of biotechnology and nanotechnology.

The $43.2 million project will remodel 66,400 square feet of the current building and add a three-story addition and one-story classroom wing totaling 90,900 square feet. There will be space for science instruction, research, general assignment classrooms, as well as space for the mathematics, statistics and computer science department.

An outdated classroom wing with 11,400 square feet will be demolished and replaced.

The original Jarvis Hall was built in 1970. Named for John Jarvis, who served as vice president of Academic Affairs from 1962 to 1973, Jarvis Hall has served as the primary instruction area for the sciences at UW-Stout.
