Project Overview

The University of Wisconsin Whitewater is upgrading its existing chiller plant and utilities throughout campus. This $22.3 million, multi-phase project includes comprehensive utility corridor improvements for the north and central campus, an addition to the heating and chiller plant, as well as dorm utility improvements. The added capacity of the new plant will exceed their current energy needs, and allow for UWW’s continued expansion. Continuum is serving as the architect for the project and has developed numerous design options for the chiller plant based on what the campus wanted, while adhering to strict design guidelines. The contemporary design and liberal use of glass allows the building to break away from the traditional back-of-house utility plant and become a prominent campus icon.
