3. Sandburg Residence Hall Renovation

N. Maryland Ave

This project will master plan, design and complete the renovation of Sandburg Hall north, south and west resident room towers.   Project programming, including comprehensive building code and facilities condition assessments will be performed on the entire facility complex, including exterior, and a project phasing plan developed to renovate and repair Sandburg Hall. Design alternatives, phasing options, and plan implementation scenarios with corresponding budget estimates and schedules will be analyzed and recommended for the proposed scope of work included in this request, as well as anticipated future renovations and repairs for the next 20 years. The phasing options will be developed to plan maintenance and repairs during the summer as much as is feasible to allow the facility to remain operational during the fall and spring semesters. It is anticipated that the complete scope of maintenance and renovation work identified in the master plan may not be completed under this proposed enumeration request.

This project renovates and repairs the north, south, and west resident room towers (267,525 ASF/429,449 GSF and serving 2,166 students) of Sandburg Hall to replace deteriorated domestic water and sanitary sewer piping infrastructure; renovate and replace elevator equipment and controls; and renovate the HVAC systems, electrical infrastructure and distribution, and fire alarm and smoke detection systems to resolve maintenance deficiencies and meet current life and safety codes. Resident rooms, restrooms, showers, and common spaces will be renovated to meet current ADA accessibility standards and replace architectural finishes and furnishings to facilitate the infrastructure repair work. There will be individual bids packages for each of the South, North and West Towers. Elevators and fire suppression upgrade will be included in each package.

10. Hefter Conference Center first floor updates

Lake Drive

This project updates finishes, furniture, art and window treatments on the first floor of the Hefter Conference Center.  Rugs, furniture and art are made in the USA. Two talented architectural assistants in the Campus Planning and Management office created the rug designs that reflect the architectural character and incorporate UWM colors in a modern design that brightens the rooms. The foyer rug has a classic appeal with warm colors complimenting the custom wood paneling of the room.  The decorative plaster motif design from the ceiling is blended with classic and modern geometrics in the Living room and Dining room rugs. The Library rug brings nature into the room with a field of poppies and the Billiard room rug has a classic medallion pattern. The Art History Gallery collaborated on the art installation.
