This UW-Stout Heritage Hall Feasibility Study establishes a program, test-to-fit concept design, and budget for a renovated facility. This study will be used by the State of Wisconsin DFDM, UW System Administration (UWSA) and UW-Stout to determine the timing, funding, and next steps for this project. The project will require all State, UW System, and UW-Stout approvals and funding in order to move forward.
Due to the significant extent of the renovations, including full systems replacement, this project is anticipated to be completed in a single phase. The demolition of the original 1954 Vocational Rehabilitation building will be a part of this project and could be completed near the end of The Heritage Hall renovation to allow their programs to move into the renovated Heritage Hall building.
The oldest set of dormitories on campus are currently being utilized as office and classroom swing space and could be available to serve this project, providing swing space during the renovation. The project does include some specialty labs that may require maintaining functionality during renovation/construction or the use of modular units.
The duration of construction time for demolition and minor exterior renovation of the Vocational Rehabilitation building, renovation, systems replacement, and addition work to Heritage Hall is estimated to be in the range of 18 to 24 months.
