Mid-State Technical College, Student Services Project
Wisconsin Rapids, WI
Delivery Method: General Contractor
Architect: Somerville Architects
Ellis Construction was awarded the 11,730-square-foot project. The addition allowed for significant updating through a new progressive design as well as the use of daylighting to update the circa 1960s feel of the existing space. Ellis craftworkers used their skills with unique approaches to expedite steel setting as well as demonstrate new approaches to mounting large wood laminate beams.
The project also had as its mission the goal of creating an atmosphere that would foster learning and enhance the student experience. The build-out also allowed for several individual offices to be constructed in order to serve the needs of the students from a fresh new environment. Attention to detail was paramount and use of glazing and masonry completes a wonderful new front door for Mid-State’s main campus.
