UWSP Welcome Center Renovation
Stevens Point, WI
Delivery Method: Design-Build Contractor
Architect: Ellis Construction, Steve Chizzo, AIA, LEED AP
The UWSP Welcome Center was in exterior and interior renovation of a former staff/student worship space which now serves as a meeting space for the university and prospective university students. The space primarily serves as a first impression piece for students and their families, being a hub for the admissions team and campus tours; the beginning of one’s college experience.
The renovation included creating large gathering spaces, along with small intimate meeting spaces, collaboration rooms, a fireplace lounge area, call center, private offices, and a grand reception area. Multiple mechanical upgrade and some modernization were required for this renovation to bring the vision to life. Ellis’ design and construction team worked in close coordination with UWSP’s design team and the UWSP Foundation to meet the university standards as well as the Foundation’s needs.
