Carroll University’s multi-million dollar science building expansion is going before the City of Waukesha Plan Commission this week.
University officials would like to see the expansion completed by fall 2016, but it still has to go through some steps before construction can begin. The site plan and architecture plan will be reviewed by the Plan Commission at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday at City Hall, 201 Delafield St.
The multi-story building will be about 50,000 square feet and will cost about $22 million to $24 million. One story will be below ground level; three stories will be above ground level.
The building will be on the northeast corner of College Avenue and Barstow Street.
Maxon Hall, which now occupies that site and houses classrooms, faculty offices and the environmental science program, will be demolished to make way for the new building, which will extend closer to College Avenue to the south and to Carroll’s Rankin Hall to the east.
