On November 8, 2013, the Wisconsin Department of Administration selected Zimmerman Architectural Studios Inc. based in Milwaukee, WI as the architectural and engineering (A&E) firm for the Babcock Hall renovation and Center for Dairy Research (CDR) addition project.
Zimmerman and W.M. Sprinkman Corporation, a dairy processing and engineering design firm, partnered on the bid and will work together on the project which is set to break ground in Summer 2015. A final contract between Zimmerman and the State should be signed in the next few weeks.
To assist in the design process, CDR has also established an industry advisory group. This group includes more than 10 industry experts who have volunteered to provide input during the design and construction phase of the project. Their insights will be invaluable in creating a world-class facility.
