Lakeshore Taking Shape


The Lakeshore Housing project at the University of Wisconsin-Madison is now about 50% complete.   According to project manager Andy Noll, it’s one of the highest-quality projects he’s ever worked on. “Miron Construction is doing a first-class job,” said Andy. The building will provide 426 new beds; a multi-purpose room; a brand-new food-service facility;  a market place with convenience stores; a satellite health clinic; and most importantly, a place to buy Babcock ice cream.  The design is centered around views to nearby Lake Mendota. On a recent site visit, Andy was impressed with one of the interior ceilings and the labyrinth of  steel stud framing and stainless steel exhaust ductwork in the kitchen/servery area. “Even though it will eventually be covered with drywall,” he said, “I was impressed by the  beauty of the studwork in the domed ceiling. Solid and well-built, this building should be around for a long time.”  Mackey Mitchell’s design team includes: Dan Mitchell, Gwynn Zivic, Greg Frankenfeld, Rachel Raterman, Andy Noll, Gregory Keppel, and Clint Smith.
