MILWAUKEE, WI, April 17, 2019 — Wisconsin Institute of Urology (WIU) has been awarded In Business Magazine’s 2019 Commercial Design Award for Best New Development or Renovation – Health Care. Celebrating Dane County’s influence on Wisconsin’s notable architecture, In Business Magazine’s annual Commercial Design Awards honor the best commercial design projects built in Wisconsin.
When asked about their new space, WIU Physicians remarked, “WIU’s vision was to build a facility that provides a uniquely welcoming, comfortable and valuable experience for our patients and a safe and uplifting environment for our talented teammates. EUA and Miron embraced this vision and delivered a fantastic facility. We thank them for their expertise and congratulate them on this design award.”
With a mission to provide high-quality and compassionate patient-centered care, WIU wanted a new facility that would reflect their commitment to providing world-class services to the New North region. The new 35,000 sq ft urology clinic and ambulatory surgery center brings together multiple leased locations with a design that supports WIU’s dedication to their patients.
According to the award feature in April’s In Business Magazine, one judge was taken by the view of the building upon entering, citing the use of striking canopies. “It’s a building that appears to reach out to the surrounding community, literally with open arms, with these open-entry canopies,” he remarked. “I appreciated the quality and detailing they brought to the front of the building. So often, we dread going into health-care environments because they are so sterile and institutional, and this seems to be a building that allows you to feel comfortable and welcomed.”
The award-winning project was designed by Eppstein Uhen Architects (EUA). Miron Construction was the general contractor and the team of engineers include GRAEF as the MEP engineer, McMahon Associates as civil and site engineers and Pierce Engineers serving as the structural engineer.
