Operation Fresh Start

Provide a durable and cost-effective re-use of an existing facility

Operation Fresh Start, a non-profit organization, was established in Madison, WI in the 1970’s. They work with disadvantaged youths (ages 16 - 22), providing educational and employment services. Their existing headquarters was a well-used building on the east side of the city with limited space, which compromised the number of young people they could assist.

The organization found a former church campus and brought in EUA to design a re-purposed center that will double the amount of youths served. The property has office space as well as a kitchen, educational space and a construction training area.

EUA provided design and construction administration services at a reduced rate, while our MEP and CM partners engaged youth throughout the construction process as part of Operation Fresh Start’s job
training program.
