Dental School

Milwaukee, WI

The Dental School of this prestigious Midwestern university sought a facility that would support its unique approach to learning in every way possible. Its new curriculum - an integrated, case-based approach - required a patient-centered clinical environment that would closely model a modern dental practice.

While funding was being secured through state-issued bonds, matching funds from Marquette and federal support, Boldt was chosen as construction manager.

Working with Kahler Slater architects, we constructed a three-story, 126,000 sq. ft. facility housing a dental clinic, simulation lab, and research and graduate program areas. The school's informatics and technology center offers a lecture hall, lounge area and space for practicing with instruments, while offices and conference rooms for administration and faculty comprise the uppermost floor.

The light-filled atrium entryway, outdoor courtyards, and green spaces make this award-winning, patient-centered facility a comfortable, pleasant place to learn and teach, while providing a valuable outreach service to the community.
