The chemistry complex is a major piece of UW-Madison's current building boom

$220 million building boom on UW-Madison campus will modernize chemistry and agriculture facilities.  (Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, 4/5/2018)
Two floors of undergraduate instructional labs — a total of six teaching labs — will be added to a 10-level, 188,442-gross-square-foot chemistry teaching tower because the university came up with funding that did not exist when the design was approved. Those labs would have been unfinished shells for future construction if the funding had not come through when it did. 
New money generated by the university also will cover renovation of the Daniels chemistry building, modernizing and adding safety features to six undergraduate teaching labs original to the 1964 building. The Daniels renovation will include additional classrooms, student study spaces and offices for undergraduate chemistry staff.
