Wisconsin Center Expansion

Wisconsin Center Expansion 

The Wisconsin Center is a convention and exhibition center located in downtown Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The center is part of a greater complex of buildings which includes the UW–Milwaukee Panther Arena and the Miller High Life Theatre.

The Wisconsin Center Expansion will bring the exposition hall to 300,000 contiguous square feet; add 24 new meeting rooms; include no fewer than 400 indoor parking spaces; add six loading docks; add an executive kitchen; and feature a spectacular fourth-floor ballroom with space for a minimum of 2,000 for a seated dinner.

Upon opening, the expanded Wisconsin Center is projected to support 2,300 full-time equivalent jobs throughout the state of Wisconsin.

GRAEF is proud to provide structural engineering on this historic Wisconsin project.

The groundbreaking was held in October 2021, and is expected to open May 2024.
