carroll university - rankin hall historic renovation

Project Description: 

130 west college avenue, waukesha 

This is an existing building on the Carroll University Campus dating back to 1906.  The building interior had last been updated fully between the 1960’s and 1970’s.  As the University’s programs and students educational needs have changed over time, Carroll embarked on a complete gut and remodel of the interior and exterior.  This building is a local and Federal landmark and therefore eligible for historic tax credits.  Allume Architects was hired as a consultant to assist Carroll University with the State of WI tax credit process.  The project spanned a two year timeframe from 2016 – 2018.
