The Education Building Project will renovate nearly 71,000 GSF in the Education Building located at 1000 Bascom Mall. The project includes the demolition of about 17,000 square feet of space added in 1950 for the Art Department, and a 37,000 GSF replacement addition of approximately four stories, plus basement and sub-basement, on the building’s east side. This project also includes reconstruction of the rear north facade and a new green vegetated terrace plaza outdoor space. The project is the first State owned Energy Star Rated building in Wisconsin.

In June of 2011, The Education Building received LEED Platinum Certification and became an Energy Star rated building. This was the second building on the UW-Madison campus to achieve LEED Certification. LEED New Construction (version 2.2) was the rating system pursued for this renovation and addition and earned a total of 52 points.
The Education Building has a green roof which helps reduce the quantity and rate of storm water runoff.
The Education Building is the first State-owned Energy Star-rated building in Wisconsin.
Approximately 85% of the new wood content is Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified wood – which means the wood comes from a forest being managed in an environmentally responsible manner.
Occupant controls for lighting and thermal comfort are located throughout the building so that occupants can control the settings for personal comfort while remaining as energy efficient as possible.
