Marquette University Law School

Milwaukee, WI

Project Overview

Home to Milwaukee’s only law school, Marquette University decided its current facility no longer suited today’s students. Opus Development Company, LLC called upon raSmith to help make this vision a state-of-the-art reality for the higher education institution. The project consisted of the new school building with underground parking and a surface parking lot “J.”

While engineering the site design, raSmith’s team encountered some unique challenges. The design needed to incorporate the property’s other buildings and retain a grove of trees with sentimental value to university staff. Other challenges included a significant amount of grade change and considerable, existing infrastructure with unknown location and elevation.

The $85 million Eckstein Hall is now a pillar of Marquette University and the civic community, reflecting the success of this project.
