When the State of Wisconsin made the decision to consolidate the five different Department of Revenue operations in the City of Madison, they needed a site with easy access for its employees and at the same time required that the new Department of Revenue headquarters be within reasonable proximity to the Capitol. The state was also looking for the most cost-effective answer to its needs.
The site is located adjacent to a major highway interchange and sits on a former landfill that was improperly zoned. Once given notice to proceed, The Alexander Company completed wetland mapping and obtained fill permits from the Army Corps of Engineers and the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, gained storm water detention and plan approval from the City of Madison, traffic study and signaling plan approval from the Wisconsin Department of Transportation and Dane County, and then designed the building and commenced construction in less then 3 months. The finished result is a building of distinctive character that is a prime example of The Alexander Company’s multi-faceted abilities.
