Dane County will replace the Alliant Energy Center’s barns with multi-use pavilions in a $24 million project set to begin early next year.
Dane County Executive Joe Parisi said Tuesday that the county will award a Middleton construction company a nearly $20.7 million contract to build the pavilions.
The project is pending funding approval from the Wisconsin State Building Commission and the Dane County Board of Supervisors.
Middleton-based Miron Construction will build the pavilions that will create 290,000 square feet of multi-use space on the footprint of the Alliant Energy Center’s existing barns, according to a news release from Parisi’s office.
Demolition of the barns is expected to begin next year, with the project’s estimated completion in time for the 2014 World Dairy Expo.
