A fence with informative signs obscures the new CDIS job site at UW Madison


OREGON, WI, April 26, 2023 – Thysse Honored to Attend the Groundbreaking Ceremony for the New UW Madison School of Computer, Data and Information Sciences (CDIS) Building

Thysse had front row (okay, fourth row) seats as optimism and excitement filled the tent of distinguished guests, donors and partners at the CDIS build-site today. Quick name drop moment – Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers and Bucky Badger were also there. Jay Rothman, President of the University of Wisconsin System, hosted the event and shared the podium with colleagues and donors. Each remarked on the astonishing evolution of computer technology over the past half-century and stressed the significance of this massive investment in the future of the UW System, the State of Wisconsin, and our collective role in shaping the future for the world.

Thysse attended as a contributor to the CDIS project, continuing our longstanding relationship with UW Madison.  Thysse has been fortunate to partner on other campus facilities offering experiential design, facility branding, print, and fabrication services. Jason Thysse reacted positively about future partnership:

“To be involved in these huge, inspiring and important projects is wonderful. There’s a lot of work to do before this opens in 2025 and #TeamThysse is excited to help.”

The new CDIS building is just over 340,000 sq. ft., doubling the current CDIS capacity, and will become the most energy efficient building on UW Madison’s campus. The elements of sustainability include onsite solar energy generation, efficiency upgrades spanning all consumables and 25% site coverage with plants. These attributes allowed the facility to achieve LEED Platinum certification status – the highest green-building standard worldwide.  Take a virtual tour of the building at cdis.wisc.edu/building and learn more about us at Thysse.com.
