Vrakas/Blum sponsors new business building at University of Wisconsin-Whitewater

The University of Wisconsin-Whitewater (UW-Whitewater) recently announced the opening of Timothy J. Hyland Hall, home to the university’s
College of
Business
and Economics.  The construction of Hyland Hall was co-sponsored by the local CPA firm of Vrakas/Blum.

Hyland Hall, named after Timothy J. Hyland, a 1982 accounting graduate who made a significant monetary contribution to the building, opened its doors to students at the beginning of the fall 2009 semester at UW-Whitewater.  The 180,000 square-foot, $41.5 million building is more than twice the size of the former business building and offers 50 percent more classroom space.  The building also includes 34 flat and tiered classrooms, three computer labs, two 150-seat lecture halls, one seminar room, and four student project rooms.

 

“Considering all the extraordinary talent produced by the
College of
Business
and Economics over the years, much of which has benefited Vrakas/Blum, co-sponsoring the construction of Hyland Hall was an easy decision for us to make,” said James A. Holmes, CPA, president and managing shareholder of Vrakas/Blum.  “I am confident this new building will result in an even higher level of education offered to students of the
College of
Business
and Economics.  Seeing the vision of the university come to life is truly remarkable.”

 

Hyland Hall is located at the center of the UW-Whitewater campus.  Its location is designed to integrate the college within the campus while offering accessibility to the public for business outreach programs, conferences, and other events held at the building.
