Facilities Master Plan: Schematic Design Report

The public was invited to attend a series of community meetings to help inform the development of a schematic plan for Olbrich Botanical Gardens’ public buildings. Olbrich worked with an architectural firm, HGA, to evaluate its building space needs. It’s probable that final recommendations may include addition(s) and/or renovations of the current buildings to better accomplish Olbrich’s mission and better serve its visitors.

Olbrich asked for input from neighbors, visitors, members, users, and other stakeholders. A series of five public meetings were held between January 15 and May 20 to gather input and feedback.

Throughout the process, this webpage will feature up-to-date information, including meeting notes, so those who are unable to attend the meetings can stay informed. The website also offers a way to provide input and comments.

Exploration Begins on Garver Option

and Olbrich Building Space Needs

The City of Madison is releasing a request for qualifications for an architectural firm to work with Olbrich Botanical Gardens to explore ways to meet its current and future building space needs to better accommodate the public. An additional request is being released to investigate the possibility of stabilizing the Garver Feed Mill building core to be used as a garden support and storage facility for Olbrich Gardens and Madison Parks. These requests are the first steps in an exploratory process which will involve assessing needs, meeting sustainability standards, conducting feasibility studies, community input on possible solutions, and ultimately evaluation of costs and possible funding options.
