Project Overview: The Trinity Woods Residential and Senior Housing Development project was created as a result of a partnership between the School Sisters of Notre Dame (SSND), Mount Mary University, and the City of Milwaukee. This project came to fruition when the SSND relocated from their former residence in the Village of Elm Grove to a new 258,366 square foot, multi-generational community on the campus of Mount Mary University called Trinity Woods. This new facility creates space for a community that provides housing and support for SSND, aging seniors, and single mothers who attend the university as well as their children. The space also includes a daycare and early childhood center that are integrated into the existing University campus. Trinity Woods features 90 senior living apartments, 24 dormitory units for students with children, and 52 residences for the SSND. raSmith provided a variety of technical services to support the design and construction of the $40 million development project, including site civil engineering, structural engineering, land surveying, wetland and woodland evaluation, endangered resources review, traffic assessment, stormwater management, landscape architecture, grant writing, and municipal entitlement. The Trinity Woods building contains a primarily wooden frame construction on a precast concrete podium. Due to the sloping project site, the project contains a partially exposed basement area, which is made possible using concrete retaining walls and cantilevered basement walls.
