Doug Sabatke will be joining CALS as the college’s new Assistant Dean For Facilities, Planning, Health and Safety. In this position he will oversee the college’s facilities planning and development, space management, construction oversight and health, safety and emergency preparedness.

He comes to CALS from the UW-Madison Facilities Planning and Management department, where as an architect/engineer manager he was responsible for administering, planning, design and management of architectural projects with budgets ranging from $100,000 to $60 million. Many of the projects he has supervised involved CALS buildlings. These include new dairy facilities at the Arlington and Marshfield Agricultural Research Stations, the Mead Residence Hall at the Kemp research station, the Potato Storage Facility and the Hancock research station, the Short Course Dorm study.

“He brings a wealth of experience to this position and is already familiar with CALS needs and issues,” points out Ray Guries, CALS Executive Associate Dean.

Some of other projects include renovations of Chamberlin and Sterling Halls, the new Ogg Hall, and the Wisconsin Institute for Medical Research.
