Karl Jewish Community Campus
Fox Point, Wisconsin
Irgens served as Development Manager for this 300,000 square foot expansion and renovation project. The Irgens team reported directly to a diverse volunteer group representing the client and also had to consider a large group of varied stakeholders that included six independent agencies, two municipalities, nearly 100 residential neighbors and project donors. Irgens successfully lead this varied group with divergent interests through the development process. Communication and project coordination were critical to help Irgens guide decisions and maintain budgets and timelines despite project challenges in the areas of compliance, entitlements, fundraising and more.
“Irgens was a counselor to the board, responsible for formulating strategies to gain community support and approval by the various constituencies involved. They handled this complex situation brilliantly.”
