U-M’s Ross School of Business to Undergo $95M Addition, Renovation


Construction has officially started on renovations at the Stephen M. Ross School of Business at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, with a scheduled completion in summer 2016.

The $95-million project includes renovations to approximately 75,000 square feet of existing space, along with an additional 104,000 square feet of new construction.

Changes include a comprehensive renovation to the Kresge Business Administration Library; demolition of the Computer and Executive Education Building; construction of a new academic building; and the addition of exterior finishes to Sam Wyly Hall, the Business Administration Executive Dormitory, and the Hill Street parking structure.

The renovations will create a unified look for the Ross School complex of buildings, say officials from Detroit-based Walbridge, which is serving as the project’s construction manager. Walbridge is also responsible for overseeing the current construction of the Munger Graduate Residences, and the renovation of two dorms inside the Michigan Union.

New York City-based architect Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates is serving as the lead designer for the Ross School of Business project.
