University of Michigan seeks $9M expansion and renovation of Schembechler Hall
The University of Michigan is seeking a $9 million expansion and renovation to Schembechler Hall, a South Campus facility that is used by the football program and houses the school's sports museum.
U-M officials will seek permission for the project, which will be supported by athletic department funds, from the U-M Board of Regents at the monthly meeting on Thursday.
The proposed project will create a new entrance to the building, adding about 7,000 square feet. An existing 7,000 square feet will be renovated during the project.
The building currently contains locker, meeting and medical treatment rooms, training and weightlifting areas, administrative offices and the Margaret Dow Towsley Sports Museum. It also is used for football program news conferences.
The renovation will moderately affect parking, taking seven spots off-line.
The school has tapped Grand Rapids firm Integrated Architecture to design the project.
