Granger continues to be preferred constructor for higher education
Construction is underway on the campus of Ferris State University in Big Rapids, Michigan. Earlier this year, FSU selected Granger Construction to build the new four-story North Residence Hall. When completed, the facility will provide more modern housing options for undergraduate students.
This 125,000 square foot building, located in the heart of campus, is intended to create a “Journey of Independence” for freshmen as they transition to campus life. The hall is located near student support services such as the FLITE Library, University Center and Quad Café.
The $28 million hall will open for occupancy in August 2017, providing 200 bedrooms and 100 bathrooms for 400 students, along with single units for Resident Assistants and the Hall Director. To enhance the living-learning experience, the first floor will include classrooms, a mail room, game room, study areas and other gathering spaces; floors 2-4 will consist of residential suites.
Disassembly of a communications tower on the site began July 18. Site work started the week of August 1. Crews have begun digging out the basement, and the first concrete pours will happen soon.
