Granger Construction continues work on Grawn Hall, the oldest building on the campus of Central Michigan University. Home to CMU’s College of Business Administration, Grawn Hall serves more than 4,000 students each year.
The $10.8 million project comprises a 6,600-square-foot, two-story addition on the west side of the building, including a new main entry and multifunctional space for lectures, events and group study. Renovation of the existing 16,200-square-feet will update corridors, add fire suppression, replace windows and provide new student service and collaboration spaces. Work on the project began May 9, with Phase One on track to be completed by late August 2016.
Granger recently avoided potential delay by discovering the designed air handling unit would not fit inside the building. Utilizing a corrected design, workers found a way to insert the unit into the building with less than an inch of clearance, avoiding any interruption in the construction schedule.
Work on Grawn Hall will continue throughout this summer and next, with completion scheduled for September 2017. View a video showing an architectural rendering of the completed project below.
