This project will construct approximately 280,000 gross square feet of space for the University of Michigan's new Athletics South Competition and Performance Project to become the future home for men’s and women’s track and field, cross country, lacrosse, soccer, and women’s rowing. A consolidated performance team center will provide specialized team spaces and shared resources for strength and conditioning, athletic medicine, a performance lab, meeting space and locker rooms. When completed, the development will allow hosting of home, regional, and national competitions, and use by students participating in recreational sports.

A new 160,000 SF multipurpose facility, built on 17 acres, will serve student-athletes involved with track and field, cross country, lacrosse, wrestling, tennis, rowing, and gymnastics. This facility will include:

  • An outdoor track venue that accommodates 2,000 spectators
  • A 100,000 SF indoor track facility for 1,000 fans
  • An outdoor lacrosse stadium to house 3,000 spectators
  • An indoor rowing facility that allows the team to train in competition conditions year-round
    Shared performance space, locker rooms, strength and conditioning facilities, meeting space and sports medicine facilities

This project involved a major pre-construction effort including multiple estimates for 6 buildings and outdoor facilities that comprise the state-of-the-art sporting complex. Granger utilized a 3-D estimating program to produce highly detailed cost estimates. Impressively, these estimates were within 3% of the comparison estimate produced by the University and 2% under budget on bid day.
