In August of 2010, Granger Construction completed building a new East Campus Housing Suite at Ferris State University.

This project involved demolition of seven two-story buildings which had served campus housing needs since 1955. Granger’s team then built three¬†separate housing units located on the same property as the original buildings.

The new housing suites are three-story structures with a residential character. They feature two- and four-bedroom units, for a total of 300 bedrooms. Each unit also includes comfortable common spaces such as kitchens and living rooms.

The building exteriors were constructing using long-lasting, low-maintenance brick and stone, metal panels and asphalt shingles.

East Campus Suites is the first LEED certified project on campus, achieving LEED Gold status though only Silver was required. 75% of the work on this project was completed by LOCAL laborers.
