University of Michigan New Engineering Building

Ann Arbor, Michigan – 572 Tons

Creating the effect of a contemporary castle, the University of Michigan commissioned the construction of an elaborate Engineering Building to become the center piece of its north campus.

Under contract with Sorenson Gross of Flint, Douglas Steel fabricated and erected 572 tons of steel framing. The main structure towers 92 feet above its base with its steep angular roof and flared soffit. Multi-level interconnecting pods and connector links spread out below covering a total of 78,400 square feet.

When completed, this edifice stands as a stunning tribute to the ingenuity and creativity of the School of Engineering.
