Michigan football will receive a facelift to its facilities as the UM Board of Regents approved a new football performance center in the Glenn E. Schembechler Hall Thursday.
The renovations are expected to cost $14.8 million for the 24,000-square-foot facility and an additional 8,000 feet will be added for rehabilitation and development purposes such as athletic medicine as well as a nutrition area.
The project also includes renovations to the team’s meeting room and administrative offices. On top of that, 46 on-site construction jobs will be created through Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates.
What does this mean?
This isn’t the first step toward facility improvements, because in February the regents approved to renovate Oosterbaan Field House, which will replace the roof and lighting. Since Schembechler Hall is connected to Oosterbaan Field House, the renovations will be together.
Construction and plan designs will begin immediately and further information will be delivered during the process.
