The new center is set to undergo a renovation of approximately 24,000 square feet while constructing an additional 8,000 feet for athletic medicine, rehabilitation, wellness and nutrition for the Wolverines’ football program.
Schembechler Hall, named after the famous former head football coach Bo Schembechler, will get renovations to team meeting and equipment rooms as well as administrative spaces. According to the release, construction is scheduled to be completed in the winter of 2019.
Back in February, the Board of Regents approved plans to renovate the Oosterbaan Field House as well, which will combine with Schembechler Hall to create a singular performance center for Wolverines football.
