Construction Is Progressing
Kettering University officially broke ground Feb. 5, 2020. World-renowned architectural firm Stantec designed the building. Stantec has designed academic facilities in 37 states and provinces across North America.
As of March, the project is nearly 35% complete. The building excavation and foundations are more than 90% complete with retaining walls now around the service and loading dock entrance. The erection of the structural steel on the main building and the Connector are nearly complete and work on detailing of exterior walls and openings is ongoing. Concrete floors have been poured on the first and second floors and a portion of the third floor. Work is happening on the building's exterior facades with wall framing and curtainwall systems taking shape. Mechanical, electrical and fire protection contractors continue to rough-in their systems in the basement and first levels.
The building project is facilitated by Clark Construction of Lansing and multiple Flint-community contractors. It is expected to be completed by Fall 2022.
