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 September 2021, construction continues to race to the finish line of completion. The structural concrete and structural steel work is complete while the exterior facade work is underway to enclose the building before winter. Much of the stone veneer is in place on the lower floors giving the exterior a monumental yet contemporary finish. Our concrete rainscreen is beginning on the west facade giving us a glimpse of the final finish of the upper floors.
Most of the interior wall framing is in-place and drywall is beginning on many of the walls. Utilities are being roughed-in ceilings and walls.The team is finalizing the design & bidding of the technology, AV & security systems along with the landscape and irrigation while continuing to pull together selections for the furniture, fixtures and equipment.
The building project is facilitated by Clark Construction of Lansing and multiple Flint-community contractors. It is expected to be completed by Fall 2022.
