University of Michigan Ross School of Business | Ann Arbor, Michigan
Treads / Pavers / Planter Curb
The University of Michigan’s expansion project for the Ross School of Business on the Ann Arbor campus included the addition of the new Jeff T. Blau Hall and renovations to the Kresge Business Administration Library. The project is comprised of 179,000 square feet of new state-of-the-art classrooms, student collaboration and study spaces, offices, and a redesigned digital library.
Almost 75% of the new Jeff T. Blau Hall was constructed from recycled material from the structure that once stood in its place. ASL Stone was able to source a very difficult to find and process green granite specified by KPF to match existing material for treads, pavers, and planter curb. As with many projects, ASL Stone traveled to the source (China) with the design and construction team, to verify product suitability and finish. Our team of experts leveraged knowledge and experience to determine the origin of existing granite and matched these new materials to achieve a unified finish.
