Kraus Transformation Groundbreaking

A groundbreaking celebration for the University of Michigan’s Edward Henry Kraus Building Transformation, designed and engineered by Ballinger, took place on Friday.

Excerpted from the University of Michigan Record:

Members of the campus community broke ground Friday on an addition to the 101-year-old Edward Henry Kraus Building, which will enable the School of Kinesiology to consolidate its programs and operations in one location beginning in the fall of 2020.

The $120 million project calls for a deep renovation of the existing 183,000-square-foot building, plus a 62,000-square-foot infill addition within an exterior courtyard.

Completed in 1915, the Kraus Building had housed the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology as well as the Department of Molecular, Cellular and Developmental Biology. Both of those departments have relocated to the new Biological Science Building, which opened this fall.

“The plans call for an 85-foot tall building with six floors above grade and one below grade that’s built into the slope of the land. The building would house radiology, rehabilitation, ambulatory surgical practices, rheumatology, cardiology, oncology and various offices and meeting rooms. There may also be an urgent care center at the location and a restaurant for patients and families.”
