Site Clearing Begins for Mott Hospital

13 posts in this topic

This thread will be dedicated toward the construction of the C.S. Mott Children's & Women's Hospital Replacement Project. The building will be located on a surface lot where Med Ctr Dr. bends. No additional parking wll be added, however the existing parking structure that will connect to this building should sufficiently handle demands. The building is expected to be completed by 2010.

Construction trailers are already set up (one of them is 2 floors! sheesh). The light standards and other fixtures surrounding the parking lot are currently being removed. An address has been released for the building, but I was on the bus and went by it too fast to read it.

Man..UofM is constantly building. For all the 5 years I was at UofM (undergrad & grad), there was always at least 2-3 big projects going with amny more minor ones all over. There used to be graduate/married couple housing where those parking lots are. I think they were cleared out is the early 1990s.

BTW, when I was at UofM I was one of the student drivers for the bus system. It was a great job.

The parking lot is officially closed, and barriers have been moved onto the site.

Anybody seen the nice banner with the rendering put on the side of Parking A? Its H-U-G-E!! 4 stories to be exact.

Any idea what's to become of the Albert Kahn designed building that Mott is currently in?

I don't think it's Albert Kahn designed, rather designed by Albert Kahn and Associates. That building will remain, but probably serve other purposes.

LOL. It's just that I don't consider too much of the present work of AKA all that impressive compared to the remarkable work Albert Kahn did when he was alive. The existing Mott Hospital is mediocre at best.

just curious, but who is C.S. Mott anyway? He has a lot of stuff named after him, the Mott Foundation Mott Resivoir, this hospitol, the mott building in Flint, Mott College... Ive always wondered what exactly he did and who he was?

EDIT: Everyone probably thinks im a dumbass now, lol.

Since I have a family connection to this project (my brother is a project manager), is anyone going to be taking pictures? Wolve? Zach? C'mon, if this were GR, every girder would be carefully documented. :)

Well, I take the bus past it every day. You can expect blurry photos, LOL. But really though, I'll try and keep you updated on this. There's a parking structure adjacent to both sides of this site which should be nice for photos. My friend is also an RA at Markley and his window faces the site. But he'll only be there for the semester so you will see at most, excavation.
