The University of Michigan North Quad
Residential and Academic Complex

Ann Arbor, Michigan

The University of Michigan completed construction of the North Quad shared living and learning environment in the summer of 2010. The project is a 360,00 square foot facility at the corner of Huron and State Streets in downtown Ann Arbor.

Walbridge Aldinger, the construction manager, contracted with PEA to provide control surveys for this three year construction project. The two L-shaped 10+ story buildings had to be rotated to fit inside the right-of-way lines while at the same time fit a portion of the original building facade. PEA used the architectural design for outline of the building to fit the building inside the property while at the same time integrating a 100-foot wide portion of the original building facade into the new construction.

PEA provided control for the column line construction and control lines for each floor as they were constructed. PEA provided surveying for numerous site contractors for the placement of the utilities, the new paving of Washington, Huron and State Streets that replaced the original curb and sidewalks on the site.
