UM Hospital Fire Alarm Upgrades OK’d

Upgrades to the fire alarm systems at the University Hospital and Taubman Health Care Center were approved by University of Michigan regents at their May 17, 2012 meeting.

The upgrades, which are expected to cost $3 million, will connect the systems in both buildings to provide flexibility for future expansions, according to a staff memo. The two buildings, located on East Medical Center Drive on UM’s medical campus in Ann Arbor, were constructed in 1986 and cover a total of 2.3 million square feet for inpatient and outpatient medical services. The project is expected to be finished by the summer of 2013.

This brief was filed from the Fairlane Center at UM’s Dearborn campus, where regents are holding their May meeting.
