NCRC Lab Renovation Moves Ahead

A $4.375 million renovation project for the University of Michigan Electron Microbeam Analysis Laboratory was authorized by regents at their Dec. 13, 2012 meeting. The renovation will take place in UM’s North Campus Research Complex (NCRC), the former Pfizer facility on Plymouth Road.

Specifically, the lab will be located in 8,900 square feet on the ground floor and first floor of Building 22. Currently the lab is housed in the Space Research Building and the Carl A. Gerstacker Building on UM’s north campus.

Renovation is expected to be finished in the winter of 2014 and will support about 10 construction jobs during the work, according to a staff memo. The project will be funded with resources from UM’s College of Engineering and Medical School.

This report was filed from the Michigan Union’s Anderson room on UM’s central campus, where the regents held their December meeting.
