the Project study

Spence Brothers completed the foundations for this enormous structure.  Work included footings, grade beams, pile caps, two-sided walls exceeding 20’, one-sided walls exceeding 20’, underpinning, formed elevated decks as well as slab-on-grade.

As we continued work on this and other major concrete projects such as the Ross School of Business concurrently, The University of Michigan continued to award Spence Brothers with additional concrete work, a testament to the outstanding trust in the capability of our firm.  These additional projects for the Mott Hospital included a concrete cast-in-place elevator tower & connector, slab-on-metal deck, roof top (14 stories) as well as leading edge concrete curbs & columns.  Overall, our contribution encompassed over 22,000 cubic yards of concrete and over 1,400 tons of reinforcing steel.

Throughout its completion, Spence Brothers’ expertise and attention to detail played a significant role in improving the project schedule and overall budget with successful value engineering of foundation and earth retention elements, during the construction of this state-of-the-art inpatient facility consisting of a 9-story clinic tower and a 12-story inpatient tower.
