University of Michigan Intramural Sports Building (IMSB) Renovation

Ann Arbor, MI

Services provided on this project:

Architecture Overview:

The purpose of this project is to wholly renovate the existing facility. This is the first of three major facility renovations for Campus Recreation, all planned to improve Rec Sports facilities for the future. The renovation offers students more Group Ex space, more and better Cardio & Weights space, and renovated locker rooms, while maintaining the gymnasium and racquetball courts. The building remains true to its foundation while receiving new finishes, flooring, new insulated windows, and a much improved connectivity to the entire building. This building will for the first time be completely ADA accessible. No small feat for a building with 11 different floor levels!

Graphic Design Overview:

Through a tight partnership with the campus branding team, the environmental graphics and interior wayfinding signage at the University of Michigan’s IMSB building have been designed to create a cohesive appeal throughout this building and two additional campus rec centers. The program at the IMSB will highlight the building’s key architectural elements and history, which will be brought to life using photography and historical facts. The signage will set a precedence as it will go beyond traditional ADA requirements.
