DescriptionOriginally built in 1966, the Swan Building is home to several of Ferris State University's College of Engineering Technology programs. This renovation spans a portion of the building, known as the "Annex," that housed the Mechanical Engineering Technology, Welding Engineering Technology and Advanced Manufacturing Engineering Technology programs that had simply out grown their space. The Annex required major renovations including complete building mechanical, electrical, plumbing and life safety system upgrades, and the addition of a resistance lab, additional laboratory space for special purposes, along with a laboratory for dies and molds. The project included floor plan reconfigurations, an approximate doubling of space available for Welding laboratories, upgrade of building envelope and interior finishes as well as replacement of furniture, fixtures and equipment (FF&E). In addition, plumbing, electrical and mechanical systems were upgraded with energy efficient systems that now meet the programmatic requirements and reduce operational and maintenance costs. To better serve the students, a pedestrian bridge was located on the North side of the SWAN Building at the second floor, which serves the existing 5 story SWAN Building and the SWAN Annex.
