The Northern Center Renovation
Through this renovation, NMU intends to create a new and modern venue for the university, region and Upper Peninsula that attracts students and the community. To increase student traffic to the facility, the student enrichment and organization space will be enhanced and made more visible. Also a student activity zone will be created for students to relax and socialize outside of class. To enhance the facility’s conference function, an enlarged conference venue will be constructed, existing break out and meeting rooms will be upgraded and larger, more welcoming pre-function and networking space will be incorporated. A new exterior façade will be constructed at the main entrance to the building creating a truly unique, signature type facility and some long term maintenance items such as a new chiller and main electrical switchgear will be installed.
