University of Michigan – Football Performance Center

Ann Arbor, MI


In May 2019, the University of Michigan celebrated the grand opening of their new $14.8 million Football Performance Center located inside Schembechler Hall. The project included the renovation of approximately 24,000 sq. ft. inside Schembechler Hall while constructing an additional 8,000 sq. ft. for athletic medicine, wellness, nutrition, rehabilitation, and training for the football program. In addition to new team meeting rooms, administrative spaces, and support staff locker areas, the Football Performance Center includes two SwimEx resistance pools, a warm water spa, a cold water spa, a free-standing Hydroworx 350 treadmill and resistance unit, four individual stainless steel recovery tubs, a sensory-deprivation or “float” tank, and a cryogenic workout recovery pool.

The exterior was updated to match the facade at Glick Field House, the team's indoor practice facility. The interior included an overhaul of the Towsley Museum with the addition of an area honoring Michigan Football Legends as well as new exhibit, office, and recruiting spaces.
