Welcome to Facilities Planning at University of Michigan-Dearborn.
The Mission of the University of Michigan-Dearborn, Office of Facilities Planning is to use our expertise and resources to program, design, and construct a quality physical environment which supports the campus community's quest to achieve full academic potential. We pursue these tasks with deliberate attention to matters of safety, aesthetics, functionality, and budget with a commitment to the integrity of the total campus design.
Fairlane Center South Active Learning Classrooms
Classrooms 257 and 272 in FCS were recently renovated and transformed from standard classrooms into active learning classrooms. For the particular CEHHS discipline taught in these rooms, the furniture was replaced with mobile and nesting tables, new mobile student chairs with bottom book racks, a mobile podium, and new whiteboards. All of the room finishes were refreshed and much needed electrical outlets and data ports were added.
Fairlane Center North, conversion to a building for instructional use
The Fairlane Center North building is currently under construction to upgrade the building components, required by the Michigan Bureau of Fire Services (MBFS), so the building can be approved for instructional use. Currently, the building meets code as an office and training facility. This project will prepare the facility so additional classrooms can be created in the building once enrollment growth nears existing capacity.
