Lay Automotive Dyno Lab Renovation and Interior Improvements

Aristeo's University of MIchigan Lay Automotive Dyno Lab Renovation and Interior Improvements

Aristeo was hired to renovate 16,000 SF of existing graduate laboratory and office space for the University of Michigan's Lay Automotive Dyno Lab in 2017. The project, a $2,233,000 value, required that Aristeo leave the building operational throughout 13 months of demolition, abatement, and construction. 

Aristeo upgraded all interior finishes with new gypsum plaster over existing CMU walls, as well as: 

  • Installed acoustical ceilings
  • Installed new lab casework
  • Upgraded flooring
  • Installed interior storefronts to bring in more natural light
  • Provided life safety upgrades to building stair towers 
  • Upgraded mechanical and electrical systems
  • Renovated dynamometer test cells

With Aristeo's work, graduate students are able to conduct testing on the next generation of engines, including mixed fuel testing with compressed natural gas and methane. 

Aristeo has worked with Marathon since 2005 and has never had a recordable safety incident on any of our projects. Their dedication to safety and doing work right has made Aristeo a preferred contractor. We are impressed by the service Aristeo provides and will continue to recommend their team on upcoming projects. Marathon Petroleum Company LLC
