Michigan University

Beautiful and Complex Custom Precast Concrete at Gerstacker Grove

Ann Arbor, Michigan
Completed: September 2016


A series of sleek, artistic seat walls at the University of Michigan – designed by Stoss to create a luxurious and lively quad that can accommodate performances, events and everyday activities – stand as an example of the endless possibilities with Wausau Tile's custom precast concrete. The stunning Gerstacker Grove, located on the university’s North Campus, breathes new life into an underutilized area – where previously the most notable features were well-worn footpaths in the grass.

Featuring a unique central plaza surrounded by a green quad, Gerstacker Grove now includes sophisticated, continuous concrete seat walls that frame the walkways frequented by students and faculty, bringing unmatched strength and beauty to the heart of North Campus.

As the only manufacturer in the country with the capabilities to meet the unique needs of any complex custom concrete project, Wausau Tile meets the industry’s most highly-regarded quality standards with its custom precast concrete.
