Firestone has recognized CEI for our outstanding efforts in quality roofing installations.

2018 Michigan Historical Preservation Award

A CEI sheet metal project was honored with the 2018 Michigan Historical Preservation Award. CEI along with the rest of the teams on the restoration project were all presented with the award at the end of March. The specific award given to the project was the Preservation Gem Award.  This award is given to completed projects within the last three years that focused on restoring one element of a building. This meaning the entire building is not being restored at the same time. CEI was a project participant on the restoration of the copper lanterns at University of Michigan’s West Hall. CEI worked hard to recreate the Lanterns at their in-house sheet metal shop and then installed them on-site.

MHPN featured the honorees on their facebook page last week.

They wrote,

“Today’s featured award is the West Hall Lantern Restoration, winner of a 2018 Preservation Gem Award. The lanterns marking the Denison Archway on the Albert Kahn-designed West Hall are one of the most prominent landmarks on the University of Michigan campus, ushering students onto the historic Diag since 1904. The copper-clad lanterns had suffered from weathering over the years, making restoration a priority for the University. The original copper cladding was carefully removed, restored, and re-installed over reconstructed and structurally strengthened framing, ensuring the longevity of these iconic lanterns. The restoration of the West Hall Lanterns is a fitting example of a building owner making the investment in a building to preserve its aesthetic and historic character for future generations.

In past years, CEI had installed a green roof onto the Kresge Business library. This zero floor green roof got an update along with the renovation of the rest of the building during the construction of Ross. It was reinstalled with plant material, repaired and updated to look great with the new building.


CEI was additionally contracted for the multiple elevation roofs at the Ross School. It was constructed of EPDM full tapered insulation and featured metal panels done by CEI’s very own sheet metal shop. Later in the project, Walbridge and other subcontractors looked to CEI for extra help on other scopes of work. The sheet metal shop made metal wall panels for the interior and exterior of the building.
