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.
