A look at the CEI installed Metl-Span panels that transformed the exterior of the former MGM Casino building into the beautiful new facility now housing the Detroit Public Safety Headquarters!
This project designed by the architects at SmithGroupJJR used Metl-Span two inch insulated metal wall panels to capture a modern look on a budget. The Metal-Span panels allowed for an all in one application of the vapor barrier and insulation finished off with a low maintenance exterior that’s just as pleasing to the eye and as it was to the pocketbook. The detailed coordination efforts of general contractors White-Turner helped CEI and the other trades involved tackle the challenge of this mammoth installation project and add this prized piece to their showcases and to the City of Detroit’s!
This tile and wood batten roof project revived a tired roof system, bringing back its class and charm. The original tiles and hook system to secure them were removed, cleaned and inspected for defects. The tiles that met CEI’s standards were then set aside for re-installation. The roof decking was repaired, new underlayment, wood battens, and copper flashings were installed and then a mix of the reusable and new tiles was installed. The logistics of this overseas project and the re-use of most of the original tiles made this a challenging but unique project that will remain a feather in CEI’s cap for years to come.
After over a year of work, CEI has just finished up the details on their Soaring Eagle Casino job. The job was a huge re-roof project. It involved tearing off all the existing shingles and replacing it with a metal roof. The results turned out looking great!
