Project Spotlight: Saline Recreation Center

CEI completed a re-roof and wall panel project this past year at Saline Recreation Center. The project consisted of a flat roof job with EPDM and metal wall panels. The wall panels are definitely the highlight of the job as the cover about half of the building. The panels were made of a blue insulated metal and were crafted in-house at CEI’s sheet metal shop.

The Saline Rec Center is a host to amazing facilities for the people in the area. CEI was happy to provide a quality roof and wall panels to help keep the facility up to standard.

Project Spotlight: Comerica Park- Pepsi Porch

Opening day for the baseball season is just over the horizon. For Detroit Tigers fans this means many summer days spent sitting at Comerica Park and for some, it means to be hanging out on the Pepsi Porch!

The Pepsi Porch was a sheet metal project completed by CEI in 2014. The project included panels for the 416 bar rooftop. The renovation was small for Comerica Park and it was a small project for CEI. It was still complex and interesting showing off the sheet metal craftsmanship CEI is known for. The unique and new space for fans to enjoy the game. The improved Pepsi porch added plenty of new seating for fans back in 2014 and has been put to good use since then.

MLB.com did a video about the Pepsi porch back during its construction. It discusses all the features that were included for fans and shows some of CEI’s in-progress work during the time.

CEI is looking forward to warmer weather and baseball season. Go Tigers!

Project Spotlight: Spartan Stadium South End Zone

CEI finished up a sheet metal job in 2017 at Spartan Stadium. The south end zone of MSU’s football field was being remodeled to keep up with the number of fans who visit every game day. At the job, CEI installed composite panels. The project was short and small. It ran quickly spanning from the beginning of March into April.

“We had everything we needed to start the job and it is one of my favorite teams.” says CEI’s foreman on the job.

 

According to Ganger Construction, The single story addition was 20,000 square feet, it included 236 bathrooms and multiple new concession stands for fans and students. As well as, new ticket gates set away from the stadium to meet safety concerns.

Project Spotlight: Biological Science Building

The Biological Science Building (BSB) located in Ann Arbor is one of the most unique roofing and sheet metal projects in CEI’s history. Started in 2016, the project has taken well over a year and is still being actively worked on. The 300,000 gross square foot building, will be used for a variety of student resources including research laboratories, classrooms, vivarium services, and the four museums. It also has connections to the current Life Sciences Building.

The project included new construction of a hot rubber roof, fully tapered and fully adhered with reinforced rubber. The second half was a sheet metal dome. As seen in the pictures the dome was created with galvanized 90 degreed marine grade plywood and 22gage bronzed stainless steel.

“I was ecstatic to have received the opportunity to apply myself in such a manner and thankful. Also relieved that I was able to accomplish the task of roofing an igloo in the middle of winter.” -Bill Ryan, Sheet Metal Foreman

 

Project Spotlight: Ford Fairlane Town Center

The Fairlane Town Center is a located in Dearborn, MI. The former mall has been converted to office spaces for Ford Motor Company while they begin work on their 10-year project for two large campus headquarters. The Fairlane building was in need of small renovations of canopies over multiple entrances. CEI bid the Fairlane project in 2017 and have been working hard at it since.

A smaller project in size, it involves work only on a few entrance canopies. Each canopy involves interior and exterior composite wall panels with a small section of TPO roof on the top. The project is a big one for CEI because it is the first project that CEI is crafting there own composite panels. Over the course of 2017, CEI has been piecing together a composite panel shop. This adds a huge new division to CEI existing sheet metal shop. Ford Fairlane is the putting this new shop to work and the results are fantastic.
