CEI Helps With Remembering Mr.Van!

In February, CEI was called on to the roof of the Art Van Headquarters in Warren, MI. They were asked to do something out of the normal scope of work. CEI service crews took to the roof to help hang a poster in remembrance of Art Van Elslander.

Art Van Elslander was a Detroit icon and the founder of Art Van Furniture. Mr. Van worked his way up from humble beginning to owning one of the nations largest furniture companies. He donated a good portion of his fortune to the city of Detroit. He helped keep alive the Thanksgiving parade and well as feeding the hungry and healing the sick.

Art Van Elslander had a big heart for Detroit and will be missed greatly. CEI was honored to be apart of remembering him with helping hang the banner.

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!
