Located in Grand Rapids, MI Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park opened in April 1995. Since then the facility has grown drastically with approximately 600,000 visitors annually. The latest set of improvements began in October of 2017. Areas of this project that Ram Construction Services was involved with include a new transportation center, education center and amphitheater.
Ram Construction Services installed below grade waterproofing on the amphitheater and transportation center along with fluid-applied waterproofing on exposed walls and roof of the transportation center. On the education center RAM installed a hot-rubberized waterproofing system on the 15,000 sf roof deck. The roof deck will also act as an outdoor terrace in which RAM will install the pedestals, precast curbs and pavers. With the facility being open during construction, safety for the public was the utmost importance.
