Renaissance Center

 
The Fourth of July weekend proved to be an exciting time. RAM Construction Services was contracted to install over 93,000 square feet of an anti-skid epoxy overlay waterproofing system on three (3) streets which surround the Renaissance Center, now serving as General Motor’s World Headquarters, located in the heart of downtown Detroit, MI. The anti-skid epoxy system was selected and installed on Beaubian Street, Atwater Street, and Renaissance Drive West in order to preserve and protect the suspended concrete slabs which act as the roof to below grade parking structures.
 
The high volumes of traffic these roads absorb during normal business days and events on the weekends created a situation where RAM was only allowed to close the roads starting on Thursday, July 3rd and they had to be reopened prior to the morning of Monday, July 7th. This large of an installation in this condensed timeframe had never before been accomplished by RAM Construction Services. The RAM team was up to the challenge and made all of the necessary arrangements in order to achieve such a monumental task. Over 120 tons of aggregate and 7,000 gallons of epoxy were delivered to the site and three installation crews and equipment were scheduled for the weekend. RAM shut down the streets on Thursday evening at 7 p.m. and began the surface preparation. Material was staged throughout the jobsite so installation was a continuous operation and shut down time for material needs was minimized. After the crews work diligently throughout the night, the first layer of the system was completed by noon on Friday. The crew got some well-deserved rest in preparation for installation of the second layer which began early Saturday morning. The second layer was completed by Saturday evening and the end was in sight. The crew returned Sunday morning to final sweep and thoroughly cleaned the entire area. The team completed the job on time and presented an outstanding product to the client. Thanks to proper planning, hard work, and a commitment to the RAM way, the project was a great success and serves as a bench mark for future endeavors.
