The Detroit Masonic Temple

The Detroit Masonic Temple is the world's largest Masonic Temple. Located in the Cass Corridor of Detroit, Michigan, at 500 Temple Street, the building serves as a home to various masonic organizations including the York Rite Sovereign College of North America. The building contains a variety of public spaces including three theaters, three ballrooms and banquet halls, and a 160 by 100 feet clear-span drill hall. Recreational facilities include a swimming pool, Handball court, gymnasium, bowling alley, and a pool hall. There are also numerous lodge rooms, offices, and dining spaces as well as a hotel section, 80 rooms total, available to any noble of the mystic shrine or blue lodge mason, though none, however, are in usable condition currently. Architect George D. Mason designed the whole structure as well as the Masonic Temple Theatre, a venue for concerts, Broadway shows, and other special events in the Detroit Theater District. It contains a 55-by-100-foot stage, one of the largest in the country.

 

RAM Construction Services performed an array of exterior masonry and steel restoration services including restoring old ornamental limestone statue cages, I-beam reconditioning, resetting stone panels that have pushed away from the façade over the years and also repaired thousands of feet in stone and brick tuckpointing.  With the aging of the building and the delicate nature of the stone, this project had multiple challenges that took the entire team to manage carefully and complete on time.  The Masonic Temple has events going on all year long so working around the event details, traffic, etc. forced constant communication between the field staff, management and ownership.  In the end, the work was installed with the upmost quality and integrity and left the Masonic Temple Association with a feeling of relief and happiness that their building will become beautiful and stable again!

 

RAM Construction Services is proud to play a role in the revitalization of Detroit. Please stay tuned for updates!
