University of Detroit Mercy and Team EME have worked together with ongoing City of Detroit renovation efforts.  UDM has completed numerous capital projects on each of their three campuses (McNichols, Corktown and Riverfront). Environmental Maintenance Engineers  has been a strong partner in this ongoing effort to rebuild Detroit legacy and anchor institutions.

As University of Detroit Mercy strengthens the McNichols neighborhood, Corktown and Riverfront campuses, it’s more likely the university will be able to attract and enroll more students for all of its academic programs. That’s why UDM’s presence in these communities is pivotal to the future of Detroit.

McNichols Campus:   Revitalization of the Livernois and McNichols Neighborhood Corridor is building the case that UDM is an important anchor institution in Northwest Detroit. Team EME was a key partner in the renovation of the Chemistry Building, a UDM “legacy building”.  The 84-year-old-building received a major interior facelift with new ceilings, newly painted walls, and porcelain tiled walls and floors in the hallways and other areas. The three-story building now has a new heating and air-exchange system, including central air conditioning.

Riverfront Campus:   EME also worked at Dowling Hall and the Law Library near the Greektown area of downtown Detroit. The University of Detroit Mercy bought a former firehouse originally constructed in the early 1900s. The building still boasts its old red firehouse doors, and the lookout tower. It is located at 585 Larned Street. The two-story facility will house 6,000 square feet of space for 10 legal aid clinics for UDM.

Corktown Campus:   EME has assisted with improvements to the School of Dentistry classroom building. The UDM School of Dentistry is one of two in the State of Michigan. One-third of all dentists in Michigan have graduated from the university’s Dental School and nearly half of the graduating class remains in Michigan. The Corktown campus is important because the urban context at the University of Detroit Mercy has always mattered. The Jesuits and Sisters of Mercy have from the University’s earliest beginnings, nearly 130 years ago, focused on its role of service to the city.
