Country Club of Detroit

Grosse Pointe Farms, Michigan

The Country Club of Detroit received a $6.3M renovation in 2016.  The McCarthy & Smith team provided construction management services for these Phase IIb improvements. The project scope encompassed the remodeling of a clubhouse wing with demolition of vintage 1930’s interior pool, underpinning of structural supports and re-enforcement of support structures. A new 6 lane bowling and lounge area was then constructed on lower level,  a new state-of-art fitness area and exercise space on main level, and a mezzanine level area currently used for spinning classes.  Additional improvements  included remodeling of men’s wet locker room, remodel for a new childcare room,  ADA improvements with a new elevator, bathroom upgrades, new windows in remodeled area, and upgraded side entrance for ease of access from parking lot. This project was featured in CAM Magazine’s October 2017 Special Issue and honored at the CAM Annual Meeting.

Urban Science Applications, Inc.

Detroit, Michigan

Urban Science office headquarters in the Renaissance Center underwent a renovation with a project value of $4 million. The project encompassed a four floor office build-out and a separate computer floor. During pre-construction, the team worked cooperatively with architect to provide estimates, explore pricing on materials, conduct constructability reviews and participate in mechanical and design reviews. For this particular project, material handling was a challenge throughout construction due to the limitation of using only one elevator after normal working hours to bring materials up to floors (28-32). In addition, safety conformance was a high priority while working in this multi-floor, tower building that was occupied.
