About this Project

Eastern Michigan University is located 35 miles west of Detroit and was founded in1849. The school is home to nearly 17,000 undergraduates and 3,400 post graduatestudents. The new athletic center for sports medicine and training facilities is 60,000 square feet of space that will house the sports medicine, performance, and equipment operations areas. Additionally, the facility has locker rooms, coaches’ offices, and meeting spaces for use by the football team. The scope of work for RAM Construction is expansion joint sealant on the interior areas of the building and installing a spray applied air barrier covering approximately 68,000 square feet of space on the exterior. Air barrier work includes a peel and stick detail component that is applied to corners, transitions, window frames, and other tight areas to complete the seal. Foreman Todd Jacobs says, “The strips can be difficult to handle if you don’t have experience, it can easily stick itself together and there’s not much you can do about it except start over.”

We were honored to help build a monument in recognition of our fallen Michigan State Troopers. Being a part of this memorial is much more than just work for us, it is about giving back to those that spent every day risking their lives for our safety.

The casino was entirely renovated from a dusty rose colored exterior to a sharp red, brown, and green aesthetic that mirrors Soaring Eagle’s rustic vibe. All in all, we removed and replaced hundreds of thousands of feet of caulking.
