The AssemblyDetroit, MI

Sachse Construction managed the renovation of The Assembly, a 4-story, mixed-use facility in Detroit, MI. The adaptive resuse and historic renovation encompassed apartment buildouts on the fourth and fifth floors of the building, with the first through third floors being tenant white box space.

As the building was a former dry goods storage facility, the building’s structure contained fragile areas that required reinforcing and special attention. Additionally, the building was renovated under historic codes, so modern improvements were approved or modified to meet the historic requirements. This specific challenge strengthened the project team’s communication and collaboration as adhering to historic codes required a full coordination effort from the owner, architect, and Sachse Construction team.

The facility provides housing for Detroiters and and office space for commercial tenants with the bonus of featuring an incredible view of the downtown city scape.
