RAM Construction Services is opening a new office in downtown Detroit which is expected to help augment the construction firm's growing workload in the Motor City's Central Business District.
"There are just so many opportunities in Detroit," says Erica Mazur, project manager for RAM Construction Services
. "It's great to be able to walk down the street and see the condition of the city improving. We love our role in it."
The Livonia-based, founded in 1918, was known as Western Waterproofing for many years until 2008 when it rebranded to RAM Construction Services. It has worked on a number of marquee projects downtown, including doing exterior work on the Book Cadillac Hotel, annual maintenance work on the Renaissance Center, and some interior work in the Chrysler Building.
RAM Construction Service employs about 200 employees and three interns in Michigan after hiring 10 people over the last year. The new office in the Chrysler Building will house six people. Mazur expects construction to begin this month and be finished in time for the Detroit Tigers Opening Day game in early April.
