Sneak Peak of First-of-its-Kind LIFTBuild Technology in Detroit
Join CREW Detroit for its annual Hard Hats + Heels event, this time featuring The Exchange in Detroit’s celebrated Greektown neighborhood. The Exchange is a 16-story residential tower – and the first high-rise construction project in North America to be built using new LIFTBuild construction technology. The Exchange is LIFTbuild’s proof-of-concept prototype project, utilizing a vertical manufacturing approach for building assembly. Simply put, the Exchange project is being built from the top down. Be among the first to witness the process in action.
Prior to the tour, attendees will meet in the Model Center, across the street from the development site, for a presentation on the project, process and progress. Following the site tour, a happy hour, with complimentary appetizers and drinks, will take place on the third floor of the 1300 Broadway building.
Attendees will need to bring a hard hat, safety glasses and vest, and wear fully enclosed shoes. Some PPE will be available but supplies are limited.
