Sports & Rec

General Contractor:



Detroit, MI

Project Size:

185,000 sq. ft.

2020 Project of the Year!

Washington/Great Lakes JV was awarded the Pistons Performance Center by Christman/Brinker. Our JV team combined forces to complete both the Mechanical and Plumbing work on this project. Great Lakes Mechanical worked on the HVAC Equipment and Ductwork, while Ben Washington & Sons took on the Plumbing for the Performance Center. This 185,000 square foot building is the new home to the Detroit Pistons that includes both their headquarters and training facility. It houses an innovative locker/lounge room, full-service kitchen, weight room, film room, advanced training rooms, several meeting rooms, hot and cold plunge spas, zero gravity recovery float tanks, hydro pools, and latest performance technology.

GLM took a lead role in the MEP BIM Coordination. During this project, we installed boilers, breeching, pumps, RTU’s, ERU’s, dehumidification units, heat pumps, steam generation humidifiers, dry coolers, exhaust fans, kitchen hood, and a MUA unit. This project was completed in eighteen months, which lead to a very tight schedule. Our JV team aided the CM to provide a workable Construction Sequence and Schedule, as this project was on an eighteen-month time frame which led to a very tight schedule. Because of our limited on-site material storage, we staged bi-weekly deliveries of material to accomplish on-time deliveries. Our Washington/Great Lakes JV team worked hard to make this project so successful!
