FRESH DESIGN FOR THE FUTURE

A NEW FLAGSHIP LOCATION FOR COMERICA BANK

Sachse Construction was hired as the General Contractor for a ground-up Comerica Bank branch in Southfield, MI. This location was unique in that it was built using brand-new design plans. Today, the Southfield location serves as the new flagship design for future Comerica Bank projects.

The team began construction just a few days before the coronavirus pandemic swept the nation, causing construction progress to come to a halt for some time. Site shutdowns and multiple material delays had a significant impact on the project schedule. When it was safe to return to the project site, the team’s coordination expertise and pristine communication skills ensured all materials arrived on site and were properly installed before the location’s grand opening.

One feature that was particularly challenging to the team was the prefabbed diebold safe. First, the team had to get approved shop drawings. Once the material was fabricated and delivered to the project site, the team had to coordinate the installation of each individual panel via crane. Once inside, the team was able to assemble the pieces and set the safe in place.

Despite unforeseen — and unavoidable — setbacks, Sachse Construction remained diligent and delivered a beautiful space to the Comerica Bank team.
