"The Environmental Excellence award is not only a great opportunity for demolition contractors to spotlight one of their deserving projects, but additionally serves as a great promotional opportunity with clients.

It truly was a win-win for all parties involved."

Called the Power of Green Housing Development, the project, designed by Detroit architect Steven C. Flum, will transform 93 used shipping containers into a permanent, four-story condominium/apartment complex with 17 to 20 units. More
