There was a vision to transform Detroit’s international riverfront, the face of the city, into a beautiful, exciting, safe, accessible world-class gathering place for all.
The $500 million dollar redevelopment of the riverfront area included construction of a three mile long river walk, part of which was adjacent to the General Motors Renaissance Center Buildings in downtown Detroit. The new GM Plaza area needed to be raised more than 4 meters in the area formerly used as a parking lot.
As part of General Motors’ renovation of the Renaissance Center for its world headquarters, GM created the GM Plaza and Promenade, a spectacular riverfront space that has quickly become a new city gathering spot and signature event venue.

Even when things got tough and jobsites were hell, Tony could always maintain a smiling positive attitude.
As Tony has learned new skills and moved up through the ranks at EPI, he’s been a valuable asset to the team.

Traverse City is home to the National Cherry Festival. Every year more than 500,000 attendees enjoy the Festival, which is in its 90th year. This year, two of EPI’s team members participated in the Cherry Tee golf clinic, hosted by
the Grand Traverse Resort and Spa.
“Getting to work with other local Traverse City businesses, as a team was a great part of this event” said Marty Raymond, Sales here at EPI.
Another huge event that takes place here in our home town is the Northwestern Michigan Fair. This event has been around since 1908 and its sole purpose is
celebrating the area’s agriculture and youth programs. This year EPI sponsored Kingsley resident, 9 year old, Rylee Brown. Rylee has been in 4H for four years. He is a 5
th generation farmer and has quite the mechanical mind when it comes to tinkering with things. “My favorite part of having a cow at the fair is the beef jerky!” Rylee says. When he grows up he wants to join the military.
Good luck Rylee!
