During the last sixty-two years, Madison Madison International has designed multiple building types. Many of which have received design awards for multifamily housing, office buildings, fire and police stations, K-12 schools, university buildings and a US Embassy Building in Dakar, Senegal West Africa.
The Professional Schools Building at Dillard University is a multi-disciplinary academic building that houses the Divisions of Nursing, Business, Math, Computer Science, Natural Sciences and Public Health.
The 128,000 square feet, three-story building was the first LEED gold building in Louisiana. It has a green roof that doubles as a terrace. It features a 3-story atrium with multi-story windows and operable glass walls. The atrium is often used for community events.
The building showcases clinical simulation labs, lecture halls and a Moot Court for trial simulations. Other features include a 400-seat main lecture theatre, chemistry and physics laboratories, a distance learning classroom, video conferencing room, faculty offices and departmental libraries. Advanced integrated technologies have been incorporated for ease of communication and instruction.
The Cleveland Browns Stadium
The Cleveland Browns open-air stadium boasts 73,200 seats, more than 120 suites and super suites, two club facilities, locker and shower facilities, ground facilities, toilette facilities, press and media facilities, and heated playing field.
After coordinating the demolition of the old Browns Stadium, MMI was part of the program and construction management team that later led the construction of the new stadium. Overseeing the architectural and electrical construction packages, MMI had a significant role in bringing the stadium to life. Other areas of responsibility included overseeing the implementation of the power supply, installation of the canopy roof, and general construction inspection.
Lower Woodward Facade Improvement Program
Detroit Central Business District “CBD” is home to more than 200 historic buildings, erected between 1917 and 1935. The Detroit Development Authority “DDA” created a unique matching grant program to improve the exterior conditions of over 200 buildings and parking lots in downtown Detroit, prior to the 2006 Super Bowl XL.
As program manager, Madison Madison International was charged to develop program guidelines, historic preservation building guidelines and best practices, pre-qualify architects and contractors, develop communications program for property owners and businesses, develop all marketing campaign materials, program identity, oversee construction, and approve reimbursements for the matching grant. We also assembled, informed and matched financial institutions with property owners for their portion of the matching grant. All of this was accomplished within 24 months.
The work to properties included tuck pointing, window replacements, door replacements, roof replacements, lighting and general facade upgrades.
The DDA provided $24M to this facade improvement program, however the overall construction impact was over $75M as property owners exceeded the match. This singular program went far beyond the Super Bowl as a catalyst for the renaissance that is currently happening downtown Detroit.
