Construction Pauses During COVID-19 Shutdown

By | Construction Updates, Latest News

We were making excellent progress on packing and moving until March 23, when Governor Whitmer issued her executive order mandating a shutdown.  Per that order, all work has currently stopped, both in our existing building and in our temporary space.

So what does COVID-19 mean for our renovation project?  At this point in time, it is simply causing a delay.  Nothing has changed with our funding or our plans.  We just have to move the schedule out in proportion to how long this shutdown lasts.  We can’t estimate a time frame with any degree of confidence until the executive order has been lifted and we can get back to work.   

That means we do not yet have a date by which we plan to move into our temporary space at Courtland Center.  We’ll let you know as soon as possible.  Stay tuned for more updates!
