Supply Line Valve Replacement at Sheridan II


DMC was retained as the General Contractor by Detroit Housing Commission for replacing valves for the  water supply lines at the Sheridan II Senior living Apartments.The building was occupied with senior citizens and hence the project was divided u=into 4 phases. DMC had to ensure proper notices were provided for utility shutt off and areas shut-off so the residents hand minimum inconvinence. We also had to pay special attention to noise pollution as the hire rise tower was occupied.
