Steel Erection Begins
For The New DMC Cardiovascular Heart Hospital

Douglas Steel has begun erection of nearly 2,000 tons of structural steel and miscellaneous iron for the new $78 million DMC Cardiovascular Heart Hospital in Detroit, MI. 
DMC Cardio Start  

This world-class facility will provide a new home for the nationally recognized DMC Cardiovascular Institute. Slated for completion in early 2014, this project is part of the nearly $850 million investment in the DMC by Vanguard Health Systems.


Douglas Steel is under contract with Jenkins/Skanska Joint Venture to detail, fabricate and erect the steel for the

6-story 190,000 sf facility.

3D Model Exchange Streamlines Shop Drawing Review Process


Douglas imported the 3D model from Harley Ellis Devereaux, the Engineer of Record, into our detailing software. The 3D model including structural details and connection calculations were developed and then exported back to Harley Ellis for their use in 3D model review. This collaborative effort reduced the normal two week shop drawing review process to only one week in order to keep pace with the fast track schedule.
