Construction Begins On New RECARO Child Safety, LLC Building

Posted by – Howard Wager, Building Inspector

Construction of the new 90,000 square foot facility for RECARO Child Safety, LLC has begun!  Two weeks ago the site was a grassy vacant parcel and now excavation has cleared the site for an attractive building for this productive business.


Construction is scheduled to start today, September 1st with the concrete footings.  The footings are being dug and the concrete trucks are pouring the footings as you read this.  When they are done, the structural steel will begin and is scheduled to take about six to eight weeks.


Typically, fall construction schedules in Michigan require contractors to do whatever it takes to get the building shell up and enclosed before winter. This project is right on track to be basically closed in before Old Man Winter arrives.  The contractor, General Development is expected to have the entire project completed in the summer of 2016.  Stay tuned for updates as the new building takes shape.
