TEC was retained to provide Construction Materials Testing and Inspection services for the new Shinola Hotel located at 1400 Woodward Avenue in downtown Detroit.
As a concept by Shinola and Bedrock, a major Detroit real estate developer, the Shinola Hotel has 129 guest rooms with residential style units offering different guest experiences and 16,000 square feet of retail and food and beverage space. It paired two restored historic buildings – the former T.B. Rayl Co. department store and a former Singer sewing machine store that also was home to the Singer Sewing Machine Company – with three newly constructed ones.
The hotel opened in early 2019.
