Building Strong Communities

Investing in the Future

Ideal Contracting is committed to building the Detroit community with a strong concentration on Southwest Detroit. Working together with our community partners, we have made many developments in our local community that have delivered lasting impacts on our neighborhood.

Creating Solutions For A

Strong Community

Environmental

Cadillac Urban Gardens was developed in partnership with General Motors to transform a vacant lot to a beautiful garden with assistance from the local youth in Southwest Detroit. Scarcyny Park and Garden was revitalized in efforts to add an aesthetic value to the neighborhood.

Education

We are strong believers in educating and training our youth to prepare them for the workforce. This is precisely why we have helped develop The Corner of Excellence. This includes Holy Redeemer Grade School and Detroit Cristo Rey High School, both of which have become a pipeline for STEAM education.

Collaboration

Ideal Contracting is focused on empowering a sustainable community through collaboration with MotorCity Makeover, General Motors, and Southwest Detroit Environmental Vision. The mission of the collaborative volunteer events is to transform blighted places into cherished community spaces.
