Project Overview

Ideal Contracting was awarded the general contracting package for the Toyota Research & Development Calty Design Studio Expansion. The purpose of this project was to consolidate Toyota’s Calty Design Studio team into a central location on the Toyota R & D campus in Ann Arbor, MI.

The site proposed numerous challenges in logistics and operations. The owner maintained occupancy with its designers during construction, requiring temporary services to be provided for the building occupants. The entire parking lot was removed to allow for new building foundations, new underground utilities, new underground storm detention, and a new geothermal well system. Ideal provided temporary access walk paths for Toyota personnel and worked closely with the Toyota project team to resolve the parking issues by proposing alternate locations for Toyota team member parking. Toyota supported this effort by providing a shuttle service for its team members.
