WCAA Administration Building Project Team Celebrates Topping-Off Ceremony

Project team members from Ghafari, the Wayne County Airport Authority (WCAA), and general contractor Roncelli celebrated an important milestone in the construction of the WCAA Administration Building at Detroit Metro Airport: the “topping off” of the 82,000-square-foot facility’s structural steel framing. Team members gathered to sign the last beam before it was hoisted to its final resting place atop the structure. 

Ghafari provided full architecture and engineering services for the office building, working closely with the airport authority to design a dynamic work environment for their staff of more than 200 employees. Located adjacent to the airport’s North Terminal, the facility will feature open workspaces to facilitate interaction among team members, along with a series of formal and informal meeting spaces, a fitness center, and a central open atrium space.

Construction of the building will conclude next year.
