Gordie Howe International Bridge Demolition Project

Metro Strategies was contracted by prime contractor, Beam, Longest and Neff to provide community
outreach and local participation to Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) and Detroit-Headquartered
firms as it relates to the demolition of commercial and residential properties in the blueprint of the
much-anticipated Gordie Howe International Bridge. Because this is the first tangible sign of the
construction work commencing on this mega-project, it is important that local firms have optimal sub-
contracting opportunities for the demolition activities that will preclude the actual construction of the
bridge itself. Metro Strategies was selected because of its cutting-edge approaches and strategies to
include small construction firms on large infrastructure projects.
