Project Update - February 2020

Building renovations at Delta Dental of Michigan's headquarters:

Why is Delta Dental renovating and expanding?

In 2019, a workspace study revealed that employees were interested in significant changes on campus. Those renovations include adding more meeting space and collaborative work areas and installing enhanced technology throughout the building with an updated, modern aesthetic. Depending on employee growth, plans could include constructing an additional building.

Our company recognizes that in order to retain and recruit the best and the brightest employees, we must foster an attractive, employee-centric and healthy workplace. And in order to grow our business and spur economic development in the region, we must build a company that can accommodate the needs of our future workforce.
