MMA Loves West Michigan Design Week

MMA is excited to be participating in West Michigan Design Week again this year.

Last year MMA had a model of the Gerald R. Ford International Airport Viewing Park & Pavilion project in a gallery at the UICA. This year we are excited to follow up that model preview last year with a tour of the airport viewing park & pavilion which is currently under construction. The tour will be held on March 29 at Noon. Registration is FREE. Join our team along with the builder, Owen-Ames-Kimball and representatives from the Cascade Community Foundation.

We will also have a new model on display at the UICA of a residential project that we have under way.

Be sure to stop by both events and check out all that West Michigan Design Week has to offer!
