Ground is breaking on the new Michigan Infrastructure & Transportation Association (MITA) facility in Okemos this week. The new facility will also house the Michigan Concrete Paving Association (MCPA) and Asphalt Paving Association of Michigan (APAM), displaying a commitment from the industry toward cooperation and unity.
“This new facility is going to be a great service to our staff, members and partners,” said Bob Patzer, executive vice president at MITA. “Being able to house not only MITA, but also our key industry partners is a huge, unprecedented step in moving our industry forward in Michigan.”
The new 20,000-square-foot facility will feature increased space for training and meetings for membership and staff. The two-story facility will house MITA on the first floor with MCPA and APAM leasing space on the second floor. In addition to increased space, the building also features improved technology for each of the organizations.
“We see the new facility serving as an ‘industry’ building for our members and industry partners,” Patzer said. “It has long been our goal to bring everyone in our industry together under one roof to share in the common goal of promoting and growing our mutual members’ businesses throughout Michigan.”
