Ford Field

Ford Field is home to the Detroit Lions of the National Football League and had the honor of hosting Super Bowl XL in 2006. Located adjacent to Comerica Park, the 1.8 million square foot professional sports stadium comprises the heart of Detroit's sports district.

Scope of Work

Ford Field was an enormous undertaking, and Motor City Electric Co. worked as part of the design-assist team. Our professional project managers, engineers, and field supervisory personnel carefully coordinated with general contractor Hunt/Jenkins/White/Olson and its subcontractors to ensure integrated project delivery from conceptualization and design through implementation, construction, and closeout.


Value Added

Motor City Electric Co. incorporated state-of-the-art technology, stadium lighting, broadcast equipment, security, and telecommunications systems into its installation in the facility. The process included raceways and wiring for power, lighting, audio/video, and mechanical systems to ensure that it shines brightly in the public’s eyes in person and on the air.

Ford Field’s massive roof truss system spans an incredible 450 feet.


Teams built this assembly on the ground and then lifted it into position by a computerized system of jacks and pulleys. MCE pre-wired the massive truss roof system as it hovered approximately 60 feet off the ground before it lifted into its final position128 ft. above the concourse level.

Managing an aggressive work schedule, the team had the 65,000 seat Ford Field completed for its grand opening on August 24, 2002, just 22 months after breaking ground.
