New $30M carpentry, millwright training facility coming to Oakman Boulevard

A brand new, $30 million state-of-the-art training center for future carpenters and millwrights is coming to Detroit’s west side.

Plans were announced Monday afternoon during a press conference that featured city officials and leaders from the Statewide Michigan Carpenters and Millwrights Joint Apprenticeship and Training Fund.

The program currently has administrative and training centers spread across southeastern Michigan and the rest of the state. The new building will consolidate all of its operations under one roof.
