COBO Center

Detroit, Michigan

Project Description

The COBO Center (formerly known as COBO Hall) is a convention center located in downtown Detroit, Michigan with views overlooking the Detroit River and Windsor. It is a world-renowned meeting and convention center that doubles as a hotel and entertainment venue. It went under extensive renovations in July 2013.

COBO Center was originally designed by local architects Giffels & Vallet. On Phase III of this project, we worked alongside Detroit Regional Convention Facility Authority and general contractor Turner Construction to create a flexible space with Skyfold Classic 51 retractable partitions. Skyfold was used in the Grand Riverview Ballroom entrance with a 32′ high a 20′ wide paneling solution. There are also two other Skyfold installations that are located in the basement from a previous renovation that act as a room division.

Skyfold walls are acoustic, retractable, operable, vertical folding walls that operate automatically with a push of a button and store in the ceiling to space space. Skyfold Classic walls have added a sense of decoration and practility to this Phase III of the COBO Center.

The Skyfold Classic series has four unique and different models that offer acoustic ratings up to STC 60. All the products have been manufactured with automatic, rigid, flat, and retractable acoustic moveable walls providing openings up to 36ft high and no width limit. All products from the Classic series are customizable and offers exceptional finishes which make this product a perfect fit for designers, architects and contractors to incorporate into nay style of their designs and maximize the use of space that is available.
