AGI Construction

Established in 2008, AGI delivers design-build projects predominantly in Southwest Detroit. As general contractors we contribute to Detroit’s ‘Built Environment Ecosystem’, we promote sustainability through green building practices and equitable neighborhood engagement. As Detroit natives, we take pride being from the city, growing our business here before the revitalization boom.


18th Street Project

We are currently rehabilitating a historic 100-year-old property, purchased in 2017, in the heart of the Hubbard-Richard community in Southwest Detroit, to provide office space for AGI and associated design-build businesses. In parallel to the development of the property, we have been developing different approaches to community-led design, mentoring local residents and hosting community events centered around the development of the property. Once in operation, the space will act as an incubator to grow local talent and a platform from which residents can engage with local development positively. We will upscale our mentoring capabilities, host a neighborhood green workshop series, host community information meetings about new development and continue to engage local residents in design-build opportunities. The space will embody the Detroit Design initiative’s vision of inclusive design, while building local equity and strengthening Detroit’s built environment ecosystem.
