Community Involvement

Volunteerism and community outreach have always been important to Global Telecom Solutions. Our recent relocation from Detroit’s suburbs to its historic Corktown area has increased our opportunities for community involvement at the same time it more directly connects us to Detroit’s exciting economic renewal.

Purchasing the Archdiocese of Detroit’s former print shop building gave us a unique opportunity to renovate the building by hosting a graffiti competition. Derek Weaver, principal of the 4731 Group, was contracted to renovate our new headquarters which had not seen improvement in more than 30 years. Weaver's firm, which also runs the nonprofit project, Grand River Creative Corridor, organized a dozen artists to give the building a vibrant, artistic makeover. More than two dozen murals found throughout the office space were created by local artists including: Sintex, FEL3000ft, TEAD and fine artists Sydney James and Christopher Batten.
