FH Martin has completed numerous projects for Grosse Pointe Schools, beginning with the construction of Pierce Middle School in 1939. In 2005, FH Martin was selected to build a 64,500 SF addition to Grosse Pointe North High School. The project included a new four-story building, constructed between and connected to two existing buildings. This new building houses 14 science classrooms with full laboratories in 13 and a computer lab in one. The building is constructed on approximately 100, 110-foot deep drilled concrete piers. In addition, the project involved the construction of a separate building addition to house a 'multi-purpose' room, primarily to be used in performing arts education. Both buildings are constructed of steel, block and brick and the science building features a glass-enclosed stairwell and glass curtain wall at the front of the building.

FH Martin's relationship with Grosse Pointe Schools began in 1939 with the construction of Pierce Middle School, and has continued with several projects throughout the school district since then. In 2004, Grosse Pointe Schools chose FH Martin to restore the historically significant 5,000 SF auditorium at Grosse Pointe South High School. Originally built in the 1930s, the auditorium had gone through numerous cosmetic changes throughout the years, which resulted in the space losing much, if not all, of its original splendor. Working with the historic restoration experts at Quinn Evans Architects,
FH Martin was charged with turning back time to bring the beauty and elegance back to this space, while also bringing it up to modern times as a working school auditorium.

The project scope consisted of restoration of the stage, backstage, main level and balcony seating spaces. The project also included upgrades to the mechanical and electrical systems supporting these spaces, provisions for new sound equipment and lighting equipment for theatrical purposes, improvements to architectural finishes, new fixed, upholstered seating and installation of dramatic chandeliers. One of the most unique aspects of the project was the restoration and recreation of the original intricate plaster work and decorative painting, including gold leaf details.
