Prairie Center

Brighton, CO

Managed site development and infrastructure improvements for 2,400-acre mixed-use project construction— one of the Denver area’s largest and most complex projects.

2,400 acres
$82 million
In total, Brinkmann was able to discover and deliver more than $10 million in unexpected savings on this mixed-use project.

The multi-use community hosts retail, commercial, residential, and institutional space. Brinkmann was able to establish our Colorado office in our commitment to this long-term project. We served as the construction manager for more than 27 Prairie Center Metropolitan District projects totaling more than $46 million. Brinkmann also served as the general contractor for the private developer, THF Realty, on more than 10 projects spanning about 150,000 square feet of vertical construction and 250 acres of site work.


Be the Leader the Project Needs

Brinkmann was involved in this project so early that we helped assemble the comprehensive team of specialists that would take it on. In time, our role extended beyond management into leadership, as our Project Team provided front-end design, coordinated pre-construction phases, participated in bidding, and guided engineers to produce more cost-effective solutions.

Home Depot
Aggressive Scheduling Delivers Early
Perhaps most significantly, Brinkmann stepped up and took ownership of the schedule, particularly in relationship to Prairie Center retailers eager to open and capture new customers. Home Depot, for example, was the first retailer committed. Brinkmann established an aggressive, rock-solid schedule to ensure Home Depot opened two weeks early in time for big sales over Memorial Day weekend.
