Luxury campus living delivered on a fast-track schedule
The Rise on 9th is a ten-story student apartment building located in downtown Columbia, Missouri.
Solutions identified by Brinkmann allowed the project to be delivered on a tight schedule, all while presenting approximately $4 million in savings.
Rise on 9th includes 178 luxury apartments ranging from studios to four-bedroom units with a total of 415 beds. With a variety of amenities, from a third-floor pool and entertainment deck to on-site parking, a health and fitness center, penthouse lunge, and private study lounges, Rise on 9th goes above and beyond traditional on-campus living.
Throughout the course of the project, Brinkmann’s team of engineers and project managers used extensive construction knowledge and ongoing training to reduce cost and timing without compromising the project’s appearance.
Brinkmann found a steel supplier that utilizes an automated fabrication line to reduce the time and manpower required for production.
Using this automated process, lead times on structural steel were significantly reduced. Fabrication errors were minimized to almost zero.
Brinkmann also found efficiencies in the use of prefabricated wall panels from levels three to the roof. Fully fabricated in the shop, these panels consisted of metal framing, continuous insulation, weather barrier, unit windows, and high-end open-joint cementitious panel system.
The Brinkmann team delivered the fast-track project in 16 months with $4 million in savings.
