The Rise on Chauncey
Brinkmann helps client get student housing development back on-track and completes it in 19 months.
Located in the heart of Purdue University’s campus life, the Rise on Chauncey is a new, 458,000 square-foot student housing development.
When budget issues arose while in the design phase with another general contractor and threatened to derail the project, CA came to Brinkmann Constructors to help get the project back on-track because of Brinkmann’s proven performance on several other CA Ventures projects. By providing alternate design ideas and utilizing unique construction techniques, Brinkmann was able to reduce the cost of the building and ultimately save the project from being terminated due to budget overages.
The Brinkmann team presented many items that provided added value to the project, however, the most significant was a redesign of the building’s foundation and earth retention systems. Additionally, the team addressed the exterior skin panel sizes by making them more modular thereby reducing the amount of wasted material. In total, over $2 million of solutions were accepted and implemented during the design phase.
