Grocery store construction: Brinkmann has built or renovated more than 20 Schnucks stores throughout the Midwest
Brinkmann Constructor has partnered with Schnucks Markets over the years to develop and deliver more than 20 stores. Many were new prototypes or difficult designs where our deep expertise led the process to the most efficient design. Time after time, we advocated for Schnucks through straight talk, unwavering integrity, and smart solutions that drive down costs, save time, and deliver value.

At 79,000 SF, this new sustainable prototype build featured atypical offerings for the time it was built in 2009. Brinkmann worked to save Schnucks $200,000 from the budget with creative value engineering solutions, including using tilt-up brick inlays to meet the demands of the city of Des Peres. This method was the first of its kind for grocery store construction. The store included a cheese room, wine display, walk-in beer cooler, aged beef cooler, state-of-the-art kitchen and classroom, and restaurant counter seating areas. The Brinkmann team worked with the project partners to incorporate many sustainability concepts into the design, including internal trash compactors, water-saving fixtures and sky lights for expanded energy management.
This fast-paced 64,000 SF project was completed one month ahead of schedule by strategically scheduling each segment of construction. The Brinkmann team was able to save more than $800,000 from the budget with creative value engineering solutions, including revising the site grading and layout, using different materials for water piping and more.
Brinkmann was specifically brought in to lead the initiative of a new, more economical prototype for this Schnucks store, incorporating typical design standards into a new type of pre-engineered structure. Although Brinkmann was only responsible for the building construction of this 38,000 SF store, the team went above and beyond to help coordinate the sitework construction on behalf of the client. A comprehensive list of value engineering items saved the project more than $130,000 from the budget. The schedule of this build was so well coordinated that Schnucks had plenty of time to prepare the store for opening.
