Streets of St. Charles is a town square environment where residents and visitors alike can enjoy shopping, living, modern offices, dining, hospitality, and entertaining amenities.

Brinkmann delivered the project on an aggressive timeline, allowing the owner to secure residents and collect revenue sooner than expected.

This development includes:

  • 1,250-space garage
  • 8-screen AMC movie theater
  • 100,000-square-foot office building
  • 400,000-square-foot residential tower with 309 residential units
  • 60,000-square-foot retail and restaurant space
Idea
Speed up Theater Construction with Prefabrication

Despite an irregular, steeply sloping site and difficult foundation scope, Brinkmann developed an economical, design-build solution to deliver the project’s AMC theater on a record-setting fast-track schedule.

Contemporary movie theaters often feature stadium seating framed with red iron and light gauge framing. Brinkmann significantly sped up the project’s delivery using prefabricated trusses. AMC now uses this insight as a best practice for theater construction projects.

AMC Theater
Result
Speed to market in 6.5 months
Delivered in just over six months, the movie theater was delivered three-and-a-half months earlier than AMC’s typical schedule. In fact, the company noted that, for the number of screens and the type of construction, this was the fastest schedule in AMC history.
Frankly I was skeptical that Brinkmann would be able to meet the aggressive schedule that they had put together with Cullinan Properties, our partner in the project. However, Brinkmann proved me wrong by completing the theater in record time.

Idea
Saved time with phased approach

For the residential building, a three-phased approach allowed the owner to occupy the clubhouse, amenities, and first-phase residential areas three months prior to the final turnover of units.

Result
Three-months of early revenue for owner
This phasing plan allowed the client to start collecting revenue prior to the overall completion of the building.
The Brinkmann team approaches each project with a proactive and holistic view including but not limited to value engineering recommendations, identifying risks to minimize construction challenges, and scheduling impacts.
