The Factory, located just a few blocks away from Utah State University in Logan, Utah, is one of Nelson Brothers Construction Management’s newest state-of-the-art student housing construction projects. The construction team recently completed Phase 2 of this project and is currently working on Phase 3, which will add studio apartments, one and two bedroom apartments, and an expansion to the parking garage which will provide parking for every room addition in Phase 3.
The Factory was designed with one main goal: bring residents together. The entire building is built around different activity areas with rooms designed in a social setting, all in an effort to enable face to face interaction. Some of the on-sight activities offered include a bowling alley, rock climbing wall, yoga room, double decker hot tubs, game room, and theater. Rooms at The Factory are considered to be the largest in the market providing ample space and privacy to many of the residents.
Services performed by Nelson Brothers Construction Management include project management, financial management, schedule management, self-perform concrete, safety conscious, subcontractor coordination, quality control, feasibility study, pre-programming, conceptual budgets, constructibility reviews, value analysis sessions, scheduling, planning and design reviews, and estimating and bidding. Unique challenges of this project include working with limited space on an very tight site, and working adjacent to existing structures.
