Olivet College Gillette Student Village
Due to increased enrollment, CSM Group was selected to construct the new, student housing facilities for Olivet College in order to expand the current student housing they had available.
The new student housing building started in September 2007 and was completed in June 2008. It is a two story, 36 bedroom townhouse style dorm. There are a total of 9 units consisting of a full kitchen including a dishwasher, a living room and dining area, a washer and dryer in each unit in the basement, 2 full bathrooms (one on each floor), and 4 bedrooms on the 2nd floor.
This project had the contingency spent by the bank before the 1st floor was framed. The remaining project was completed without the use of any contingency money.
After the project was bid out, the 3rd party developer wanted the building to be fully sprinkled. CSM went through a VE process and recovered $50,000 to allow for the fire suppression system to be added.
