2. rcc: moorhead NAtional Guard armory project
“The Renovation of the Moorhead MN National Guard Armory is a complete renovation of the 52,756 sqft building. We started demolition in early December and are well ahead of schedule. The crews are doing an excellent job as we near the completion of demolition and will jump right into MEP rough ins as well as framing. There are many unique features with this remodel with 2 different vault demolitions with a new vault being installed. We will be installing brand new HVAC/Plumbing/Electrical systems which will address many issues that the old building had dealt with for years. In the spring we will be replacing the EDPM roof as well.”
-Alex Rubick, Project Manager
3. RPMR: dickinson team & hif
Lindsey Fischer has a fun update regarding our Dickinson Team!
“Dickinson traffic is really starting to increase again! The team has done a outstanding job of turning units and filling them right back up. Our occupancy numbers have grown tremendously in the past couple of months! We have officially hit 90% or greater at all locations out in Dickinson.
HIF (Housing Incentive Funds) units have become our focus on getting these units filled. At Prairie Winds Apartments, we have 18 units in each building that have special qualifications that residents have to meet in order to occupy the unit and receive special pricing. The biggest requirement is to be considered an ESW (Essential Service Worker). This past year has been a struggle to find those applicants that were wanting to fill out the paperwork to qualify. Our team put some marketing time into figuring out how/who can we find and market to that can lease these units. Over the past couple months we have increased occupancy in those buildings are down to only a handful of HIF units that are available!
The Dickinson team is crushing it out there! Way to go!”
4. RW: Medora Wild Horse Apartments
Project update coming your way from Project Manager, Jerry Schiff:
“Well things are really starting to progress on this project now that we have our roof finally on the building and shingling is completed. Our windows will start to go in this week which will help in getting the building sealed up and weather tight. In about two weeks we will be starting on the getting the siding installed which will really start to make the outside of the building look completed.
On the inside of the building, our electrical, HVAC and plumbing contractors have been working hard to get their interior rough-ins in place, so we can start in put up drywall in about a week. Our intent on this project is to finish this building starting on the 3rd floor and working our way down to 1st floor. Overall, we are shooting for a completion of June 1st for this project.”
