Mankato Fire Station #2

Brennan Companies worked as the General Contractor for the City of Mankato to build a new fire station on the north side of town. The station is equipped with 4 overhead doors, meeting room and kitchen.

Three issues encountered during this project included:

  • fast tracking several Subcontract project aspects to meet the required schedule
  • efficient communication and prompt pricing of on-site design modifications (often no cost changes)
  • thinking outside of the box with the Architect on material selections to meet schedule and cost constraints without sacrificing aesthetic quality.

Crossview Covenant Church

Our work at Crossview Covenant Church consisted of two projects. We added seven additional classrooms, an office, storage space and restrooms in the children’s and the 5Cs Preschool wing. These classrooms were added to foster continued growth with Crossview’s 5Cs program. The entrance to the children’s wing was reworked to create a better system for check-ins to keep safety as a top priority. The other half of the facility was renovated to be more functional. The former Great Room was split and built out with new carpet, paint and additional walls to transform it into an office and the middle school and high school lounge. Through the Construction Manager at Risk method, this project was completed on time and under budget.

The architectural wall system required flooring to be installed underneath the track.  With a hard finish date in mid-August, we coordinated an early installation of flooring, and provided full protection of new flooring while the project progressed.  Ultimately, the finish date was met, and the finishes were protected.

The Storage Room was not up to code due to added sheetrock walls.  Brennan Construction worked with the Owner and City inspector to develop a plan of action.  The certificate of occupancy was released in time for move-in.

Brennan Construction coordinated a fast-track installation of carpet during off hours to regain precious working days due to unforeseen delays in carpet procurement.  This was done at no extra cost to the Owner.
