By providing value engineering and quality construction methods, we help each building owner and operator realize long-term value and success for their project.

The Marigold was the first mixed-use development constructed in Greater Mankato in decades. As such, this project required a constrained construction budget to line up with existing rental rates. Brennan Construction met this challenge with creatively formulating and effectively pricing various project aspects including; the exterior window system, the mechanical system, and other exterior materials.
Three issues encountered on this project included:
- completing the project on time (before the onset of winter conditions added costs),
- coordinating mechanical and electrical designs within the limited available space within the structure
- effectively tracking areas of costs under budget to allow the Owner to implement added scope, such as an electronic monument sign
Brennan Construction completed 5 Townhomes with a total of 18 units in conjunction with the Minnesota Housing Authority for Blue Earth County.
This 18 townhome unit project was a collaboration between various entities resulting in an income based multi-unit project. The project was LEED certified and ‘Buy-American’.
We worked closely with the Architect and Owner to complete the project on time and within budget. Our accounting department worked diligently to ensure proper HUD documentation and requirements were met, as well as exact specifications for the LEED certification and ‘Buy-American’ were followed.
