VERTEX has been retained for Construction Management services of a five-story senior living apartment complex. The project, located in Plainsboro, New Jersey, consists of 260 apartment units totaling 503,500 gross square feet. The structure consists of three and a half wood-framed stories of apartment units over a one and a half story concrete parking garage.
VERTEX originally provided Owner Project Management services for the project, which was being completed by an out-of-state general contractor partnered with a local general contractor. However, the project was faced with multiple schedule and management challenges. When difficulties continued, Ownership made an effort to move the contract to the local general contractor, though the entity filed for bankruptcy prior to finalizing the change in contract.
With VERTEX already heavily involved in the project, Ownership decided to revise VERTEX’s role from Owner Project Management services to Construction Management services, overseeing all construction activities of subcontractors and managing all work to completion.
