Project Detail

The West Campus Student Housing project was a new 6-story housing facility located in downtown Austin, Texas. Designed as a contemporary midrise, multifamily housing complex, the project consisted of the demolition of an existing apartment complex and construction of a new building composed of 156 units within approximately 135,000 square feet, a parking garage containing 259 parking spaces within approximately 110,000 square feet, an outdoor swimming pool, courtyards and activity decks for the purposes of attracting upper-level economic students, and young university staff. Spire was engaged to perform a construction cost evaluation, labor and material escalation analysis, feasibility study, and change analysis to determine the increased pricing reflected during a 6-month delay in project award. While the conditions of the dispute are confidential, Spire assisted the contractor’s lawyer by serving as a consulting and testifying expert for matters pertaining to cost and schedule.
