Brinkman Construction continues to build on its success
Fort Collins, CO – October 6, 2009 – Brinkman Construction has completed a 15,833 square-foot office tenant improvement construction project for Agrium Advanced Technologies (AAT), located on the 4th floor of Rangeview III at Centerra in Loveland. The Brinkman team is now working on the construction for an additional 15,833 square-foot space for Agrium, located on the 3rd floor of Rangeview III. UGL-Equis is the Construction Manager for Agrium, McWhinney is the lessor, and Box Studios of Denver is the architect.
Paul Brinkman notes “We feel very fortunate that we’ve been able to maintain a steady workload during this economic downturn. This is definitely a reflection of our ability to offer our clients competitive pricing, top quality construction, and completing all of our projects on time or ahead of schedule.”
Agrium’s 4th floor space houses their new corporate offices with high-end interior finishes throughout. The office layout includes boardroom meeting spaces, managers and staff offices, and a break room area with spectacular views of the Front Range. Unique architectural detail was planned throughout Agrium’s office including etched glass custom floor-to-ceiling walls, decorative millwork and casework, and additional custom specialty walls. The Brinkman team managed an aggressive 8-week schedule and completed the project on August 10, 2009. The 3rd floor space also requires an aggressive schedule and will be completed on November 1, 2009.
