Swiss Village & Swiss Hall
Construction is moving along at what will be the new site of the Swiss Village, a combination of new condos and homes in the St. Joseph neighborhood.
Inside the old Swiss Hall, the building is still undergoing some initial demolition, and it’s being prepared for the new utilities. The building will house 18 rental apartments split between three floors. Currently, there is just a basement and a main open floor, so Schaefer Construction will be building brand new floors to meet the design.
The entire property is just under 2.7 acres, and surrounding the perimeter of the Swiss Hall will be 23 brand new shotgun homes. Each house will have its own garage and a slightly different design from the house next to it.
In the center of the property there will also be space for condo parking and a community garden.
When serving as a general contractor, we engage a large number of skilled craftsmen by competitively bidding subcontractors for any applicable trades. Collaboration is vital to everything we do, and we approach projects as a partner to the design team and the project owner.
We provide construction management services as an owner’s agent, or on an at-risk basis. By acting as an extension of the owner’s team, Schaefer frees the owner to focus on other project dynamics while we orchestrate the details based on established goals and budgets.
Working together from the start of the project, our construction management team can quickly identify and resolve potential project challenges. As Construction Manager at Risk, we work with the design consulting team and stakeholders to optimize the design, schedule and cost. We negotiate a guaranteed maximum price and bid all trade contracts to ensure our clients get the best pricing value from qualified subcontractors. Using a partnering approach, we assist owners in identifying and selecting experienced, qualified firms with proven performance records for their design and construction team.
