Imagine this scenario:

You are responsible for delivering a new student housing complex for the start of the next school year. Suddenly you get a call from the General Contractor informing you of problems. This is a disastrous setback since it impacts the project budget and the delivery schedule. Providing temporary housing to accommodate students until the buildings are complete is the unfortunate alternative.

It doesn’t have to be this way!

The situation above would have never happened if the project owner had worked with FINFROCK. As a single source Design-Builder that delivers projects on time with no excuses, we reduce cost, delivery times, and owner risk by combining design, manufacturing and construction into an efficient, unified process. As a single point of contact for our clients, we eliminate the hassle of dealing with multiple companies, cost overruns, and scheduling issues inherent in a traditional building process. In short, we take responsibility for the entire design and construction process. In this issue of Solutions, we provide the “how” and the “why” for delivering student housing projects on-time and on-budget. Innovative technology is at the core of what we do and our project delivery system is unmatched in its quality and efficiency. Turn the page to learn how we can deliver your next student housing project with unparalleled speed of construction without sacrificing quality.


Raising the Bar on Student Housing


From modern apartments with luxury amenities to traditional residence halls and suite-style housing – FINFROCK is the only vertically-integrated firm that lowers project delivery risk for student housing development. With in-house design, manufacturing and construction services, FINFROCK provides guaranteed pricing before the completion of design documents and compresses schedules to give you predictable costs and timely completion. Student Housing owners gain tremendous benefits, including superior flexibility and sustainability thanks to long spans and less column intrusion. FINFROCK’s concrete structures also provide greater durability, reduced building maintenance, and lower lifecycle costs.


Beauty and Durability


Superior architectural appeal is a reality with durable all precast concrete construction. FINFROCK uses a wide variety of architectural details and finishes to highly customize student housing projects at minimal cost. You can attain aesthetically pleasing finishes through color variation, exposed aggregate, cast-in brick, or integral architectural features.


High-Tech Design


Building Information Modeling (BIM) is an integral part of every project we do. Because we can construct your project virtually, you can tour your new building online months before actual construction begins. This gives you the option to make design modifications early and economically. The result is faster on-site construction and the elimination of conflicts that can lead to costly change orders – or worse, delayed or halted construction.


Innovation Without Boundaries


FINFROCK’s patented DualDeck ™ Building System is the powerhouse behind innovative offsite construction without the typical constraints of modular construction. Working in our state-of-the-art, quality-controlled factory setting, we cast building subsystems such as electrical, mechanical, plumbing and fire protection into the building components during manufacturing. As a result, our job sites don’t require large staging areas or as much traffic as traditional job sites. Cleaner, safer job sites with faster onsite construction means less disruption for your ongoing operations – and your students.
