McShane Construction Company was selected by Roers Companies to provide design-assist construction services for The Wildwood at Main. Located in Sun Prairie, Wisconsin, the new affordable housing development will offer 172 units.
Positioned on a 5.3-acre site at 150 Schneider Road, the development will incorporate two podium-style buildings with three stories of wood framing atop an underground parking garage. The exterior of the buildings will feature a white utility brick and Hardie panel façade with large windows allowing for abundant natural light in the units.
The site will offer best-in-class amenities including a club room, fitness room, playground, play berms and an outdoor grill and fireplace area. Additionally, the underground parking garage will provide 209 parking spaces for tenants, while surface lots will provide 134 spaces.
The project was designed with sustainability in mind to achieve Wisconsin Green Built Home certification.
As a design-assist project, McShane was engaged by the client during the schematic phase to offer input into the project’s design and provide value engineering services. Benefits of this delivery method include a reduction in cost and schedule overruns, improved constructability and added value to the project.
Korb + Associates is the architect for The Wildwood at Main. Completion of the development is slated for August 2023.
