Griffin Construction is proud to announce the completion of Prineville Apartments — a 148,401 square-foot residential complex in Prineville, Oregon. 

The Prineville Apartments Project

The $16,010,517 project included a 12-building campus with 135 residential units, a leasing office, and a pool. Included in the scope of work were the fencing, sidewalks, parking lots, and landscaping as well as the fire sprinkler, plumbing, mechanical, electrical, and fire alarm. 

Project Challenges

The architect on the project was Multi Tech Engineering Services and took 17 months to complete. The completion date was originally set for December of 2020, unfortunately, the pandemic slowed us down a bit. Manufacturing facilities were shut down left and right and it became difficult to get some of the products we needed from our vendors. 

Because Griffin Construction self-performed much of the work, even when manufacturing workers were sent home and supply chains were delayed, we were able to work overtime and keep schedules running on time—at no extra cost to the owner. 

The updated completion date was set for March 10 of 2021, and we are happy to report that it was finished on-time and looking beautiful. The residential complex includes two and three bedroom units, all finished with granite countertops and other high-end finishes. The leasing office was the last part of our scope of work and the whole thing is ready for new residents!

The Results

At the end, we had the opportunity to speak with Kevin Harrison, owner of Prineville Apartments. Even though our project hit right in the middle of a pandemic, he told us he was very happy with how everything came together and that working with Griffin Construction was a great experience. 

Prineville has been in need of residential units as the city has dealt with near-to-no vacancy rates during the pandemic. Most developers have preferred to build in the more-profitable Bend, but with a population that has been growing steadily since 2010, it was the perfect time for a developer to step-in and provide some much-needed living spaces for its residents. 

Designed for families, the Prineville Apartments range from 1,005 square feet to 1,139 square feet with plenty of room for children to play outside or go for a swim in the pool. Rental prices have yet to be determined.
