Grace Christian University
Grand Rapids, MI
Grace Christian University is a private evangelical college located in Wyoming,Michigan. First Companies had previously collaborated with their team to provide architectural and civil engineering and create the master plan for their original campus. In 2023, they entrusted First Companies with the construction of a 3-story townhouse dormitory building. This new addition to their campus includes 29 units of 2-bed, 2-bath housing anda common area on the main floor. It’s strategically located across from oneof their main classroom facilities and the main campus entrance.In spite of a very challenging procurement market, First Companies was able to bring the project to completion on time and under budget. Grace Christian University has already welcomed their first group of students to the new dorm building.
“We could not be happier with First Companies and the new Grace Townhomes. From the initial design conversations to the final punch list details, First Companies gave us clear and accurate information so we could make the best decisions. We had a hard deadline for moving students into the Townhomes. Despite worldwide supply chain issues, First Companies met this deadline completing the Townhomes on time and on budget. Throughout the project, the University received project updates with photos. These updates were exactly what we needed to keep our Board of Directors informed without additional work on our part. Now that students have been living inthe Townhomes for a few months, they absolutely love their new living spaces.”
