Prescient, a building information modeling (BIM) design and building technology company, has completed Uncommon Fort Collins (pictured), a student housing project in downtown Fort Collins, Colo.

The property, owned by CA Student Living and contracted by Dohn Construction, features 120 furnished and unfurnished apartment homes, with studios and one-, two-, and three-bedroom units available as well as on-site, ground-floor retail options.

Located at 302 S. College Ave., the six-floor, 114,000-square-foot development, designed by OZ Architecture, was completed in time for the 2017–18 academic year.

“Student housing projects have strict move-in deadlines coupled with expensive penalties if those deadlines aren't met,” said JJ Smith, president of CA Student Living and principal of CA Ventures, in a statement. “The Prescient solution not only allowed us to meet aggressive deadlines by trimming weeks off the schedule required for other building materials, it was cost-effective and allowed us to deliver a truly showcase student housing project to CSU.”

Prescient’s Digital Thread technology is designed to optimize architecture, engineering, and construction by incorporating a combination of standardized, pre-assembled steel posts, trusses, and panels that are custom-manufactured using the company’s proprietary design software. Prescient claims its system is a superior option for multi-unit projects such as Uncommon Fort Collins because it is noncombustible, minimizes disruption in areas surrounding the construction zone, and reduces the need for callbacks, helping project managers reduce both their time lines and budgets.

Uncommon Fort Collins is Prescient's seventh student housing development, following OU Cross Village in Norman, Okla.; The Corner at West Campus in Austin, Texas; Kansas University Central District Residence Hall and Kansas University Central District Apartments in Lawrence, Kan.; Uncommon Tampa on the University of South Florida's campus in Tampa Bay, Fla.; and Colorado Christian University Residence Hall in Lakewood, Colo.
