Lark on 42nd

When CA Ventures approached Prescient with plans for a six-story off-campus dormitory to house students attending the University of South Florida, the finish date was all but impossible to meet — at least using typical construction techniques.

But Chris Hirst, vice president of construction for CBG, had an alternative plan for the dorm. He decided to go with a faster building technique — a 3D computer design system developed by Denver-based Prescient Co., Inc.. The patented technology and manufacturing company designs, then pre-constructs segments of the building, shipping them to the construction site for installation. The deadline was met thanks to Prescient’s technology. From start to finish the project was completed in 11 months.

What our clients are saying

“Prescient is our go-to partner when a project absolutely must be done on time. As a general contractor, we run the anchor position in the relay race of a project’s creation. No matter what all the other team members have done up front, when we get the baton, we have to finish on time and within budget. Having Prescient on the team from day one is one of the primary reasons we always finish in first place. We have converted multiple projects from other structural systems to Prescient for the simple reason that we would not have been able to finish the projects on time and on budget without Prescient on the team. Our clients have been so impressed with Prescient they frequently bring their peers and consultants to the construction site.”
