Lincoln Builders recently completed phase 1 of the ION Baton Rouge renovation project near the campus of Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge. This 286-unit, 5 story apartment complex was originally constructed by an out of state contractor, but was continually plagued by water intrusion and craftsmanship issues. Lincoln Builders was tasked with removing, replacing, and waterproofing the entire exterior of the building (stucco and cement siding) to alleviate the water infiltration issues. In addition to the major exterior overhaul, Lincoln also renovated and refurbished 400,000 square feet of interior, including structural corrections plus renovation of the 1st through 5th floor/6th floor penthouses, as well as, the roof top outdoor/pool deck feature. Many other interior updates included the indoor gym, entertainment area, and approximately 20,000 square feet of offices. Although Phase 1 is complete; the project, in its entirety, will be complete in early 2020. Lincoln has worked around the clock to make sure this project was on schedule for the 2019-2020 school year.
Groundbreaking was recently held on the new campus of the Edward Via College of Osteopathic Medicine (VCOM) at the University of Louisiana Monroe. The beautiful 100,000 square-foot, four-story precast and masonry building will include:
• two 2,400-square-foot, two-story classrooms that seat more than 200;
• a 4,100-square-foot anatomy lab;
• a 3,300-square-foot osteopathic manipulative medicine lab;
• a large simulation and standardized patient center;
• 20 small-group study rooms;
• large, quiet study areas; and
• three student lounges.
Lincoln is very excited to have a part in providing a home for this medical school which is predicted to have a $70-80 million impact in the northeast Louisiana market. Development of the medical school campus is the result of a successful private/public partnership with VCOM receiving no state funding for construction or operation.
