Mills Construction was the low bidder for the SDSU Townhouses which was part of the Southeast University Redevelopment project. Each townhouse consists of 12 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms, and 3 kitchen/living rooms. There are 3 units in each townhouse. 2 of the units have 1 bedroom on the main floor, and 3 bedrooms upstairs. The third unit is all on the main floor making it handicap accessible. The finishes for the townhouses consist of maple doors and trim, maple cabinets, quartz countertops, and LVT flooring. The exterior finishes included Marvin windows and James Hardie lap siding and staggered shakes. Overall the project consisted of 23,000 square feet and lasted 11 months. This project had its challenges.  To build 5 townhouses that have a total of 60 bedrooms, 15 kitchens, and 30 bathrooms in 11 months’ is tough, especially when you throw in a wet fall, a cold and snowy winter, and a wet spring.  This is a project we can look back at with all the difficulties and say that we worked through them all and still got the project done on time! Congratulations to all the Mills Construction employees who worked on this successful project!
