Build-to-rent, where developers build single-family home communities exclusively for rent, has been gaining momentum in recent years. Renters are drawn to the lifestyle of suburban, single-family neighborhood living with a yard and no shared walls. The developments are managed by a management company, similar to traditional multi-family, and the developer creates a continuous revenue stream. Build-to-rent allows for more streamlined and efficient construction as there is no need for options or customer choices, and the entire development can be completed at once. Wright Engineers is an industry leader in providing structural engineering services for build-to-rent projects.
PHOENIX BEHAVIORAL HEALTH AND SUPPORTIVE HOUSING CAMPUS
Patina Mountain Preserve Wellness Center and Dunlap Pointe Housing Community is the newest behavioral health and supportive housing campus completed by Native American Connections. These much-needed community resources serve those seeking treatment for substance abuse or who are experiencing homelessness or live with disabilities. The project abuts the Phoenix Mountain Preserve and provides panoramic views of the city and beyond. “The topography of the site and the adaptation of an existing building on the property created unique structural engineering challenges,” said Paul Krizan, Wright’s PM and principal-in-charge for the project. Perlman Architects of Arizona is the project’s architect.
