2550 University Avenue Apartments
The 2550 University Avenue Apartments are owned by a Madison-based family firm, the Mullins Group LLC. The new construction of this multi-story (six floor), mixed-use building includes 130 units (consisting of approximately 47,000 square feet per floor), eight townhouse structures, three sidewalk level flats, an 8,600 square foot commercial space, and a 152 space underground parking garage.
Faith Technologies began work here in July 2011, and finished in June 2012. Our scope of work included both the electrical and specialty systems.
For the electrical portion, our project team installed a 4,000 amp, 208 volt service with a 125 kw kva generator. The backbone infrastructure of this project included two Cat5e, and two RG6 feeds to each apartment unit’s consolidation points from the telecommunication rooms located throughout the building.
For the specialty systems portion, our project team installed 42 analog cameras, 12 access controlled doors, owner-supplied head-end equipment, a full Simplex fire alarm system, and an Airphone, audio, and a video intercom system throughout.
Much of this project was constructed during the winter months, which always poses unique challenges, yet the project teams remained on-schedule and delivered quality work. Attention to detail was crucial on this project – from the LED technology utilized for the lighting, to the design – and all project team members were very hands on and knowledgeable throughout its duration.
These new mixed-use apartments offer residents convenience to many of Madison’s unique amenities and services including the University of Wisconsin Hospital, Veteran Affair (VA) Hospital, University of Wisconsin campus, Hilldale shopping district, and Monroe Street shopping and dining, downtown, restaurants, shops, and Sundance Cinemas.
