Vanir was awarded a contract by Arizona Housing, Inc. (AHI) to provide project and construction management services for Phase II of the Collins Court affordable housing complex. For the project, Vanir provided construction oversight, cost controls, document controls, inspection services, claims avoidance, quality control and commissioning.
AHI is a Phoenix-based nonprofit organization that offers permanent, affordable and supportive housing for the unhoused. Founded in 1995 and based on the Housing First Model where individuals and families are provided housing with wraparound case management services, AHI currently owns and operates five multi-family properties consisting of 616 total units. Property features are designed to empower residents with amenities that promote self-sufficiency and create a healthy living environment. The housing communities contain fully-furnished studio apartments with garden patios, business centers, mini-marts, libraries, community rooms and on-site laundry services.
Construction on the 10,591-square-foot, 34-unit Collins Court II complex was completed in March 2023.
