The Bozeman Gateway Katherine building is a multi-use commercial building housing professional offices, retail space, and restaurants. The client wanted the maximum amount of glass along with very few interior columns to provide the greatest amount of flexibility for dividing up the space for tenants. Challenges involved a short design schedule, tall stories, wide-open expanses, and complex curving geometry. The long spans and lack of solid walls steered the structure toward a structural steel moment frame system. This system allowed BCE to realize the architect’s vision while also providing a structure that was efficient and quick to construct.
